Pours black with a light brown solid head. Super coffee roast aroma, very pungent. Taste is heavy coffee as well, with a lot of maple sweetness; the cinnamon comes through strong as well. Thick mouthfeel, carbonation was a little lacking, which is pretty much the only flaw in this excellent beer.

-Thanks to Stephanie (Kane)
- Imperial Milk Stout brewed with Rook Coffee, maple, and cinnamon.

A: Beautiful cascading effect with a dark tan head that is creamy and dense, standing a true two inches. The exiting pour was coffee colored, thick and viscose as it slurps from the bottle. Strong lasting coverage. Lots of micro-bubbly activity.

S: Burnt molasses, and chocolate. Dark sweet fruit, plums, sugary figs outlines. Sweet caramel and milky vanilla highlights. The maple syrup is rich and sweet, as well with evident hints of cinnamon spicing. Sweet initially, rich chocolate and marshmallow with cocoa. Things progressively move towards a smooth roastiness of cold coffee, caramel, and milky vanilla highlights.

T: Sweet dark fruit, particularly figs and plums with a smooth campfire minerality for flavor. The maple syrup plays a strong and sweet role in the profile. Silty coffee and caramel, with some molasses are strong supporters. Silty coffee texture and covering with sweet caramel and roastiness teasing the tongue and inner cheeks. Sweet roasty sweetness of chocolate and coffee with vanilla and maple syrup highlights really define the flavor profile.

M: Silty smooth texture on the mouthful with a equally smooth silty mouthful contribute and are equally as impressive.

O: The syrup backing brings sweetness and depth, while the cinnamon spicing has a nice finishing and complimentary touch. Outstanding flavor and texture. Everything blends so beautifully together its almost unreal. Sweet milky-vanilla with maple syrup and a silty texture leads to an outstanding drinkability that is exceptionally smooth and extraordinary.

Appearance - The beer poured an oily black color with a tan colored head and lacing left behind.

Smell - to put it simply, it smells like cinnamon toast. They were definite bread notes.

Taste - This tasted like cinnamon toast. They were definite bready notes with spice with just a touch of maple sweetness. The cinnamon was nicely balanced and not oppressive. In the back, it leaned more towards bitter coffee as the sweetness faded.

Mouthfeel - Being a porter, it was a little less clingy than a stout with less tendency to coat the mouth. It was still able to linger for a while b

Overall - This was great. It was not as heavy as a dessert stout.

Thank you, Sam. This was cellared a year-ish.

A very dark brown with a dense, brown head with good retention and lacing, this looks good. The nose is great. Cinnamon, smoke, buckwheat honey, dark caramel, milk chocolate, all in nice balance. A little maple is present as well, along with a little vanilla. The palate opens mildly sweet but with the flavors of chocolate and cinnamon in nice harmony with milk chocolate, creamy and sweet, present. Vanilla and maple are present. Surprisingly light on the palate, this beer is soft and creamy and mildly carbonated. Very good.
