Viscous almost gloppy black out of the bottle, it forms a thin dark tan film that quickly settles to a thin chain.

Significant barrel spice and heat are right up front before the thick body envelopes the palate with maple, coconut, and mocha brownies. The finish actually cleans up and even becomes somewhat crisp to a semi-dry, tingly and only slightly sticky lip smacking swallow.

The barrel is significant here. Mature, spicy, peppery, and lightly charred with a caramel and even spiced rum character to it. This compliments the maple well, while tempering the decadence of the mocha, vanilla and coconut, which is like a swirling creme anglaise throughout.

On tap at wakefest.

This is a straight up maple bomb. Coffee shows a lot with a nice amount of coconut. Full bodied and fudgy. A lot of sweetness, but not cloying. Some vanilla mixed in. Really awesome!

Thanks to my fellow beer buddy for bringing this beast to a tasting... what a treat!
Rich beyond belief, with insane maple syrup, coconut, and spicy rye. The coffee helps with the sweetness, but could probably use a bit more coffee to balance things out. But this beer isn't about balance, but about decadence.... a one of a kind and reminds me of the richness of VBDL
