Black as hell. Mocha brown head with great stickage. Looks like motor oil, for sure.

Faintly smoky with notes of dark chocolate, maple, and licorice. Heavy heavy roastiness equipped with noticeable malt bitterness to combat what smells like sweetness.

A roasty sweet malt wonderland with huge flavor notes of bitter chocolate, gooey toffee, booze, licorice, spicy hops, maple, and faint smokiness. Incredible stuff.

Silky, yet soft, too. Has some suds, not many but some. Feels good and thick.

A very good impy. Love how the sweetness turned how to be milder.

Pours a jet black with very little to no head. More like wisps of tan foam.

Smell is chocolate, vanilla, soy sauce and a hint of alcohol.

Taste is similar to the nose. Chocolate is up front with hints of vanilla, coffee and soy. There is a definite alcohol burn in the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasant.

Overall this is a nice beer but it is not what I was expecting. The maple aspect of the beer is totally missing for me.

22oz bottle split and poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a thick very black with a mahogany head. Leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Head remains as a thin film throughout the glass.

S: Roasted malts blended with coffee and chocolate. A bit of smokiness to it. Sweet maple syrup as the bottle indicates. A touch of booze in there hints at things to come.

T: Starts off as a full bodied wholesome stout with a strong roastiness. After swallowing dark fruits, tobacco, alcohol, coffee and carmel come through.

M: Has low carbonation and a full body. I like the creamy mouthfeel that compliments the bold flavors. Some stickiness comes through from the sweetness.

Overall maple syrup makes a great compliment to the strong stout flavor. Great looking bottle made this an easy sell. Give it a shot if you're into bold and complex beers.

Great carbonation. Sneaky boozey. Balanced sweetness from honey. Dry on back end.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. 2013 bottle, properly cellared. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass, with only a few patches of brown foam and a tiny ring around the glass. Aroma of toasted, charred malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and light molasses. Flavor is smoky toasted dark malt, high cacao chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Finishes with smoke and char, vanilla, chocolate and light oak and grassy hop bitterness. Nice nearly syrupy creamy body with decent carbonation considering the lack of head on pouring. A really nice, dark, smoky, toasty stout with good light chocolate and coffee notes and some woody barrel flavors, although I'm not sure this was barrelled. High ABV well covered by quite rich taste. A very enjoyable deep, dark stout.
