Poured into Good Nature snifter. Really excited about this one.

A: jet black with a lacy, one finger brown-copper color head.

S: maple, malt, roasted coffee. Hints of nuttiness and cocoa coming through.

T: amazing. Roasted malt, not as much maple coming through as I thought.

M: so creamy. Medium to heavy body. Very minimal carb, but pairs perfect with the body of the beer.

O: can't wait to crack the barrel aged version. One of the best stouts I've had in a while. Sean Lawson never disappoints.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some transparency. Lots of mocha head. Great retention. Really leggy on the swirl.

Smell - Roasty as hell. Some sweetness. A fair bit of maple. Chocolate. Chalky, almost.

Taste - Still extremely roasty. Stronger maple sweetness. Pretty sweet, in fact. Chalky, burnt roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee. Bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Sweet and bitter at the same time.

Overall - Really strong maple, but this stout needs it. Ridiculously roasty.
