The beer pours a Pitch Black with a thin khaki head. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of heavy maple syrup, coffee roast, and molasses. It tastes of maple syrup, coffee, caramel, toffee, and molasses. The mouthfeel is medium. This is a great beer straight maple and coffee without being too sweet or boozy.

Something overly sweet vanilla or lactose that fights the coffee and doesn’t quite blend. Good stout but a little let down for a top 20 world beer.

A: Pour is black and oily with brown highlights, and a head length of about a ½ inch. The retention and lacing are decent yet minimal

S: Sublime when freshly cracked, as the bottle transmits pure maple syrup, bacon, and eggs. Nonetheless, the initial transmission confines to more elaborate settings via pour: chocolate, cocoa, molasses, caramel, and vanilla

T: An impressive maple feat that mimics the scent, yet more to explore in with notes of sweet caramel, toffee, brownie, and distant coconut-flaked marshmallows. Yet with patience, comes the progression of an exquisite smoked wood character, sap, and liquorice

M: A temperate carbonation with a genuine medium feel, and a sneaky abv: sticky, creamy, and smooth with a biscuit-y element

O: There’s a sharp, potent, vegetal/fruit aspect lingering, but nothing threatening amongst the bitter char and espresso delight: fairly well balanced, and nothing overbearing in the arena

Batch 4 shared at SP release. Pours a sludgy black. Big roasty malts on the nose with a hint of sweetness. Very nice balance of roast and maple flavors, and the resulting aftertaste really sticks with you. Was very glad to try.

Huuuuuuuge thanks to rudzud, #5800!

Decent fluffy creamy dark head fades semi quickly, little lacing, it doesn't really have legs because it never falls off the sides, pitch black beer.

Nose is incredible, loads of awesomeness and maple, dark chocolate cocoa, little fluffy marshmallow and nougat, tons of vanilla, toffee and caramel, maple cream too, fair maple aroma, a little fresh coffee notes, fresh roasted coffee beans, cocoa

Taste rich creamy dark malts, loads of rich dark chocolate and cocoa, lush creamy mocha, roasted coffee, fresh coffee beans, vanilla all over, fresh vanilla and vanilla chocolate cocoa, lush cocoa, little marshmallowy nougat candy but not really sweet, again big maple cream as well, little bitterness, mild sticky sweetness but not much, no alcohol, chocolate covered espresso beans. Finishes a bit drier mild sticky, thick mouth coating, little bitterness, loads of fresh coffee beans and dark chocolate, some vanilla and maple lingering.

Mouth is fuller bod but wish a bit heavier, lush creamy nice fluffy carb, very little booze.

Overall incredible!

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros. Review 3200.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark black hue with a thin mocha head that fades to leave phenomenal lacing and a creamy halo.

S - Aromas of big sweet malts, maple syrup and maple cream, great vanilla, lovely chocolate nice nougat. Amazing nose.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with excellent maple notes, maple cream. Big bold coffee notes, big dark chocolate almost dry bakers chocolate. The finish is lingering maple. Light sweetness.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, good creamy notes, alcohol hidden nicely.

O - Overall this was a very good stout with lovely coffee and chocolate notes. The maple is really prominent too.
