Great beer. Wish I had a bigger pour and wasn't drinking it in a solo cup. Plenty of flavor from the adjuncts, good barrel presence. Outstanding feel-great consistency, super mild for 14.5%.

Had on tap, Wow this is a rich and deep maple stout! The bourbon and maple are star crossed lovers, giving the beer a huge mouthwatering maple barrel note in the smell and taste, like a wave crashing upon the vanilla, coffee, and fudge. So much decadent flavor! Feel is thick, chewy, sticky sweet and warm.

Had an 8 oz pour of this at the Green Lady, at the end of a few other Buckley variants.
L: Pours dark black with a coffee-colored head that really only was at the edge of the glass.
S: Sweet maple & bourbon
T: More intense sweet maple & bourbon, coffee and maple offsetting each other in a great way. This couldn't really be done any better for this type of beer.
F: Thick mouthfeel that goes well with the sweet / coffee flavorings.
O: About a good as it gets, at least for my preference.

On tap at Brewskival 2018.

Pours jet black, thick and viscous with a slight wisp of chocolate colored foam.

Smell is mindblowing. Intense chocolate with some bitterness and coffee notes collide with the rich sweetness of maple syrup. Perfect balance of sweet and savory. I almost snorted the damn thing!

Taste is equally astounding. So many flavors, chocolate, maple syrup, coffee, cinnamon, sweet, bitter and spicy just combine into an entity of perfect destruction. The perfect storm, if you will. Everything just fits together to create a monster of a stout with just a hint of the ABV. Complex and layered, this is pretty much perfect.

Mouthfeel is full, rich and oily, thick and chewy with a good level of carbonation.

Overall, one of the best beers I've ever had. An absolute beast that I would pay vast sums of money to try again.
