Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark red/black with a small off white head. Smells of some coffee, but it almost smells if maple syrup was dumped in the beer, but it doesn't ruin it. Tastes initially of coffee very strongly, then finishes very nicely with the maple syrup, very nice contrast and balance. Beer is very lightly carbonated, and for a medium body, goes down nicely and could possibly be sessionable. Overall a very good beer.

3.8/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark brown with some reddish hues and one finger of light tan head that fades to a thin cap with a curtain of lace.

Aroma: Roasted malt and cocoa, that's about it.

Taste: Just a hint of syrup sweetness at the onset, then lots of roasted malt. As the malt fades a little, there is a definite maple note that pokes up leading to a slightly nutty, chalky and fairly astringent finish. A good amount of carbonation towards the back end help break-up any one flavor.

The Rest: Body is just on the thin side of medium and drinkability is very good. This is the second beer in the sampled pack that I've been quite impressed with.
