Pours a black motor oil ,one finger brown foam cap recedes to a ring

Aroma is maple syrup, fresh roast coffee

Taste is fresh ground coffee, maple syrup , roasted malts

Mouthfeel is lighter than I expected, hint of coffee acridness, bit of booze

Good beer

Pours a deep brown/black color with a thick tan colored head that sticks around and has some nice lacing down the glass. This beer smells like maple pancakes and a cup of coffee from a serious distance. Up close it's fresh maple, a great cup of coffee, and somehow the sweetness of pancakes. Taste is a smooth coffee, roasted malts, toasted pancake followed by sweet maple and finished off with a sweet coffee finish. Smooth, full feeling, perfect amount of carbonation. Incredible.

16 oz can dated 01/06/2021
Oh Holy Father the aroma as i cracked this open!
Natural maple syrup, pancakes, honey and sweet coffee.
And it aint a bad looker either. Black body and beautiful inch thick creamy tan head.
Taste not as sweet as one ( me) would expect but it has all the taste profile of a down home old style diner pancake feed.
Mouth feel is thick and silky. Not one to have multiples off.
Great beer for the style

Smells like delicious pancakes. Tastes complex and intriguing, with hints of coffee and maple. Really smooth and creamy. If I changed anything, it would be more maple and less coffee, but then, I LOVE sweet stuff. Overall a great beer!

Look: dark, almost black ,small tan head with good lacing
Smell: I get the coffee, then maple, lot's of maple
Taste: sweet, day old coffee, followed by maple with hints of vanilla and roast
Feel: full, smooth with a touch of carbonation.
Not really a fan of maple stouts, but this is quite good.

Beer #1600 on BA is another beauty.

Brew #8 from the Hop Culture Juicy Brews box, a 16oz can poured into a glass coffee mug.

A: Moderately thick black pour; certainly dense and opaque but not the thickest stout ever. Capped by a creamy mocha head.

S: Delicious, decadent, rich coffee and maple syrup character. Chocolatey notes as well. The coffee isn't acrid or bitter, just smooth and rich and plays well with the maple syrup sweetness.

T: Yeah, so easy to drink - this is literally my wheelhouse. Just enough sugary maple syrup to be rich and decadent without being cloying; roasted malt profile bolsters up that sweetness, and the fresh coffee shines through with a breakfast-y feel to it.

MF: Again, not the biggest stout I've seen or tried but big enough, and the body stands up to the adjuncts.

O: Just delicious and darn near perfect for a maple syrup coffee stout.

Appearance - The beer poured a brown-ish black color with an off-white head crowning the pour.

Smell - Maple syrup stood out in the nose but there was some bitterness to lend a sense of balance.

Taste - The maple was huge, complemented by a dry bready backbone. A bit of charred dark coffee lent a sense of balance. The sweetness fades in the finish leaving a light coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel - The body seemed a bit thin for a sweet stout, but it had stickiness.

Overall - The nice thing about this mapled stout was that it was not too heavy.

Brownish black with two fingers of brown foam. Smell and taste are clones: huge maple syrup from the local diner with coffee bean, mild chocolate, brown sugar and molasses. Reminds me a lot of Mikerphone's imperial SLBS extra maple variants. Feel is lighter and not syrupy at all though, roasted and malty if anything, amazing given the huge maple presence. Would love to try this in a barrel! A classic that is worth the hype for a great maple fix without saturating the palate with sweetness

Huge sugary maple nose, like someone spilled a bottle of Syrup. Full bodied, super slick & smooth mouthfeel. Taste is significantly more coffee-forward than expected, with the maple really coming through on the finish. Hides 11% ABV incredibly well.

Maple bomb for sure. Can get overwhelming if you are killing a 16oz on your own.

T: coffee, chocolate, pancakes, maple, a little roasty/burnt.

Overall: very good. I generally don’t like overly sweet stouts, but great notion seems to know how to push the limits without going overboard.
