Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Fairly dry palate. Dry wood dominates the otherwise smooth dark malt. Trace of vanilla. Dry finish with a little spice and minerals. Quite aggressively barrelled - US style!

Black color; medium sized head. Mild aroma of chocolate, vanilla, liquor, wood. Excellent flavor, it tastes like a chocolate filled with liquor, and vanilla, with a touch of liquorice; very rich; moderate sweetness; in the final there is some liquorice and tar, and very light malt sourness. Nice alcohol warmth.
Excellent beer, with a vibe.
