Agamemnon.

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.
