Here we go......

This beer was much anticipated. Poured dark black, thick and decent carbonation. The nose was strong, fresh ground coffee. The taste followed the nose, big on fresh coffee, dark malts, with a little maple in the end. The feel was thick, moderate carb and full body.

This beer underwhelmed me. It had a great feel and strong coffee nose/taste, but fell short in the maple category (I was hoping for BIG maple). This is not a top 10 beer but is still excellent.

Very disappointed in this beer. Almost no maple presence. Just an above average coffee stout. I think TG stouts are all hype. If you are looking for a maple bomb, try Wide Awake 2016 or Double Stack. Easier to find and trade for, and taste much better.

B3 has too much bitterness from the expresso. I quite enjoyed the mouthfeel but got little maple on the nose and no where else and there wasn't any vanilla present.

Very dark, little head. Bursting aromas of raw coffee and a slight green pepper note. Olfactory onslaught when the beer hits your tongue...taste and smell attacks the nasal passage and circulates throughout. It is truly a coffee bomb, but I prefer a beer with greater density and mouthfeel.

Pours inky jet black with a fairly thin khaki head that receded to a thin ring fairly rapidly. Aroma is coffee and more coffee with a hint of chocolate and a faint wisp of maple in the background. The flavor has a tad more chocolate than the aroma, but the coffee really the star of the show. Again only a faint wisp of maple. A tad thin but overall a beautiful stout and a perfect example that no bourbon barrel aging is necessary to create a wonderful beer.
