4.23/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into an oversize wine glass

A- pours a dark, nearly opaque black color with a small fizzy khaki colored head that disappears rather quickly, leaving a few alcohol legs behind

S- toasted marshmallow mixed with milk chocolate bar & toasted coconut up front, spicy rye-like whisky notes with a hint of oak barrel, dried vanilla bean mixes with fresh whipping cream, caramel malt & burnt brown sugar, very nice

T- lots of malty dark fruit notes initially, with notes of fig, prune & even black cherry. Spicy whisky notes kick in with underlying tones of charred oak & toasted coconut. Chocolate malt sweetness mixes with brown sugar & caramel. The vanilla kicks in near the finish, although pretty subtle. A bit of booze as it closes with more whisky linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a warming, slightly sweet finish

O- a nice sipping beer that showcases the barrel aging. The vanilla is there, but not as prominent than it is in the aroma.
