Poured into a long stemmed tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.
Pours a very dark black color with no light getting through the edges. An abyss of color. There is a nice dense half inch creamy tan head that forms then recedes down to a nice thing ring around the glass.
Aromas starts off with barrel sweetness. Notes of molasses and caramel are present with some nice notes of vanilla. Then there is some nice chocolatey fudge in the nose along with some great slight roasted coffee notes. Bakers chocolate sweetness can be perceived in the nose as well.
The flavor is exquisite. Notes of chocolatey fudgy syrup with some nice caramel and molasses barrel notes. Slight vanilla spice, mixed in with the cocoa notes. The beer is very rich and complex with delicious mix of chocolate, both dark and milk, and some nice roasted notes complimented by delicious barrel sweentess. Mouthfeel is nice and thick with some mild carbonation to keep it in balance.
