Tap at Dexters. Opaque brown-black with a big beige head. Rich and creamy, the oak really works well with pungent lactic tones. Thick chocolate milkshake tones. Not much hop presence, the malts really shine. Sweet brown chocolate cacao nib aroma. Some rich molasses, bourbon vanilla, almost a woody edge. Unique, drinkable, well executed.

Draught. Pours a thick dark brown with a moderate head to it. Some woodiness to the nose, like it has been aged in oak. Smooth creamy feel to the beer, with roasting and woodiness to the flavor. Great find.
