Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 11-08-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We brew this Wee Heavy with Fennugreek, for a distinct maple character, and vanilla bean. The we aged it in Buffalo Trace barrels for nine months. The beer that came out of the barres is a beautiful composition of maple, oak, caramel, vanilla, bourbon and perfectly burnt sugar. Wonderful now but also will stand up to a Rip Van Winkle style nap in you temperature controlled area of choice.

A dark shade of brown with a hint of gray to it. Forms just the faintest bit of creamy head that just dissipates as quickly as it forms. Appears flat. Between the gray-brown color, this isn't the prettiest of beers.
Aroma on the other hand is quite pleasant: Strong scent of vanilla, followed up by oak, dark malts, molasses, and raisin. Tastes offers similar qualities, but is much punchier. Starts off with a strong bourbon character with notes of sweet toffee, floral vanilla, dark malts and touch of woodsiness (presumably from the fenugreek).
Full bodied - almost syrupy - with lower carbonation levels. Very mild bitterness, though there is a bit of an astringency on the back end.
An impressive BA beer. Very nice.
