Got this one from scottg, shared with naproxen. We actually picked up another one from Sean today that we plan on aging, mmmhmmm :)

750 ml cork and caged bottle, #37 of 92. Poured into a tulip. OMG I should have totally traded this for Black Tuesday seeing it's so rare and all...maybeno

Pours a thick, gooey, motor oil black with a mud brown two finger head that leaves a spotty lace on the side of the glass. Aroma is deep and rich with earthy hops, big roasted barley and malts, and a touch of maple syrup. Dark chocolate and charred grains with not a single bit of booze in the nose, impressive. Taste is very similar with the big roasted flavors. Smokey malts, sweet Baker's chocolate, and some gritty hops. Some syrup midway, but not a whole lot...I was actually hoping for more. Aftertaste lingers forever with charcoal, hot cocoa, and wood. Once again, the big 10% abv is hidden on the tongue like it was in the nose. Big, rich, and chewy body with a slightly stronger carbonation than I like for the style. This is a perfect beer for the cold Northeast winter we've seen in the past couple of weeks, very warming and chewy. Anoter quality brew from Sean, reeeeally looking forward to seeing what some age will do to our other bottle. Delicious beer minus the hype, gotta love it.

Tasted this at brewfest 2014. A nice beer that I wouldnt mind trying again as beerfest only gives you 4 oz glasses and the lines are kind of long at the Lawsons section. This may have been my favorite beer of the whole Beerfest session. Very subtle maple and real ly just a nice flavor. I usually prefer stouts in Winter but happy to have tasted this one even though it was July. May try to have again at the evening session later tonight.

Serving type: on-tap
