3.88/5 rDev -1.5%
Pours an opaque black with a lingering frothy cappuccino head.
Nutty, toasted malt, coffee grounds, and vanilla form the initial aroma. Roast malt and toasted oak emerge as it warms.
Flavor has a deeply roasted malt backbone throughout, with lightly bitter coffee and notes of char emerging in the finish, accompanied by oak. Hints of dark cherries hit early, adding complexity. Vanilla is fairly subtle, but this has aged a year.
Body is moderate, with modest carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Fairly complex beer, with a nice tart and char balance. It's not overly roasted, and the toasted oak complements well.
