Tasted from bottle 2018 edition. Black with beige head. Aroma of peanuts, coffee and cocoa. Don’t get the maple on aroma. Moderately sweet and bitter. Not an overpowering peanut butter flavor definitely present with a nice maple flavor to follow. Well balanced with the coffee and chocolate along with a slight bit of caramel. Very nice beer.

This has that sticky, very lightly smoky but sweet Aunt Jemima note that Smells Like Bean Spirit has, still allowing some room for creamy peanut butter on the back end with a good froth and a paper dry finish. It's not cloying and to some the maple wasn't there enough, but it was just fine for me. Not my favorite variant but enjoyable still.

On draft. Darker black body. Smell is heavy roasted coffee bean, nutty with a very light maple presence. I had to search more for the maple; I was hoping for something on the level of Mornin' Delight with nuts but ultimately this was a coffee forward stout. Full bodied, good carbonation, roast on the finish. Roast all the way through, kind of detracted from the already excellent regular Nut Smasher, in my opinion.

Very dark pour with little head. Smell is phenomenal. Had 4 Nutsmasher variants sitting side-by-side (regular, Vietnamese Coffee, Vietnamese Coffee w/ Vanilla, and Maple) sitting side by side, and as soon as it was put down I could easily pick out the maple. Maple is obvious in the taste, but not overwhelming. It takes the edge off of the coffee, chocolate, and peanut butter without eliminating any of them. Maple and coffee as most prominent and integrated beautifully. Mouth could be a little thicker, but this is a tremendous beer, and by far my favorite of the Nutsmasher variants.
