Pours opaque black with hints of dark brown. A light cream coloured head which dissaptes but keeps a nice collar and incredible lacing.

Tons of roasted coffee on the nose and a touch of sweetness from the maple.

The flavour hits you with a nice coffee presence and a cocoa bitterness really well balanced by the maple.

Carbonation and mouthfeel were excellent for the style. A sticky was in the finish helps smooth out the roast and bitterness.

Overall a great brew that I'd search out again.

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a most black color with some slight dark amber to brown hues stiffly along the sides of the glass. Sustaining cap of tan foamy head glistened and slid concavely into a valley in the center. Not much lace.
The aroma captures an exceptional blend of sweet to roasty coffee bean goodness projecting upon some sweet maple tones, and some dark chocolate bittersweetness.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a dry bitterness from the roasty tones of the coffee bean and dark chocolate nibs. Moderate aftertaste of the roastiness dryly hits the sweetness of the dark chocolate and maple notes.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt nice and sturdy. ABV felt as projected by the brewer. Slight stickiness in the finish, but the roastiness does grip very nicely to smooth out any possible cloying qualities from occurring.
Overall, an absolutely spectacular imperial stout presenting maple, coffee and dark chocolate notes to make for a stellar evening.
