4.34/5 rDev -0.7%
Pours black. More so than stouts that are bigger, zero light even at the edges. Fairly thick tan head. Leaves a delightful mocha lacing around the snifter.
Smells like sweet coffee. Vanilla in there. Some sweet woody notes. A lot like a cold press coffee.
Fresh and slightly oily coffee bean and all sorts of sweet flavors. Maple woody notes. Not sure if I quite get maple syrup however. Really a tasty beer.
Full creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by Jaap. Thanks Jeff!
A-Pours black with a beautiful dark brown head. A quick swirl leaves sticky brown bubbles on the side of my glass.
S- Coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Pretty sweet and not very roasty.
T- Creamy, smooth chocolate milkshake. Very sweet with coffee, vanilla and subtle maple notes. Super tasty.
M- Mouthfeel is medium to full body, very creamy with lingering espresso on the tongue. NIce carbonation too.
O- Sooo drinkable for a big stout .Cigar city has this stout thing down. Every one ive tried to date has been fantastic and this one is no different.

750ml bottle poured into HF stemmed glass. Thanks Don for sharing this.
A- Pours a jet black with about a quarter finger of mocha brown head that recedes at a moderate pace leaving some spotty lacing.
S- Chocolate, maple, vanilla, espresso. Very aromatic and lots of chocolate.
T- Creamy chocolate, roasted espresso beans, finishes with maple, vanilla and sweet smooth milk chocolate that has an extremely nice lingering milk chocolate aftertaste. Overall lots of chocolate with a nice maple balance.
M- Very smooth and creamy, nice carbonation, a little bit on the thicker side, extremely easy to drink.
O- This was a fantastic imperial stout from CCB. The combination of maple and chocolate paired very well together and worked to exactly how CCB wanted it to in making a beer that would taste as much as chocolate chip pancakes as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this beer and I would love to have it again. If you like chocolate you will definitely like this beer and I highly recommend checking it out.

Huge thanks to egrace84 for the bottle share! Thanks elliot!
poured into tulip glass.
reviewwed from notes taken 1/8/13.
Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of light to medium brown bodied beer.
Smell: Coffee, brown sugar, maple oatmeal.
Taste: Coffee and dark chocolates. Lite oak note. Roasty almost a char note from the coffee. Really sweet vanilla aftertaste that has a touch of artificial flavor to it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with low end of moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A beer milkshake. Not a hint of booze.
Overall: I really enjoy the nose and mouthfeel of this beer. CCB does a great job with dark beers, but the vanilla comes accross as artificial which is my biggest draw back of this beer.
