Hazelnut and vanilla combine for chocolate syrup here. Not getting much nuttiness or Maple but sticky mouthfeel with very light heat is nice
I'm a huge believer in continuing to try new breweries, so Speciation has been on the radar for awhile. Will be saving the 750s to share but this is really a unique brew w/ the Scotch barrel - so much much leather and a touch of smoke in the finish
Impressive - Vanilla bomb on the nose while taste really showcases the barrel and a medium level of vanilla flavor. Drinks with basically no heat / booze. FO 19 in a can imo - well done MT!Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 13) badge! Earned the Beyond a Shadow of a Stout (Level 14) badge!
