Black as night and no penetration to light. No head at all. The aroma is of sweet bourbon and even sweeter maple syrup. I'm tasting plenty of sweet bourbon and sweet and delectable maple syrup. The mouth is extremely thick and chewy.

2017 vintage.

This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells very maple forward, sweet, sticky and rich, with big bourbon aromas, caramel, oak, coffee, roast and brown sugar.

This is a big burly monster of a beer and I love it. It's very chocolatey, with burnt sugar/molasses/brown sugar notes, as well a big silky maple character layered through the whole thing. It's slightly boozy, but it's a pleasant burn. There's a big bourbon character here, but the maple and big roasty and chocolatey base stand up to it nicely anyway.

This is medium bodied, rich, fairly thick, and creamy, with a surprisingly high level of drinkability for such a burly beer.

This is a classic for a reason. This one would come highly recommended.

Reviewed as: Russian Imperial Stout
Misc.: 2016 version (I think); ABV was 13.8 pct.

Was excited to finally try this. Had a bottle of one at one time, but ended up trading it for something else. Saw this on the back patio Tiger! Tiger! and knew I’d be getting it with my second beer. I believe it was the 2016 version, judging by the ABV. One guy didn’t know which version it was, another thought it was this one. I’ll go with it.

Poured a black color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Was dark in there, but could not detect any bubbles coming up. Excellent semi-layered lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled boozy bourbon, oaky leather, maple syrup, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light licorice, molasses and espresso. (Smell - 4.25)

Taste was just as good as the nose. Got boozy bourbon, maple syrup, brown sugar, oaky leather, dark caramel, smoked toffee, anise, cold brew espresso and sticky molasses. (Taste - 4.25)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming finish. (Feel - 4.50)

This was excellent overall. Would like to have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.25)

2016 bottle. Smells quite pleasantly sweet, with a little alcohol heat and a ton of barrel presence. I'm surprised that there is still a bit of burn to the beer after all of this time - thankfully, it doesn't manifest so much in the taste and mouth feel as in a nice burn in your throat and chest. I like it - very pleasant.

The maple has faded ever so slightly, but it's still an exceptionally sweet, maple forward beer. It's aging well. No signs of oxidation.

It surprises me that this one isn't more highly sought after. Perhaps it's the price tag? It's a tremendous beer, nonetheless.
