This is a special-release stout (acquired through trade) that is blended of seven different malts and Northern Brewer hops. Pours black with a two-finger tan head that dissipates quick. Faint aromatics of coffee and cocoa nibs and probably were all I could detect. Taste was flattish and made me wonder if this is better fresh? I could pick up light notes of coffee, toffee, and maybe roasted chocolate. Full bodied with decent carbonation. Highly disappointed brew. The label was probably the best thing going for this beer.

Shared this bottle with family at Christmas. There definitely wasn't consensus about the beer but here is my review.

Black black with a big thick creamy heady. The head stays to the end floating on top and lacing the edge. This is a beautiful beer, that everyone agreed upon.

The aroma is buttery roasted chocolate and chocolate and maple syrup

The mouth is smooth and very nice with big maple and butter. It's like chocolate pancakes with maple syrup this is very nice.

Although there was slight disagreement among we all concluded it was unique and best as a desert beer.
