Reviewed from notes

Black pour with a finger of head. Aroma is some nice toffee and oak from the barrel aging on top of a hoppy, sweet base.

The flavor is huge on vanilla from start to finish. Surely a byproduct of the barrel aging. Underneath is a bit of dry cocoa and some citrus hoppiness. Fairly sweet but not cloying.

The body is medium and carbonation has a bit of a sting. Overall, I am definitely impressed by this beer. The vanilla aspect is especially noteworthy.
