3.13/5  rDev -20.4%

375ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance is super dark with a fluffy khaki head. Looks good…real good.

Smell is over-the-top roast and barrel; maybe some bitter chocolate; and lots of booze. Astringent and bitter. Tart cherries.

Taste is burnt, roasted oak offset slightly by dark fruit; there is some malt to this one, but no real maple flavor. Baker's chocolate with tart fruit.

Mouthfeel was pretty good: much thicker and more substantial than a typical porter.

Overall = meh. Would've liked to taste more maple. Was hoping for something like Panther Cub that's been aged in bourbon barrels, but that's a problem flowing from my expectations rather than this beer.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a hint of transparency. Small khaki head with lots of surface wisps.

Smell - Maple is present. Sweet. Roasty and really oaky. Ashy.

Taste - Sweet maple. Really roasty. Coffee. Smokey and ashy. Lots of burnt malt. Minimal bourbon, if any.

Mouthfeel - Harsh. Oaky. Burnt. Well carbonated.

Overall - What a great concept, but not a good beer.

Picked up a 375ML bottle in a trade with a friend in Maryland - poured into a crystal tumbler.

Pours black as midnight with extreme viscosity, fatty tan head with ridiculous retention, lacing coats my glass from start to finish. Wow - tons of barrel on the nose...Single Barrel Jack stylie - no joke - so bomb! Roasted malt, burnt raisins, molasses, dry oak, sweet boozy goodness. Tastes like the nose insinuates - so much barrel, my god this shit is tasty! Fresh brewed espresso, vermont style maple syrup, toasted grains and all that barrel goodness that lingers for days...

Already blown away by the Golden Sap, I was curious to see how the Black Sap compared - a roasty/smoky counterpart to it's blonde brother or sister if you prefer, this one did not disappoint, and we found even more fun barrel characteristics compared to the Golden. So bomb!

Seek and destroy!
