12oz can at Bottle Rocket. Black pour with fine beige head. Aroma is maple, light chocolate. Taste also favors the maple, but enough chocolatey roast is behind for a beautiful blend of flavors.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Dark, dark pour... nearly black with a finger of mocha colored head. Nice lacing. No light get through the pour.

S: Roast and booze. Rich... chocolate and syrup.

T.F: Semi-sweet dark chocolate, roasted grains, and maple syrup. Mild espresso... char and chicory. More cocoa... medium bodied and smooth. Boozy and warming. Lingering maple sweetness at the finish.

O: A big drinkable and flavorful Imperial Stout. Overall quite good.

Glossy mahogany with a dense, creamy tan head of moderate height, slowly settling to a bubbly collar.

Smell is roastier, more savory and chocolatey of nutty cacao with only a hint of maple drizzled coffee bean.

Taste, too, contains plenty of roasty, peanutty malt, quite enough to even recall Hoppin Frog qualities. Only a mild, faint hint of maple blossoms in the finish, bringing with it a touch of banana skin, which I also remember detecting in the coffee version I had years ago.

The fluffy medium body finishes absolutely paper dry.

It's nice to see a big stout that's not barrel aged. This is a pretty easy drinker considering the 10.1% ABV and that's probably because of the light sweetness coming through from the maple. Very tasting but not overpowering. yb

12 oz can into a snifter glass. Looks deep, dark brown, almost black. Nice brown head falls off to a thin cap. Smell is chocolate, some coffee, roast malt, and dark fruit. Taste is sweet up front, maple, dark fruit. The middle gives some cocoa powder, a hit of bitterness, some coffee. The finish is characterized with a bit of earthy hoppiness, cocoa bitterness and a roasrt, nutty, almost smokey aftertaste. A touch of the 10% alcohol creeps in. Feel is full bodied, low, tight carbonation making it feel creamy on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent American imperial stout. You can taste the hops here as they definitely cut through. As it warms, the flavors intensify. A nice sipper for the cold winter.
