A-pitch black with a nice sticky brown head
S-intense scent of old wood and vanilla. Unique and musty. Deep underlying aroma of cocoa.
T-ooo comes in with a wonderful flavor of maple wood chips, chocolate, and vanilla. It's a wonderful flavor. The wood is the major aspect here in and out. This is a unique flavor. Very smooth with out any off flavors.
M-creamy medium carbonation with a creamy finish
O-it's very thick and very sweet, the only aspects keeping this from being a truly wonderful drinker. It's difficult to try an imperial stout that is truly unique and this accomplishes that! As much as I love it, the whole bottle is too much for one person. I recommend sharing!

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.
