Firkin at Sugar Maple. The beer pours to a clear dark mahogany body with a creamy tan head. Awesome lacing. Aromas of sweet vanilla candy with chocolate and sweetened condensed milk brownies. Flavor is sweet balanced vanilla and chocolate with brown sugar and molasses. Layers of complexity. The palate is silken and super easy drinking. Goes down "too easy".

cask. I am not a huge fan of Old Chub but this one is a completely different beast. The vanilla just sings and the mouthfeel is decadent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011-12-03. Very dark brown body with a small beige head and lace. 3+ Very sweet malt aroma, strong vanilla character throughout 7+ Similar flavour is sweetly malty with a good amount of vanilla. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ The second half of the glass is much less enticing than the first as the vanilla becomes a bit much, but it is pretty nice overall. Quite liked it but not sure if it would score as highly on a second visit. Cask at Goodbar, Buffalo

Vanilla, really rich malt, a bit of alcohol. Huge sweet malt. Stunning. Flavor is sweet caramel & malt, vanilla, dark honey, toffee. Fucking stunning. The only problem is that it’s too sweet. Still, amazing.
