Blind review. Sent in NBS BIF#8 from roguer. Poured into tulip. Bottled 4/19/18
Pours jet black, rocky mocha head of just about an inch.
Nose is maple cookies (my stepmom makes these maple cookies, they don’t taste good but they smell amazing), vanilla, hazelnut? Or nuts in general?
Upon first sip, maple for sure, like a lot of maple, maybe more maple, sweetness, strawberry (could be from sweetness) vanilla, lactose sweetness, smoke, pancakes (malts) mild roast, mild coffee. Me trying to breakdown the maple syrup-caramel and/or brown sugar.
As it warms, strawberry and nuttiness disappears, smoke and slight char become more present.
The body is medium but smooth with a lingering maple sweetness at the finish.
From the pour, I let this warm up for 45 minutes or so. I’ve decided that it’s some sort of adjunct (maple bomb) imperial stout/porter from Funky Buddha.

03/2015 - so much maple syrup on the nose, plus coffee and bready aromas; incredible iced coffee-like flavors, lovely maple syrup yet not sickly sweet, some lactose, and a bit of salt on the palate; roasty bitterness finishes it off.

From a fresh growler:
Look: Black with tan head/lacing
Smell: Big nose - sweet maple syrup, smoky malts, bacon, coffee
Taste: Tasty with hints of sweet maple (think breakfast syrup), bacon, salted caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, malts.
Feel: Heavy body; smooth.
Overall: Excellent. Recommended.
