Poured a black color, leaving a beige head that disappeared quickly. An almost overwhelming hit of sweetness to the nose, heavy butterscotch, maple, and vanilla. Little spices and without a doubt, heavy notes of praline pecans. Then the taste hits you hard with maple and praline pecans followed by vanilla and a touch of warmth from the alcohol. Very sweet, quite literally a liquid dessert. Mouthfeel is big, very thick and creamy but surprisingly not sticky. Overall, this is great but one pour is enough. It's almost a struggle getting through a 16 oz can of Sticky Bun.

Nice sweet smell to go with the taste. Wish it were a bit thicker. It’s a bit too much on the sweet side for me to drink 16oz so I’m glad I’m splitting it. I’d buy 8oz bottles of this all day though.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This one smells like sweet candied pecan, brown sugar, chocolate covered cinnamon candy, coffee, roasted malt, and maple candies.

This is decadent and sweet, but done very well. There's a great candied nut flavor, like a a sticky pecan pie topping. There's candied cinnamon, not super spicy, with a big roasted coffee and roasty malt, and a nice subtle maple character. This works so well for me.

This is thick and chewy, with a silky and velvety mouthfeel.

This is easily one the best beers I've had from Great Notion.

Can. Tan head. Black color.

Sweet and sticky. Maple and brown sugar. Nutty, fudgy, chocolate. This is some serious pastry stout.

Full bodied, not super thick. Very flavorful. A fun beer.

Damn. What a great flavor of coffee, cinnamon and pecans. They hit the Belenda just right. Dark appearance with slight tan head. Aroma is a slightly sweet coffee, cinnamon with a slight pecan. Taste is slightly sweet and no alcohol aftertaste. Very nice
