4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Unblended , straight from the oak barrel in the gypsum mines ! Big maple aromas. Faint vanilla flavors are masked by lots of maple . Medium/light body . Way too easy to drink . Excellent !

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the 1st annual Asheville Rare & Wild Beer Tasting 2013, this pours black with mahogany fringes, and has a very robust choco head. The nose is of roasted vanilla. Flavors have lots of bourbon upfront, followed by dark esters, malts and vanilla, finishing with a cotton-candy essence. A full body integrates all of the complexities at work into a very smooth palate. Great job!
