I'm a little surprised this isn't rated over 90. For what it is, a sessionable stout, it might just be the best I've ever had. A deep, solid brown color with a small lasting head and plenty of lacing. Smell is roasty cocoa and some coffee, a little nuttiness, maybe just the slightest hint of anise but hard to tell. More like one typically gets from a porter. Not much maple in the smell. It's a little thin in the mouth, but tastes like a nice, roasty, flavored stout, just lighter in all aspects. Not much maple -- I wouldn't be able to tell if it didn't say it had maple. Maybe it just adds to the balance. There might be a little coffee flavor, but maybe it's the roastiness I'm detecting. Once again the flavors are a very balanced and a lighter than bigger stouts and my palate isn't so refined as to pick it all out. A very balanced flavor, though. Love it. It lacks in the feel, but it's also less ABV than other light stouts, which are typically 6+%. Makes it truly sessionable, and I love it. ...Have I said that I love it? Well, I love it. Glad I took a shot here, cause this is exactly what I've been looking for -- for much too long. (1,164 characters)

A very well done breakfast stout, but I didn't get as much maple as I was hoping. (81 characters)

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. (275 characters)

Nice aroma: roasted barley, dark coffee, sharp fruit, wood.

Flavor follows, with a smooth woody sweetness. A touch of cola.

Mouthfeel is thin for the style, but this is a low ABV stout. (187 characters)
