Pours a thick oily black with mild brown head. Super viscous with dark brown collar of head. The nose is heavy on coffee with notes of vanilla and maple. The coffee brings on a smokey character with heavy barrel char. The maple opens up more as it warms and melds beautifully with the coffee and cocoa. Super rich and decadent. Mouthfeel is perfect, silky and smooth. Overall, this beer is fantastic. Is it worth what it takes to get it? Probably not. Is it delicious? Hell yes. Glad to have gotten to try this!

Look- Sweet Dark nectar that is begging to be placed into your mouth.

Smell- Exactly what Jesus's breakfast smells like every morning.

Taste- I reached my tongue to the bottom of the bottle on this one.

Feel- Pure bliss on your tongue. When it hits your stomach you are on cloud 69.

Overall- I absolutely LOVE this beer. But what people want and give up for it is RETARDED! No 12oz/22oz/750mL beer should ever be worth so much.

Reviewed both vintages, both shortly after their respective taproom release. All I can say is this is the BEST beer I've ever had. What a treat.

What can I say? Bar none the best beer I've ever had and absolutely worth the hype. 2014 gold wax poured into an open mouth wine glass.

Smell- holy molasses batman.

Taste- starts off with coffee dominance and some chocolate and then the molasses hits you, truly what makes this beer worth the chase

Mouthfeel- not sure how toppling Goliath does it, but both this and assassin are by far the best mouthfeel in a beer I've had. Coats your mouth like a smoothie, making this beer truly elite.

Overall- perfect. For sure worth a 5/5 rating.

Wow is all I have to say. Whatever it takes to get this beer do it, and don't think about it again. Opened a gold wax in the company of a few good men, basically what we call a normal Tuesday, whale slaying, gold wax from a Toppling Goliath snifter. The beer gave off the aromas of sweet brownies dipped in coffee, if that's a thing. Just understand that it was amazing, even before it touched my lips. As the beer traveled out of the glass into my mouth I began to levitate into the air, and fireworks were going off around me. Suddenly I realized I was actually hovering over my own self, watching myself drink this wonderful concoction. I recently had fresh CBS on tap, and thought that might be the pinnacle for my beer drinking of 2015, I was very wrong, that beer doesn't belong in the same sentence with KBBS. This is about as close to perfection in a beer that I believe is possible, especially for anyone who loves stouts. This is a must drink, must seek out beer, if only it was in a larger format.

So ok, on the real, I gave up a ton for a couple of these bottles. And leading up to having it w some legendary DFW BA's I thought I wouldn't like it. I mean c'mon man, there's no way it could live up to the hype.man I've never been so beechwood aged wrong in my life.

My boy Adam was being swooped away by a double unicorn led chariot. What do I mean? It was amazing. Truly a trancendent stout. It was flat out the greatest stout ever made in America. And wel I haven't tried everyone, but I've tried everyone enough from the list.

The smell, taste, aftertaste, feel, and dat maple dho, just perfection incarnated. Wasn't hot for fairly fresh either, can't wait to try the next couple little bit down the line.
