Huge thanks to egrace84 for the bottle share! Thanks elliot!
poured into tulip glass.
reviewwed from notes taken 1/8/13.
Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of light to medium brown bodied beer.
Smell: Coffee, brown sugar, maple oatmeal.
Taste: Coffee and dark chocolates. Lite oak note. Roasty almost a char note from the coffee. Really sweet vanilla aftertaste that has a touch of artificial flavor to it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with low end of moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A beer milkshake. Not a hint of booze.
Overall: I really enjoy the nose and mouthfeel of this beer. CCB does a great job with dark beers, but the vanilla comes accross as artificial which is my biggest draw back of this beer.
Serving type: bottle

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.
