Sad to say, but now a solid 10 years into my beer "career" I've become a jaded vet. I no longer chase the tick...trading relationships have all but moved on...aside from this one. Greg...my man...I can't quit you baby!!! And THIS beer. THIS one...TUESDAY (and I'm drinking it on a Tuesday mind you)...ah yes...this Tuesday...In all your maple barrel-aged cinnamon hazelnuttiness, you. OH how I love you. You are so good that I have to share my love...yes, THAT good.

Lush like cycle ought to and used to be. The body on this brings me back to the good ol peg's days. this one is KILLER.

Absolutely outstanding. Very well balanced of maple, cinnamon, and hazelnuts. Nose is fantastic and preludes the great taste and full thick bodied stout.

Hazelnut tastes fairly artificial. Slight espresso flavour. Milk chocolate. Light barrel. Not much in way of maple flavour, although perhaps a bit of the maple sweetness comes across. Medium bodied, not thick, standard Cycle body- thin relative to the flavour. Good carbonation. It's good, but I don't get the hype behind the hazelnut stouts.

This is the beer from the 2018 weekday set I was most excited to dive into, and it lived up to those lofty expectations for sure.

This one pours a very dark black color, with barely any head, and no lacing.

This smells like what I would imagine it would smell like if you poured hazelnut cream and maple syrup over Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be like- it's a sweet explosion. There's also sweet milk chocolate and just a hint of sweet bourbon.

All the of the flavors are authentic, and none of them dominate- they all meld exceptionally well together. This is definitely quite sweet, but it's luckily not all that cloying for me. The maple feels like a lighter amber grade sort of flavor, and the hazelnut flavor brings notes of vanilla and hazelnut coffee creamer, with a distinct toasty feel to it as well. The cinnamon is a bit of a bench player, but it's definitely there, adding a bit of sweet cinnamon spice- it feels a bit maybe like a cinnamon bun with hazelnut frosting. This brings to mind all the sweet things in life that you enjoy. And even with nuclear flavorings assault, the base beer still pokes through- that old chocolatey friend that always props these Cycle beers up.

This is medium bodied, thick but not overly so, with a lower level of carbonation.

This is most likely the best Cycle beer I've ever had. This is pastry stout at it's most dangerous and well-realized. It is just an absurd beer all around.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense finger of dark tan head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing.
S: Smells intensely of hezelnuts on the nose with a little cinnamon and a hint of maple. Not really picking up any base beer or barrel on the nose.
T: Taste is hazelnuts and maple up front with some light cinnamon. hints of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts come out to play with a little oak and caramel. Hazelnut flavor remains pretty forward on this one. Swallow is cinnamon, hazelnuts, and maple with some caramel, vanilla, oak, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts.
M: This beer is full bodied with a slightly silky mouthfeel. Carbonation is low but adequate for the style while the beer has a drying finish from the ABV. The residual sweetness tries to keep it refreshing but it loses the battle.
O: This beer is pretty damned awesome. Great flavors and complexity on this one. The barrel is pretty well hidden and the adjuncts are pretty far forward but it's still a very enjoyable drink. Definitely worth a try if you can find it.
