Bottle into a wine glass. A stout brewed with lactose, then aged with coffee, vanilla beans and Canadian maple wood veneers. After brewing, the veneers were added to Skatepark of Tampa's 20 year anniversary decks.
Thick, creamy black. Inky. One inch of dark, cinnamon-colored head recedes after a time to a silky top layer.
Very sweet nose. Pancakes bathed in maple syrup, dark chocolate, sweet milk. Chocolate chip pancakes drenched in maple syrup.
A little more tangy dark fruits in the flavor -- prunes, figs. Bitter dark chocolate, sweet toasted wood, a hint of smokiness in the back. The swallow adds sweet lactose that smooths things out. Lingering bitter coffee.
A little thinner than the appearance suggested, but still a solid medium body. Creamy, medium body, mild carbonation, a touch of fizz. Clean finish, just a little hop bitterness, almost no alcohol content.
Fantastic. Very tasty, nice and complex. And a good cause, too! Skate on, homies.

A - Black with some brown around the edges when held up to the light
S - Chocolate and Vanilla bomb. It's like a liquid s'more. A nice roasty aroma and sweetness.
T - Not as smooth on the taste. Slightly overly bitter with the coffee. A nice vanilla kick on the back though.
M - Not as thick as anticipated, but still coats your mouth.
O - Sweet smelling and tasting with lots of roast and vanilla. Nicely done.
