750 mL winter 2011/2012 bottle shared with friends. Thanks Ashley!!

Pours a syrupy dark chocolate brown with a dark tan head. Intense malty aroma, roasty and slightly smokey, chocolate and molasses. Fairly standard for a nice stout, before a slightly fruity maple presence jumps out in the finish. Flavor is similar, served initially too cold the maple is difficult to find, but as this warms a silky bittersweet dark chocolate and chewy maple sap flavor appears and is particularly strong long into the finish. Thicker side of medium body with light carbonation throughout. Others were a little disappointed by the subtlety of the maple in this, but I thought it pushed a good stout over the top to great.

Reviewing from notes. I had this beer at the Rosso e Marrone release from an unknown generous soul who brought it for tasting. On that cold (and I mean damn cold) release day, this big Imperial Stout warmed my bones. I believe I had this on my fourth trip to the tasting table (had to keep going back to the car to get warmed up).

A: Pours black. Very black. Poured from the bottle a little thick, syrupy and muddy. The head is very nice and dark mocha brown. The head was creamy and stuck around pretty good.

S: Maple deliciousness. Good maple, like Grade A maple smothering your pancakes. Very sweet with maple, brown sugar, candy butterscotch, coffee, and roasted toffee.

T: Delicious. Perhaps a dessert beer, but I could have this every day. The roast really complemented the sweet maple. This beer is rather sweet, but it is by no means cloying. Nice and thick with roasted coffee, maple, brown sugar, and toffee.

Overall, an amazing Imperial Stout and one of the best, if not the best, use of maple I have tasted.
