An amazing beer with a great story that probably deserves to be in the top 10 if not, top 20.
A - Typical black. Very thin, dark tan head. Nothing tricky, but you can tell by looking at it that it is an imperial stout.
S - Honestly my favorite thing about this beer is the smell. The thick sugary, roasted malts. The maple syrup is apparent. A hint of alcohol in the wiff.
T - Syrup, thick roasted malts. Not near as much coffee as the original bkfst stout and not near as much alcohol burn as the Kentucky stout. This was a well balanced and well executed taste that is blended to perfection.
M - I do wish there was a touch more carbonation that was similar to Dark Lord, but this is my only minor complaint.
D - More please. I was only able to get 8 oz, but I would love for them to start bottling this.

Honored to try the last batch ever of this fantastic beer. This is the 2011 version and according to the founders rep here, is the last of this beer. This is one of the finest beers that I have ever had. As close to a perfect drink as you can get. It tastes like breakfast stout with a subtle maple taste. Wow!
