Decent head production and excellent retention, especially for the style. Body is inky black.

Aroma is sweet and inviting: maple syrup, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, perhaps a bit of bacon and vanilla. The maple syrup is really the focus, to the extent that the barrel aging doesn't immediately stand out. When it does, rye whiskey and oak make a favorable impression.

Flavor is similar but just a touch less sweet - but still very sweet. Maple syrup and coffee accentuate a chocolate feel to a lighter roast malt base. Very low bitterness for the style. Barrel influence is very restrained until the back half or even third, where some warming and alcohol burn starts to come through, followed by oak and, finally, spicy rye whiskey. Lasting heat, and the aftertaste is where the bacon finally shows up, with occasional recurrences of maple syrup sweetness.

Full bodied, thick and creamy (vice chewy). Very pleasant heft to the high ABV without much heat before the back end.

This is about as fantastic a beer in this style as I've ever had, even better than the BBA version.
