Very sweet-maple flavors up front with dark chocolate in the middle followed by lingering bourbon/oaky/vanilla/tobacco flavors.... Very nice after dinner sipper... could be split amongst a couple of people due to the concentrated sweetness...

Montrealbcr89, you light up my life.

Appearance. It's black and looked pretty thick as it poured out. Barely a skim of head, but a light brown collar formed and stayed the course.

Smell. Sweet chocolate syrup, maple, sweet boozy liqueur, a touch of coffee and sweet bourbon, a bit of toasted oaky coconut barrel wood.

Taste. Sweet maple, sweet chocolate syrup (quality shit, not the hershey's), light tannic woodyness and a touch of coffee, some decent booze but goes okay with the sweetness.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, low+ carbonation.

Overall. Very sweet ...which I heard but still wasn't expecting quite so much. Excellent desert beer and quite unique. So awesome to get the opportunity to try these rarities thanks to handsome beardos like the man, montrealbcr89.

This is an interesting beer in an interesting category. Basically a chocolate and maple bomb, supplemented by some decent bourbon heat but not as much bourbon flavor as I usually like. Oak comes out more. Milky and rich with toffee, caramel, and slight molasses flavor. Not much roast or coffee and slightly thin on the mouthfeel.

Hard to rate for me. Basically liquid chocolate bourbon maple candy. Very sweet but not as cloying to me as Chocolate Rain or Black Tuesday. Delicious in its own way but the sweetness and lack of bourbon and coffee/roast starts to take a toll. Gave half to my wife after an initial attempt at taking it to the face. IMO, far better than the Faystons I have had but not in the same realm as beers like Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and KBBS. Have not had Mornin Delight but doubt it approaches that either from the reviews. Definitely worth seeking out but definitely best split with others.
