Mini oak barrel at Clusterfork. Pours a jet black with no head. Aroma is cinnamon chocolate milk and some odd mulling spices. Taste is cinnamon chewing gum forward with some boozy bourbon chocolate milk. The cinnamon doesn’t detract from the beer but I’m not sure how much it adds.

The pour is deep dark black with no head. The nose is like a chai latte. big spice bomb, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate milk, plums and raisins. The taste is high sweet and very low bitter. Balance is great. The texture is creamy and smooth with a heavy body and a long finish. Really enjoyed it.
