COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thin tan lacing sits atop the blackness of the glass. There is a perfect clarity, if only it was visable through the darkness. The aroma holds notes of oak, vanilla, rye, and alcohol. The beer has been aged on oak from Templeton Rye for five months.

Made with Templeton Rye whiskey and plenty of roast and wheat malts and fermented with weizen yeast, this beer is simply impressive. First off it is utterly black. There is just a hint of a creamy copper head. The nose is rich and playful, with a roast aroma that tickles the nose. The whiskey comes through quite well: malt, rye, and some notes of alcohols. There is also a serious banana and clove character. A taste is heaven. It is all too easy to overdo it on a whiskey addition, ruining the beer. Here the Templeton is perfectly balanced with the other flavors. The roast comes through first, followed quickly by the rye. There is a bit of astringent bitterness. This beer is thick and chewy. It is delicious. A tour de force.

Draft at Millstream Beer & Chocolate tasting event. Poured an opaque black color with a tan head. Boozy aroma of whiskey, vanilla, raisin, and milk chocolate. Full bodied and semi-sweet with alcohol warmth and some bitterness at the end. Whiskey dominated the flavor without completely overwhelming the base beer flavors. I tasted vanilla, caramel, subdued roasty malt beneath the whiskey.
