Deliciously thick and dark. This floats out of the can as thick as they come. This pours like chocolate syrup and as it warms the maple becomes more pronounced and intoxicating, and the coffee notes ride the wave. I've never tasted cassia bark but after tasting this wicked concoction, I wouldn't mind building a tree house in a Cassia tree! The 12 ABV comes through sensibly but does not smack you in the face. This is a perfect beer to be drinking exactly one week from Samhaim when the spirit portals open and the magic and mysteries of the night skies collide. I'll be searching for another one of these. Great collaboration between The Seed and Timber Ales Happy Halloween!

Can. No hyperbole. This poured thicker and blacker than any beer I remember encountering. Uncomfortably thiqqq. Like pen ink. Stupidly viscous. The head is dark as hell, too. Intimidating. Aroma is a nuke of darkness. Cinnamon is very prevalent. Burnt caramel. Dark roast coffee and Hershey's™ syrup. Flavor is decadent. This beer is scary. I have never felt a beer so oily, rich, and dense. I am honestly a bit worried about drinking it. Woah, too metal for me.

A - Nice dark, dark brown pour with thin (but dense) burnt toffee lacing.

S - Bold nose with dark roasted malt, coffee, char, and maple syrup.

T - Taste is deep and complex with layers of flavor: char and light smoke, delicate black licorice, light coffee roast, sweet maple syrup, cinnamon, and ends with a smoky licorice roasted malt finish. Finishes balanced and not one flavor overpowers the other, the balance is perfect.

M - Thick and syrupy in texture with a tad bit of dryness on the very back of the tongue while the rest of the mouth remains wet with some slight coagulation on the palate. For a big ABV beer, there is no warming on the way down - impressive.

O - This beer is just impeccable. I'm going back for more - highly recommended.

16oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace. It smelled of maple, molasses, dark chocolate and toffee. Sweet chocolate and maple taste with toffee, caramel and subtle coffee notes.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a coal black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A sweet and alluring aroma of coffee, chocolate, maple syrup, spices, and malt.

T: Tasted of a good amount of malt (present throughout, but not a big factor), lots of coffee (warming and quite prominent), some woody notes (a subtle quality), a good shot of chocolate (not overpowering, but definitely present), a bit of cinnamon, and a decent amount of maple syrup (quite sweet). This is a complex, big, and excellent flavor.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a super smooth finish. Full-bodied.

O: An incredibly well made, easy to like stout. Drinkable.
