Batch #4, on tap at 8/19 release.

It's a sexy looking stout, flirting and looking exactly like a stout should. Everything was pretty spot on with this whale minus the taste. Too much coffee bitterness. Tolerable but definitely there every sip. I wasn't sure how'd I react with this Being my first tasting of the hype train. I didn't hate it instinctively like I wanted too and thought I would. My crtitique was rather mild. Overall, the release was organized well but that place sucks. No atmosphere and just feels like the Dinseyland of breweries in the purely money making machine sense.

Delicious. Big maple aroma and exploding coffee flavor. I would like more maple. Slightly bitter coffee aftertaste. Nice viscosity. This is an amazing beer.

Most recent version, not a fan, sickingly sweet with an artificial maple flavor. Have liked last 2 years versions much more than this so I'll give it better ratings based on prior experience but this year is rough.

Tasted from draft at Hunahpu Day 16. Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma is maple syrup, bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Taste is super thick and chewy on the mouth. Lot of maple syrup. Flavors also of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits. Awesome beer.

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.
