4.29/5  rDev +2.9%
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.

4.38/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

4.09/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours an intimidatingly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch brown head that retains a bit before soon becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a thin scraggly ring behind.

S- Strong scent of dark roast and booze with some chocolate and caramel notes. Also some slight coffee and molasses.

T- Intense dark roast comes on and displays nearly just as much sweetness as bitterness somehow. Some oak-like notes come in from the high alcohol and the roast lingers a while making this a slow sipper for sure.

M- Dry and syrupy with a burn in the back of the throat. Medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- This beer doesn't do a fantastic job of living up to its alcohol content but it gets the job done.

4.14/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin dark mocha colored head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of roasted and smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of dark malts along with some notes of roastiness. No maple syrup is detectable.
M: It feels full-bodied and quite rich on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a heavy beer but its thickness helps cover up the booze nd for the most part masks much of the 12.5% alcohol content.
