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.

This is a great beer very unique. First review using new ratings system.

A- Dark brown/black very very little head.

S- Cocoa, Maple, booze

T- Much like smell but with a touch of barrel and molasses?

MF- a touch like but drinks very well.

Overall a fantastic stout from HF and in general. Would drink this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a medium khaki head. Wispy surface. Thin collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Maple syrup. Vanilla. Oak. Pretty chocolatey. More bourbon before it gets fudgy.

Taste - Lots of maple syrup. Very sweet. Chocolate. Bourbon. More maple. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Very thick and very sweet, but worth the sugars. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Maple really helps this transcend other HF stouts.
