Tie 8 On by Monday Night Brewing is a Mixed Style Beer (blend of barrel aged strong beers with vanilla beans), brewed by Monday Night Brewing and judged as BJCP Category 34B. 

This pitch black brew has a complex aroma profile, a combination of wood, vanilla and sweetness. These elements mask any esters and hops that might otherwise be present. Swirled, it appears viscous. The taste is quite sweet and rich, with more notes of vanilla and barrel. It is full bodied, very warm, and silky smooth. This is a particularly strong blend, but so dessert-like that it's hard to notice. An exceptional beer that would make for a delightful after-dinner tipple.
