This beer has one of the better "noses" I've encountered in the past year. Tons of chocolate, vanilla, honey, coffee, and of course Maple! Definitely is reminiscent of hot cakes and syrup.

Taste follows rather closely to the smell...a touch more earthy though...and a slight bit of alcohol heat on the end....otherwise a great beer. Not overly sweet which is a big plus in my book.

I personally really enjoy and don't understand the super low scores. This strikes a nice balance between pastry/classic imperial stout.

I like this beer. Not overpoweringly sweet like the Southern Tier Creme Brulee, but there's definitely a subtle maple flavor that is appealing. A lot of sweet stouts are one-and-done for me because its like eating multiple desserts, but I could drink 2-3 of these in one sitting.

Would definitely buy it again.

Decent maple on the nose, good bit of toasted malt. Palate with solid viscosity but lacking in flavor. Not enough maple sweetness, with an abundance of roasty malt bitterness and some tinniness on the tail. Disappointing overall.
