Generously shared by several strangers at DLD '13. Thanks, generous strangers!
Pours a thick black with a small mocha head.
Smell is sweet chocolate, coffee, and TONS of maple. A bit of vanilla, pancake-y smell. it's like closing your eyes and smelling your pancake breakfast.
Taste seems pretty balanced initially, with the same sweet malts, coffee, maple, and chocolate coming through. But then the maple really takes over. It lasts and lasts and lasts.
Mouthfeel is thick, chewy, smooth, with light carbonation.
Wow. This beer really lived up to the hype for me. Definitely seek this out.

Was fortunate enough to receive the entire set from cparles a while back. We did this one, Assassin and KBBS in that order. Cheers!
From a 12oz bottle into a snifter
Bottle 4 of 3000
APPEARANCE: Pours out black and thick, yielding a smell, medium looking, creamy, dark mocha colored head with great retention. Jet black body with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a swirly wisp and bubbly ring. A faint wisp and ring remain leaving some falling dots of lacing down the glass. Thick black body and a great head, and just a touch more lacing would give it a perfect score.
SMELL: Lots of maple, caramel, roasted coffee, sweet vanilla cream and loads of dark chocolate on the nose. Very bold and well put together, with the adjuncts working wonderfully well with the base stout. Decadent.
TASTE: Lots of maple and coffee up front, with some nice dark chocolate from the base beer. Very flavorful through the middle with a big, bold and lingering aftertaste of roasted coffee, sweet maple syrup, vanilla, caramel and butterscotch, with a dose of bitter dark chocolate providing balance. Lots of sweet maple syrup and other sweet flavors with bitter coffee and chocolate lingering on the palate. Excellent.
PALATE: Fuller body with medium levels of carbonation. Very creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly sticky on the palate. A light burn at the swallow and some heat lingers, but well measured. Great feel.
OVERALL: Well, here's one case where the rumors are actually true. KBBS is another case, actually. This is one outstanding adjunct stout, with flavor and aroma all over the place all working in perfect harmony. Loved every drop of this. The look was great and the feel big, thick, creamy and full, making this just a wonderful creation overall. Too bad so little of this was made, as I'd love to drink it by the bucket full. This one is just as good as everyone says it is. Thanks for the brews cparles. Morning Delight deserves every single piece of praise it receives.
