650ml bottle, snifter glass. Darker black body, one finger white head, good retention and no lacing. Smell is big pepper heat without much vegetal presence, a fair bit of spicy cinnamon, touch of whiskey, milk chocolate. Flavour follows; cinnamon spice, milk chocolate, a bit of toasted malt, touch of espresso roast, with a fairly decent pepper heat on the backend. The maple barrels don't really seem to announce itself, sadly. Still, pretty solid chili pepper stout. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, smooth on the tongue with a spice-forward heat on the finish that lingers for a while.

This one is a rare 5 for me, and my favorite of the week day beers

looks great in the glass

smell immediately tells me this is going to be amazing, chocolate, vanilla bourbon.

Taste is off the charts, super flavorful and complex. pepper heat shows up perfectly in the back end

mouthfeel is normal cycle, spot on

overall this was a real treat, and so far its my favorite beer of the year

appreciate @nate41909 for sending it over

This one pours a very dark black color, with a tiny wispy head, and no lacing.

This smells like maple syrup, oak spice, marshmallow, brown sugar, bourbon, pepper spice, and cinnamon.

Regular &+ is a delicious beer, and aging it in maple bourbon barrels just amplifies it's great qualities. Somehow, the pepper character on this maple version is a bit more pronounced than the regular bourbon version. To be fair, there will be some sips with no pepper, and then a subsequent sip will have a big pepper blast. The maple character is dark, rich, and adds an earthy sweetness to the more traditional pastry sweetness here, as this somehow has more vanilla flavor than the vanilla solo movie that was Monday. There's only a hint of cinnamon, and not a ton of bourbon flavor- just a hint on the finish.

This is medium bodied, sticky and rich, with a lower level of carbonation.

This is just the slightest hair behind Tuesday for the star of 2018 set. It's again pastry stout at it's most ridiculous and delicious.

This taste like Mexican French toast (if that’s a thing). Huge maple on the nose, sweet cinnamon in the taste and a little heat on the back in. Wonderful beer.
