Serving: 750ml bottle poured in snifter.

I was extremely pleased by the deep rich flavor of this brew. I accompanied it with some imported dark chocolate which really complemented the brew.
It pours a nice rich tan head with strong lacing. Multiple flavors abound---delicious…
Mellow chocolate flavor upfront that lasts to the finish. Half way through a tremendous roasted, charred flavor is integrated. Finishes with a distinct maple, sugared sweetness...not overpowering in any way. Roasted malt character with a considerable chocolate malt backbone. There is noticeable maple sweetness in the background. Rich and roasty with a delicate sweetness.

I will add more of these to my cellar aging quiver... yum... should age nicely.

While there are not truly hints of maple syrup in the aroma or taste, the beer in the front hints of roasted malt, big fudgey chocolate, and a medium plus sweetness. There's a wonderful roasted flavor throughout and cleans up nicely on the end.

This is a full flavored imperial stout and truly one of the best.

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.
