LOOK: Fairly vigorous pour from the can into a clean snifter glass. Dark chocolatey brown; opaque but not cloudy. Almost no head at all -- just a collection of fine bubbles around the rim.

SMELL: Roasted malts and a little bit of maple. (Side note: if you drink it from the can, the metallic scents will overpower these otherwise robust aromas so be warned.)

TASTE: Maple is present but not overpowering. A roasted flavor. (Do yourself a favor and pour into a glass.) As it warms up, it gets some vaguely fruity notes (imparted by the yeast?) that set off the maple just a little bit more.

FEEL: Medium-bodied... so a little light for a stout.

Poured from the 16 oz can into a large tulip.
Pours a very dark brown, deep caramel color with one finger of head that dissipates leaving nice lacing.
Smells roasty with a good deal of sweetness on the nose.
Taste is similar, approachable and not over the top roast with some mellow sweetness from the maple.
Finish is ok, with the mouthfeel too thin and watery for me.
Overall, a nice beer but for a maple breakfast stout I'd like a thicker mouthfeel and perhaps more complexity on the palate.

A very well done breakfast stout, but I didn't get as much maple as I was hoping.
