Pours near black, rich frothy brown head, no lacing. This one really needs to have all the chill removed before it begins to open up - cinnamon finally comes through all the malts and dark fruit; vanilla is there, but very muted. Taste is cinnamon forward, maple on the finish, and bitter coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for me, but again, as it warms, it becomes a bit richer.

Pretty good French Toast flavor. Kind of on the thin side, but fairly good.

L - Standard appearance: black body, red edges, and a finger of khaki-colored head

S - Cinnamon is huge, as is vanilla. Roasted coffee, sugary sweetness.

T - coffee, milk chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, marshmallow, cinnamon-sugar, espresso, dark coffee finish

F - Not as thick as an imperial stout should be, but good enough. No alcohol, and drinks easy

O - Great dessert (or breakfast beer). Really nails the promised flavors. Needed a thicker body to bring it to elite levels.

Muted blackish with a moderate fuzzy tan head that settles to a persistent thin bubbly blanket and brown edges.

Smell is actually a little mint chocolate somehow, possibly due to the hops, with hints of roasted coffee and toast, and even lighter hints still of cinnamon and maple syrup.

Ahh, there it is--the cinnamon-maple combo comes up front on the palate, but not ostentatiously. Beer flavors still play a major role, with bitter, roasty coffee and cocoa-esque malt, plus a little astringency again--are there too many hops in this? This not the right beer for strong hops. I also detect some light nutty flavors, rum soaked vanilla bean and cola on the back end.

Feel is a little thin, with a slight, thin froth and a semi-dry finish.

This is not the beer I was led to believe it to be by a normally trustworthy friend. However, it is beer first, and not some overly flavoring-infused Coffee Mate bullshit. It is on the much lighter side of the stout world, though.
