Had a chance to taste this at a showcase last night. This beer is like taking a bite into a maple coated chocolate bar. The smell is unbelievable.

The king of adjunct stouts. This is an explosion of maple syrup reminiscent of putting maple syrup in bowel of french toast crunch cereal. I mean this is the most maple i have tasted in any item ever, other than pure maple syrup. Great body, some coffee but its very overwhelmed by the syrup. Overall its VERY sweet, kind of like breakfast in a glass. its nice, but i would give up the farm for it


2017 version (B4 i think).

Hype train finally crashes?

This beer is incredible. Is it really #1? For me it's not even close. The earlier batches were way better. Thinner, more acidic, more coffee with b4.

Looks great. Smells just amazing. The taste and feel are just a letdown for me. It's completely missing the maple now and the feel is a tad thinner. Overall, if you want the best variation of this beer go for batch 2 but IMO just trade for a Tree House Double Shot and save your money.

Poured black, looked thick and oily with no light penetrating. Thin head but a swirl looks oily on the walls.
Smells, coffee, maple, dark chocolate.
Taste is similiar, the dark roast coffee, maple, dark chocolate. On the sip it is like coffee and maple nut goodies, the finish is more bitter, espresso and dark maple syrup.
Overall I was glad to experience this one, it was quite enjoyable.

One of the most overrated beers of all time. B4 was terrible. It tasted like green peppers. Not worth seeking out. Hard pass for me on this beer.
