Fantastic smell of vanilla, wood, whiskey, marshmallow. The flavor is hot, chocolate fudge, more oak and whiskey. Only small issue like most Cycle beers is a touch thin but overall a winner.

Black with a thin mocha head that dies quickly.

Nose is Tootsie Roll, Vanilla Coke, caramel, a hint of roastiness and light whiskey.

Taste is lighter on chocolate, with some prune and walnut. Oak opens up as it warms. It's light on the booze but still tastes like a Jack and Coke as opposed to a barrel-aged stout. Overall the flavor disappoints from the aromatic intro.

Feel starts out crisp, tangy and tingly, transitioning to a slick and thin fluidity mid palate. It's a little hot, but the thin, tingly body adds an odd cooling effect, leading into a waxy finish. So it's not too intense and as such is very drinkable.
