Pours opaque, jet black in color with three quarter inch head. Taste is maple walnut ice cream and light roasted malt. Smooth, medium heavy bodied, sweet and slightly roasty. Delicious. They need to can this. Liquid ice cream. One of their best flavored stouts, non Oreo category.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery.

A - Poured into a custom Tree House snifter a nice dark brown almost black with a nice one finger mocha head that fades to leave a wispy creamy blanket with solid lacing.

S - Aromas of big, bold maple syrup. Sweet but not cloy. Good quality amber. Nice chocolate notes, though they're certainly overpowered by the maple. Coffee is pleasant and nicely roasted, however, that too is overpowered by maple. Smells like breakfast. Incredibly maple forward with flashes of creamy chocolate.

T - Taste is similar to the nose but far more balanced. Chocolate hits first with rich bakers chocolate, dark cacao galore. Lightly fudgy. Coffee is nicely balanced, good roast with a little bit finish. The maple rounds things out pleasantly. While the maple is certainly aggressive it balances the richness and roast of the chocolate and coffee quite nicely. Good malt backbone.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, smooth. Good body. Not overly thick, lighter, which is more akin to the style. Due to all the maple though it does come across sticky and just almost almost cloy.

O - Overall this was a very, very nicely done milk stout. The maple is most definitely on the aggressive side throughout the beer and as such elbows it's way past everything. It's also quite sweet but not as sweet as the extra maple extra chocolate version.
