2014 vintage

Pours completely black with an approximately 1 finger mocha colored head. The latter dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is primarily oak and vanilla. The taste follows on from the nose being primarily the notes of the barrel - oak and vanilla. Some chocolate comes through as well. Mouthfeel is creamy, albeit a bit on the thin side. Carbonation seems suitable. Seems pretty much all barrel for the most part so a bit one note in this regard. Decent offering but nothing remarkable.

Pours a velvety midnight black with single finger of lathery khaki foam that dissipates rather quickly, but clings for a while.

Roasted malts, rye, chocolate, and dark fruits.

Tons of roasted malt flavor, chocolate, coffee, and whiskey.

Heavy-bodied, light-medium carbonation, bitter, chewy, and very smooth.

Overall, I was incredibly surprised at how great this brew is. Fantastic job Spiteful!
