What a surprise, had this at a share after trying the base (excellent as well) - the nilla is well showcased. Really nothing wrong with this beer, wish I had more than just one pour, definitely one of the highlights of an excellent share

Its 14%, riddled with barrel richness, subtle vanilla sweetness and its smoother than Patrick Stewart's head after a shave. Sure, its a beast of a beer and (if youre able to find it) it will molest your wallet a little but hot damn this is a good beer. MT has really stepped up their stouts in the last couple years and I cant wait to see what they release next. Nice work.

Looks like motor oil. Pitch black. Viscous, and sticky.

Big, boozy, in your face with the vanilla and undertones of bourbon, oak and toasted coconut.

Taste follows the nose with big boozy vanilla, whiskey and oak. Burnt caramel and chocolate in the aftertaste.

Absolutely awesome.

22 oz bomber into a snifter

Sludgy, crude oil-looking beverage, Modem Tones looks as rich and viscous as a brew can get. Decadent, dessert-like bouquet, with distinct notes of caramel and vanilla and oak. Vanilla-rush at the front of the sip, bourbon and caramel notes in tow. Suggestions of tobacco and oak work to dry the palate, as its weighty complexion leaves a chewy, milky coating across your palate.

Modem Tones is all that you want in a barrel-aged sipper - sweet and nuanced and appropriately boozy. I'd heard this was good but it's better than expected - hope they can find room for brews like this through the hazy IPA obsession.
