Big thanks to my best pal, OlieIPA for opening this gem on his 25th birthday!
Pours a thick black body with a light golden copper head. Good foamy lacing clings to the side of the glass.
The nose is thick with vanilla, oak, sugar, and alcohol. I feel like I could take a big bite out of it.
The malt hits first and slowly fades into a flurry of sweet, soft vanilla. Light hints of fruit and some complexity along with a touch of spice.
The mouth-feel is perfect. Soft yet structured.
I've been waiting for this beer for a long time and it sure doesn't
dissapoint. The barrel may be a little overwhelming here but it's still a delicious beer that I am lucky to try.
Thanks Olie! And happy birthday, dude!
