If you get lost in the woods on a camping expedition, while maybe not the most useful, Deep Dark Woods by Triple Crossing (Richmond, Virginia) at least has a name that fits the situation. 

This beer starts begins with 16 months of time inside Bardstown, KY-based Bourbon barrels. The beer is conditioned on “second use” vanilla beans, which means the beans have been previously used. This helps them not be dominating in the final beer but still add a noticeable vanilla taste. The vanilla helps bring out the Counter Culture Coffee in the ale, again careful not to have one flavor dominate too much. 

Dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, devil’s food cake, and sweet bourbon gel together in this winter beer. At 12% ABV, it is still velvet-like and allows you to taste all of the subtle flavor nuances. 

Contrary to popular practice, Triple Crossing wants to stress that you can enjoy this beer NOW and do not need to put it in your cellar to age it to perfection.
