1/1/2012 in Atlanta near the end of Pappy New Year vol 2. Thanks ATLBeerdog for the bottle!
A. Glugs out a thick, molten brownie. No real head, what foam there is is quite dark.
S. Loads of maple, that odd woodsy, earthy, almost charred, ashy note. Smooth, heavy malt, dark and toasted, only a little sweet. Cigar notes. Molasses, cocoa. Hefty stuff.
T. Really not very sweet, heavy maple flavor without a lot of maple sweetness. Dense black malts, but not astringent or bitter. No hops. Mostly variations on blacker malts. Well attenuated, creamy, slightly boozy. Would be an excellent cigar beer, but by itself is less interesting.
M / O. Heavy and dense. Finish is gently roast-bitter and and boozy, with maple in the background. This isn't bad at all but also isn't really my gig. More sweetness or simply less dryness would help, and there is a slight "homebrew" tang to this that could go too. Not bad though. Give it a go if you like maple and drier, bigger stouts.

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
