Look is jet black. Very vigorous pour yielded only a 1/2 finger of dark brown head.

Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, maple ,bourbon and some roast.

Taste follows nose. Bakers chocolate, maple and bourbon lurking in the background. Really well done. Like a bourbon brownie.

Feel is slick and oily.

Overall a fantastic stout. I am very surprised that the bourbon doesn't outweigh the maple. Nicely done!

12oz. bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is lactose, chocolate, maple syrup, oak, booze and sweet soy sauce. Delightfully deep. Beer opens syrup, chocolate, booze and sweet soy sauce. A touch of oak, roast and even a bit of saltiness just serves to enhance the sweetness. Fudge brownie and more booze at the finish. This is really delicious! Body is full with low carbonation. Slick, oily and smooth in the mouth and goes down soft, rich and accented. Sticky aftertaste.

This is really a dessert beer to the Nth degree. Absolutely delicious!

Pours completely black, no head, almost looks still. Oily appearance. Otherwise pretty unremarkable.

Smell has notes of burnt roasted malts that quickly gives way to a lovely strong maple syrup aroma. Hints of bourbon peak through.

Taste follows the nose - initially there are roasted slightly burnt malts, really nice. Sweet, with hints of clear maple syrup. Touch of bourbon that really takes a back seat. Notes of sweet milk chocolate, creamy caramel, all are present here. Bit of alcohol heat on the back end.

Feel is very thick and oily. Syrupy and almost sticky. Mild carbonation but prickly.

Overall quite a lovely stout. The maple in this is expertly balanced.

While rolling this around on my tongue I felt an overwhelming sense of regret. I looked off into the sunset and held my head in my hands. I looked up at god and he looked back at me. We kissed for a moment. It was beautiful. MICHIGAN MAPLE JESUS WAS BORN!
