750ml corked & caged bottle into a couple of glasses. Rare batch 92. Bottle # 25/48. Black with a dark mocha head. Plenty of rich spotty lace and brown oils down the sides. Maple is heavy in the nose, along with chocolate, roast and alcohol, which is combining to give this a bit of a spicy tobacco character. The taste is sweet but not cloying, thanks to the overall roastiness of this. The flavors nicely compliment the spicy alcohol character that is here. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied but seems a tad thin. Probably from the aging but the benefit is that this is ridiculously easy drinking for the size. I mean RIDICULOUS. The maple addition really sweetens this up but the aggressive Stout flavors give it a balancing edge. I really like Lawson’s use of maple in these beers. Really gives it a distinct character. I’m looking forward to seeing how this base is put to use in the barrel-aged versions.

Tasted this at brewfest 2014. A nice beer that I wouldnt mind trying again as beerfest only gives you 4 oz glasses and the lines are kind of long at the Lawsons section. This may have been my favorite beer of the whole Beerfest session. Very subtle maple and real ly just a nice flavor. I usually prefer stouts in Winter but happy to have tasted this one even though it was July. May try to have again at the evening session later tonight.
Serving type: on-tap
