12 oz. bottle.
Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Dark Horse Brewing Co., Marshall, MI.
Moderate pour yields a 1/2 inch tan head over a dark brown body with some lacing. Wonderful nose of maple, chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, and bourbon. Taste mirrors nose but more intense with the heat from the whiskey and very sweet. Feel is a bit thinner than I was hoping for but overall a great Impy Stout. Cheers!

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a thick dark brown close to black color rimmed with a half finger's worth of tan foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Not much lace, somewhat concave and wispy.
The aroma had a huge thick maple syrup character flowing over sweet milk chocolate and some sweet portions of dark chocolate and then a light little bit of dark bread.
The flavor was mainly sweet through all of those prior mentioned aromas. Full maple sweet and milk chocolate aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt somewhat low. ABV felt good and strong as projected. Finish was a little cloying, but somehow I think I expected that with the maple syrup.
Overall, aromas and flavors were fabulous. I wonder if a little age might do this some good. Wouldn't mind coming back to with an aged bottle.

Accidentally opened this one night after having other barrel aged stouts and knew immediately I wished I had drank this alone and slow. The smell of maple immediately made me realize how unique this smelled. The flavor was sweet and chocolaty and while some may be overwhelmed by the sweetness (I wasn't) you can't deny how distinct and unique this tastes - and how I wanted more. Sadly, was my only bottle.

This is one of the few beers in the world that delivers everything it promises to deliver. The maple, bourbon, and stout flavors are strong but balanced in a beautiful three-part harmony. The beer has earned its rating and is worth trying.

The mouthfeel and lingering flavor are probably the best part about this beer. The barrel woodiness and the viscous chocolate bourbon sugariness lasts for minutes in your mouth after each sip. It could easily be sipped the way a fine cognac or wine is sipped.

Overall, it is a perfectly balanced 12% abv maple bourbon stout .

This was pretty good. A bit overhyped in my opinion. The nose is straight up maple syrup, went down great but was a bit hard to go through the full bottle because it became overly sweet as it warmed.

12 oz. bottle. Black with no head. Smells of booze, raisins, oak, a little maple, but really not a lot. A hint of bourbon. Tastes of sweet chocolate, maple, oak, dark fruit like raisins again. Bourbon in the back. Heavy and boozy, but surprisingly, the sweetness doesn't overwhelm it. Very good in small quantities.
