Tan head. Black color.

A lot of sweet maple. Chocolate and fudge dipped bourbon. Oak. Has a dark fruit, raisin, molasses flavor.

Thick and rich. Nice feel. A little roasted. Well done.

Chocolate covered maple candies, rich creamy dark chocolate, smooth vanilla, a hint of dark fruits and dark coffee wash over the palate lingering with oak, some slight bourbon, and more maple syrup.

Solid black color. Body has a thick oily feel, medium light carbonation which seemed a little bit too much for the style .
Aroma was maple syrup, bourbon, alcohol, and it smelled almost candy like sweet .
Taste is all bourbon followed quickly by maple syrup. As it warms the maple syrup gets stronger, dominates the taste, coats the tongue and lingers awhile . There's a small amount of coffee, malt, and roasted malt that shows up in the finish.
Overall the maple syrup and bourbon dominated to the point of washing out the flavors of the base beer. It was good but not my favorite from eviltwin

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear thick viscous inky jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and very faint extremely dark cola brown colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy dark mocha head that slowly reduces to a handful of small to medium sized patches of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of roasted malts, oat malts, caramel malts, and chocolate malts with moderate to strong amounts of maple syrup sweetness. That is followed by moderate aromas of bakers chocolate + hazelnut as well as moderate to strong aromas of vanilla + caramel + toasted oak + bourbon. Hints of dark fruits (prune + fig).

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of roasted malts, oat malts, caramel malts, and chocolate malts with moderate to strong amounts of maple syrup sweetness as well as light flavors of dark fruits (prune + fig). That is followed by moderate flavors of bakers chocolate + hazelnut as well as moderate to strong flavors of vanilla + caramel + toasted oak + bourbon. Light amounts of roasty bitterness in the finish which does not linger for too long slowly fading to flavors of bourbon + maple syrup.

M: Just shy of full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick and smooth with a hint of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Easy to drink for such a big sweet stout - definitely a sipping beer - with relatively well hidden alcohol. Very enjoyable with rich flavors and aromas.

This is everything I hoped it would be and more. The evil twin stout signatures of hazelnut, baker's chocolate, caramel, light creamy body, go perfectly with the bourbon maple barrels, resulting in a stout that is sweet, rich, and finishes bright for the style in a rewarding way. Tastes like a rich chocolate maple truffle. The smell is bourbon and maple rich with chocolate supporting. The brighter body is perfect for the ingredients, admittedly not the most full. Is very sweet though, so be in the mood for that and you are good to go!

not a very stout type of day... but this was irresistible sounding and looking (and the brewery has a solid track record in my book so...)

eyes...
completely devoid of anything considered light, this thing even seemingly swallowed the event horizon and B.O.B. (maximillian may have survived... hard to tell), the head was (emphasize was) 3 fingers strong and a much darker shade of cocoa than I have seen on... well... any stout I can recall at the moment, however it dropped faster than David Caruso's movie career, lacing is super nice.... total coating and coverage, nice

nose...
wow...bourbon laced in maple syrup, ok, i seems obvious given the description on the bottle but you can't always trust a book by it's cover, you get a strong booze (bourbon) note bathed in vanilla goodness with a pancake smack of maple on top.. man.. this is damn damn (damn) fine, all the components are peas in a pod here, they totally get along, no sense of acrimony, only cooperation, absolutely fantastic!

taste etc...
smooth as lando calrissian, the ABV only shows in the warming down under, in the mouth this is a study in seduction... the carbonation has just enough float and the flavor has just enough coat... coat the mouth in lovely flavors that is... deep, rich vanilla notes balanced out with maple (which never gets to the overly sweet phase... which would totally go against my flavor profile), one strange thing... you smell more boozy than you taste ya floozie, but that is a good thing. This has decent weight... maybe it could be a bit heavier but that is being pretty nitpicky on my part.

verdict?
OK... $27 for one bottle is a bit much... is this worth $27? ...hmmm.... it's actually a close call, that is how good this beer is, it scores in so many ways but mostly in the sensation... the nose combined with the taste with the feel... a great beer. one to split for dessert among friends (not out on the porch in the summer though!)... really great stuff here.
