A really well rounded brew. Im not really a hazelnut person and I felt the notes were really muted. Each of the components comes and goes in small doses with the vanilla almost yielding a subtle kahlua thing. All the adjuncts are of high quality. Overall the alcohol bite was low and for this being young I can only imagine good things here on out. Barrel presence is nice moderate mouthfeel.

650ml bottle, snifter glass. Dark black body, opaque, one finger mocha head, good retention, no lacing. Smell is big vanilla ice cream, whiskey aroma, slight boozy heat, sweet maple throughout, mild nuttiness that isn't too sweet. Good balance, big thick vanilla sweetness. Flavour follows, sweet vanilla and maple syrup sweetness, whiskey, vanillin, light brown sugar, big chocolate fudge, a mild bit of nutty hazelnut. Mouthfeel is full bodied, thick and creamy, fudgy with a nice sweetness from the chocolate, vanilla and maple. Lighter but still appropriate carbonation for the style.
