A - Dark brown pour with cream colored lacing.

S - Dark chocolate, delicate maple aroma, cocoa, and cinnamon heat in the nose.

T - Chocolate, light char, bourbon, cinnamon, maple, boozy, some oak. Nice bourbon and rye spiciness on the back

M - Medium body with just a tad bit of thinness for the style.

O - This is a fabulous and rock solid beer and no infection.

Can't speak to what this beer genuinely tastes like, since I was disappointed to find my bottle was a diacetyl mess.

"Fake butter" flavor was up front and overwhelming, little bit of cinnamon to follow, no discernible barrel under the butter taste. I would love to give this beer another go with a good bottle since I had such high hopes for it. At cellar temp it was like drinking Mrs. Butterworth's that had been cut with vegetable oil. Chilled the remainder of the bottle which did dull the butter flavor enough for me to give it another go, but something was definitely wrong with this particular bottle.

Fantastic barrel aged stout. Pours black as night with a persistent caramel head. Strong barrel character in the nose, with heavy notes of the maple. VERY sweet, but in a pleasant and warm, after-dinner sort of way. Surprisingly clean finish for being so sweet. Really excellent.
