Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma has loads of maple syrup, chocolate and caramel. Taste is more astringent with roasted malt flavor but also maple, cacao, baker's chocolate and coffee.

Strong Maple aroma, the maple flavor is obviously there along with some hints of vanilla, not too boozy even though this beer has more than 12 ABV, overall is a great beer; they should bottle it

Pour at the Modern Times Carnival of Caffeination. The line for Abnormal was consistently long, but I wasn't terribly impressed. This is a nice adjunct imperial stout, but falls short of the better ones of this style, such as Sunday Brunch, Double Stack, and Good Morning. I enjoyed it, but not sure what the hype is about.

Tan head. Black color.

Thick, sweet, and syrupy. Lots of maple and vanilla. Chocolate and caramel.

Medium to full bodied. Not as thick as some of the others that are similar in style.

Solid, but not as good as the other abnormal beer I had the previous day.
