5/5  rDev +25%

Appearance - Very dark, some brown colored head made an appearance

Smell - Maple bourbon chocolate covered raisins (if such a thing existed) simply divine.

Taste - Vanilla and sweet bourbon (I believe this bottle is a little more than a year old) If it was hot when it came out, this has calmed nicely. The maple comes through on the finish along with those chocolate covered raisin flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium viscosity, low carbonation. Works for me.

Overall - I just love it. The addition of the real maple syrup takes this beer to great heights. I'm a little surprised it's only at an 89 rating as I type this, this stacks up with just about any top notch BBA stout i've had. If I get another chance to try this I won't hesitate.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours black, deep dark black, with a small mocha colored head, about a quarter inch, and very little lacing.

Smells like maple, bourbon, chocolate, and roasted malt.

This is a fairly subtle BA job here, a little bit of bourbon flavor, not overpowering at all, with a good amount of vanilla, chocolate, and maple of course. The maple lends some sweetness to the beer, but it's not overpowering. Luckily does not become cloying.

Medium bodied, slightly thin for the style, but I guess it is a porter, after all. Creamy, smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Low carbonation, and very drinkable.

Another great BA beer from Dark Horse. The BA'ing is not quite as powerful as some of their other creations, namely BAPt5, but this is still very tasty.
