Poured from a 12.7oz bottle
A: Dark brown, thin dark tan head
S: Chocolate, biscuit. Nothing too complex or intense but certainly not bad
T: Chocolate, vanilla, oats, just a touch of maple in the background and a hint of oak. I wouldn't have guessed that this is a maple stout or a barrel aged stout, but the taste is delicious nonetheless.
M: Medium body, appropriately low carb.
O: Really enjoyably stout, tasted more like a non BA stout to me but one that is very well done.

The beer pours jet black with a thin, dark, tightly packed tan head that settles into a halo around the glass perimeter with minimal lacing (light residual oil). The nose is maple sugar forward, with a slight roastiness, and hint of biting ethanol and oak. Maple also predominates the beer's flavor profile, a slightly nutty brown sugar sweetness that has minimal chocolate or tannic bitterness, and a lingering maple flavor. The mouthfeel has little booze compared to the nose, a silky malt/maple caramel sweetness that doesn't become syrupy/chewy despite minimally carbonation, only a hint of wood, some vanilla, slightly bitter-sweet finish. This beer meets expectations in having a noticeable maple presence on top of a full bodied barrel-aged stout.

Reviewed from notes.
A- Pours a thick black with a half-finger of dark tan head. It leaves a minimal amount of lacing.
S- The aroma is a bit sweet and metallic when cold. A good bit of dark roasted malt and dark chocolate. Some oak tannins and a touch of tartness. A hint of maple on the end.
T- The flavor is a lot of the same. A whole lot of oak, the same metallic notes from the nose, and a touch of tartness. The chocolate and maple are there, but a bit muted. It's still quite tasty.
M- The mouth feel is medium, with limited carbonation, and a dry/vinous finish.
O- This is a very solid imperial stout, but it is a bit disappointing considering what I was expecting from Lawson's.
