A: Pour is a dark hazelnut brown with visible lacing on the edges, sticking for a few minutes then dissipating.

S: Aroma of nutty brown ale, oatmeal, and a faint maple

T: Light and drinkable stout, not too bold, not too sweet, not too overdone. Maple is subtle and I would imagine not made with a ton of maple syrup, but just enough to leave the nutty flavor that maple will leave in a stout after fermentation.

M: Light , medium carbonation level and smooth for the abv that is present.

O: Overall this is a very drinkable stout. Its not overly done and I am sure could be a regular if this was readily available in my area. Glad to have tried this one.

Best stout ive ever had. Notes of coffee, maple, oats, almost a slight smokiness to it. Just a touch of sweetbfrom the maple, dryness from the oats and hops. Slight bitter from the coffee. Andfinished with a moderate malty goodness. Extremely well balanced. And now on nitro.

Mouth feel really killed it for me, way too thin.

I'm always skeptical of beer brewed with maple. Really, aside from pure Grade A Green Mountain maple syrup, I'm skeptical of anything made with maple. As a native New Englander and a Vermont resident for the last ten years I've tasted more than a few foods and beers that utilize maple to the detriment of the product. Either sweet to a fault or underwhelming, maple beers have usually let me down.

Not this one. 14th Star has done an excellent job coupling the balanced, super tasty stout foundation with subtle, sweet maple notes. This one's a winner. Plain and simple.
