First and foremost a big thanks to roon for sending me this bottle via his LIF.

12oz Bottle poured into a Bourbon County snifter. Poured along-side a 2012 Barrel Aged Dark Horse Plead the 5th and a 2013 KBS as part of a side-by-side tasting.

Appearance: Dark, reddish, brown almost black with a small 1/4" head bubbling up. The head recedes to a thin cap but leaves a heavy, frothy, tan ring. This beer looks viscous and leaves some very nice sticky lacing.

Smell: Sweet maple front and center, I've never had this much maple in an beer I've smelled, it towers over both the bourbon and chocolate that you can sense underneath. Amazing nose on this beer.

Taste: There are a lot of flavors to pick out of this one with oak, vanilla, whiskey, chocolate, and coffee standing out and having each element wrapped in a blanket of maple. As the beer warms the flavor deepens but never loses balance, all of the flavors continue to stand out. There is a sweetness to this beer (with this much maple flavor it would be impossible for it not to have sweetness) but it is never overwhelming, it never verges on becoming "too much". I can't imagine a better tasting stout.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth and although sweet it never becomes cloying.

Overall: I am a fan of maple flavor in a stout; therefore, this was the best barrel aged stout I have had to date. Left me wanting nothing but more.

Twice I've had this beer, both times amid a sea of other world class beers, and both times none of those even came close.

A: pitch black
S: Coffee, Maple, Bourbon
T:Everything you'd expect. Super rich maple and coffee coalesce together on your tongue.
M; Super thick and creamy, and lasts and lasts...

Theres really not much else to say, this beer is perfect in every way.
