4.8/5 rDev +0.8%
I wanted to try it at GTMW this past summer but it was gone within minutes of being tapped. Hand numbered and signed bottle, shared with friends.
Sexy as hell bottle, with a thick coat of metallic copper wax. As nice "glug, glug" as it pours. A nice pillowy mocha head rises and slowly dissipates. Black as night. A swirl of the glass leaves a dark trail that retreats at a crawl.
This was the most amazing smelling beer I've ever come across. Picture the best breakfast joint you've ever been to on a busy Saturday morning. The smell of fresh brewed coffee and maple syrup hitting hot pancakes permeates the air. Now bottle that idea and that is what it's like.
The taste follows the nose almost exactly, rich coffee, lightly sweet but intense maple with nice thick stout base.
The next morning my den still smelled of a pancake house.

4.65/5 rDev -2.3%
12oz waxed and capped bottle into a snifter. Shared by Josh! Reviewed from notes.
Pours pitch black with spotty lace, huge, oily legs, and almost no head. Decent.
Nose is just as advertized. Super robust chocolate, maple syrup, cocoa, fudge and coffee. Delicious!
Opens maple sweetness. Espresso and milk and dark chocolate in the middle with hints of plum, raisin, and other dried dark fruit throughout. Lactose at the end with a boozy, sweet, chocolate-y finish. Great balance, incredibly deep, and super robust. This is pretty incredible!
Full bodied with low carbonation. Slick, oily and rich in the mouth and goes down smooth and heavy. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. For the style and the flavors present here, this is very nearly perfect.
I've heard a lot about this beer and this brewery recently and after having a taste, I gotta say that I'm clamoring for more. The flavor profile here is at the same time so well balanced and so robust with a body that carries out the experience perfectly. You feel every bit of the ABV but you can't help but want more. A ridiculously good offering.
