L: pours black, doesn't look ultra thick, could see some light. A dark brown head that fades fast
S: some bourbon sweetness, more of a molasses than chocolate, and no maple. The smell is good, but it isn't jumping out of the glass
T: there is the maple! A bit of subtle bourbon though. The maple sweetness does help counteract the molasses.
F: medium to thick thickness. Creamy feel but doesn't cost well

From a bomber into a snifter
2016 Edition
Maple Bourbon barrel imperial stout (Maple DOS)

APPEARANCE: Pours out clear black and yields a 2+ finger, medium-thicker looking dark tan head with great retention. Creamier looking and not fizzy at all. Black body with no carbo evident. Head slowly recedes to a full cap and leaves sheets of lacing on the glass. A good wisp remains leaving solid lacing down the glass. Good looking stuff.

SMELL: Medium strength nose of bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet, creamy milk chocolate, toffee, butterscotch, and faint maple aromas as well. Lots of barrel and candy going on here.

TASTE: More maple in the flavor up front, with notes of toffee, butterscotch and bourbon as well. Some oak and wood at the swallow with a medium but lingering finish of milk chocolate, sweet vanilla cream, oak, toffee and butterscotch, some maple flavors and alcohol. Sweet and boozy, with a nice hint of maple syrup in there as well.

PALATE: Medium-fuller body and medium carbonation. Creamy and enough weight on the palate, goes down with a bit of a scratch and burn, finishing a touch mouth-coating. A bit of heat lingers.

OVERALL: Another excellent Cycle imperial stout. The maple bourbon barrels give it a different character than using pure maple syrup in the brew, as the maple comes off very much in the background and as part of the barrel presence as a whole. Both approaches work in the end, and this is a very nice example of this particular method. It’s also well engineered, with a very nice look and a solid feel to it. Thanks again for this one desp59. These guys do great stout beers and this is another stellar example. Cheers!

Looks dark. Little head. Aroma is strong bourbon, but not necessarily hot. But maybe like cheap bourbon. Then the taste...tangy, dark bakers chocolate, booze. Not impressive. The sour flavor isn't my bag. Thin mouthfeel, maybe a shade thinner than BCBS. No maple. Didn't really enjoy this one.

Great beer, nice mouthfeel and a solid stout. Not as much maple as I would have thought. Very solid beer, just would like a little more maple taste to it.
