COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This thick, rich ale was brewed with plenty of caramel and roasted malts, and subtly spiced with American Chinook and Willamette hops. It boasts flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with raisins and dried fruit soaked in sherry. We’ve accentuated the natural smokiness of the brew by adding a small amount of beechwood-smoked malt and aging the brew in an oak whiskey barrel, which also adds notes of oak and vanilla.

ajnepple (7205) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2017
On tap at Hops & Pie. Black appearance with a fluffy, light brown head and light lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt, roasted grain, mild espresso notes, light earthiness and a touch of whiskey barrel. Similar flavor, adding moderate sweetness and minimal to light bitterness. Medium to full body with a smooth finish. Hints of vanilla and caramel develop as it warms. Pretty tasty overall.

McKay’s Taphouse, Bellingham. Creamy light tan foam, thick jet black body. Cool earthy sip, oatmeal stout. Rich, thick, fruity. Julie says cough syrup, and as usual she is right on. Some alc burn at finish. Creamy finish, some harsh lactic or egg nog character. Alright.

3.5
fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA
Dark brown color, not much carbonation, small beige head. Mild aroma of dark caramel and light smoke. The mouthfeel is too flat, lack of carbonation; moderate chocolate flavor, medium sweetness, nutty touch; very light alcohol feeling in the end.
Nice, but nothing special.

3.1
mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2016
750mL bottle, pours black with a tiny beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, a touch of smoke, and dry cocoa. Flavour is well-rounded, with coffee, oak barrels and roast. Not getting much smoke and not any of the barrels really. Carbonation is too little, which leaves something to be desired and doesn’t bring out the flavours as much as possible. Decent, but underwhelming and deficient.
