look: 2 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: pours black with barely any head that completely vanishes with no lacing.

S: lots of caramel, vanilla, oak, and whiskey aromas. Some sweet maple and birch-like aromas come through as well.

T: lots of whiskey, caramel, oak, and some vanilla. Some roasted malts mixed in as well along with a slight alcohol burn and a touch of maple. Surprisingly smooth.

M: medium body with low carbonation, this beer could benefit from a thicker body.

O: a pretty good beer. Fairly simple, but smooth, tasty, and smells great.
