4.28/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pitch pitch midnight black. Large and very dense super dark brown head (almost as dark as the pour itself). Head fades away super slowly, with great retention. Decent spotty lacing. Extra points for the brutally dark body and head.

S: Sweet burnt maple and a lot of char from the roasted malt to back it up. Sharp bittersweet chocolate.

T: Lots of sweet chocolate syrup up front. Sweetness from the maple syrup maybe? Hints of char throughout. Brutal and powerful dark chocolate taste takes over in the middle and extends all the way through to the aftertaste. Slight coffee taste in the finish to go with all the dark chocolate, sorta like chocolate covered coffee beans. Mild compared to the chocolate however. Chalky baker's chocolate lingers forever between sips. Nice borderline dryness is a good departure from most 12.5%'s overpowering sweetness.

M: Big, heavy, thick, viscous. Leaves a charry sort of chalky lingering mouthfeel behind.

O: A pretty simple beer but well executed in the roasted malt department. I love my big stouts heavy and with lots of dark chocolate. This one does not disappoint. Huge huge bittersweet chocolate notes. Maple isn't really noticeable but there's just a touch to lend this beer a slight bit of complexity. A beer this roasty reminds me of a fresh expedition stout. Big, sharp roasted malt character. Delicious.

Pours a jet black with very little to no head. More like wisps of tan foam.

Smell is chocolate, vanilla, soy sauce and a hint of alcohol.

Taste is similar to the nose. Chocolate is up front with hints of vanilla, coffee and soy. There is a definite alcohol burn in the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasant.

Overall this is a nice beer but it is not what I was expecting. The maple aspect of the beer is totally missing for me.

22oz bottle split and poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a thick very black with a mahogany head. Leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Head remains as a thin film throughout the glass.

S: Roasted malts blended with coffee and chocolate. A bit of smokiness to it. Sweet maple syrup as the bottle indicates. A touch of booze in there hints at things to come.

T: Starts off as a full bodied wholesome stout with a strong roastiness. After swallowing dark fruits, tobacco, alcohol, coffee and carmel come through.

M: Has low carbonation and a full body. I like the creamy mouthfeel that compliments the bold flavors. Some stickiness comes through from the sweetness.

Overall maple syrup makes a great compliment to the strong stout flavor. Great looking bottle made this an easy sell. Give it a shot if you're into bold and complex beers.

Great carbonation. Sneaky boozey. Balanced sweetness from honey. Dry on back end.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. 2013 bottle, properly cellared. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass, with only a few patches of brown foam and a tiny ring around the glass. Aroma of toasted, charred malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and light molasses. Flavor is smoky toasted dark malt, high cacao chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Finishes with smoke and char, vanilla, chocolate and light oak and grassy hop bitterness. Nice nearly syrupy creamy body with decent carbonation considering the lack of head on pouring. A really nice, dark, smoky, toasty stout with good light chocolate and coffee notes and some woody barrel flavors, although I'm not sure this was barrelled. High ABV well covered by quite rich taste. A very enjoyable deep, dark stout.
