I had Fayston Maple Imperial Stout while sitting in front of the fire and looking up at the mountain at the pub at Mad River Glenn; great place to have a beer, and a good tap selection. As for the beer, the body was opaque and very dark brown. The head was a thin, solid-looking line that is dark brown in color. Retention and lacing are both OK.
The aroma has a little bit of sweet molasses in it, with toffee and caramel as well. A little bit of chocolate comes through, as well as roasted malts.
The maple is noticeable, but it certainly isn't extremely strong or overpowering. Fayston Maple does, however, provide a few nice maple notes and flavors of molasses. Caramel and toffee both make an appearance, as well as chocolate and black patent malt. A good bit of roasted malt comes through as well. The alcohol is well-hidden.
The mouthfeel is nice, with a full body and an average amount of carbonation.
Overall, Fayston Maple is a solid imperial stout that is certainly worth a shot if you can get your hands on it.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Full 16oz pour into a ProPig snifter today, 2/10/2014.
App- Pitch black, thick dark mocha head, about one finger worth with great retention. Very delicious looking head that sticks around for a long time, it's almost like it was on nitro. Not much lacing.
Smell- Deep and sweet, a bit sugary with some dark fruits and roasty undertones.
Flavour- Faint dark fruits, strong roast, a bit of charred malts, sugar sweetness that is certainly not dry at all. Very rich and robust with a slight charred, earthy but sweet finish.
Mouthfeel- Best aspect. Full bodied, thick and syrupy, creamy and resinous but not cloying at all. Very drinkable, no hint of the 10.1% ABV.
Overall- Great Imperial Stout, I came into it looking at it as a American IS and it delivered on that count. The maple syrup seems to make it sweeter in a less dry and certainly not cloying manner. It's a well-done, very thick imperial stout that impresses in that regard.
