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.

Only thing less than perfect is I want more maple to shine through. Stellar nonetheless.
