From a 32oz crowler, filled 10/25/18. Served in a tulip.

Pours impenetrably black with two fingers of fluffy brown head. Retention is excellent, leaving a thin webbery of lacing.

Powerfully intense nose of industrial strength grade b dark maple syrup.

Taste is thick and sweet, maple syrup and coffee and cream sweetened with more maple syrup. And then some more maple syrup.

Feel is dense and syrupy, medium-thick bodied and surprisingly well carbonated considering it's been in this crowler for like a month and a half.

Overall, not bad and, in fact, kind of good in a guilty, sickly-sweet sort of way, but I can't help thinking the beer and (at least some of) the maple would each have been happier had they gone their separate ways, and there's so much residual sugar I can feel the teeth rotting in my face. I can tell you right now, there's no way I'm drinking an entire quart of this. Edit to add: It took all night but I drank it all except for maybe about 4oz, because I'm heroic.

this is a beautiful looking brew that is wildly aromatic. reminiscent of a sweet and roasty sunday morning breakfast in very way. creamy flavors throughout invoking buttery maple syrup drenched pancakes, roasty coffee is definitely there but it takes the back seat in a way, blending beautifully though. mouthfeel is perfect.
