Canned 2/28/18, consumed 4/11/18

L: Deep, dark black with a big, very thick and creamy dark tan head that left a lot of thick lacing.

A: Primarily burnt caramel malts, heavy toasted bread, and maple syrup. Some lighter notes of the barrel aging and dark fruits round things out.

T: Pretty much follows aroma spot on with a fuller flavor. Stronger notes of the dark fruits.

F: Medium, maybe a bit thin, smooth, creamy, solid bitterness.

O: Really enjoyed this collab. brew with Finback. The base is a strong, complex porter, and the barrel aged maple gives it a nice unique finish.

Can poured into a pub glass

A: Pours nearly black with a frothy tan head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Roasty, dark dried fruit, dark bitter chocolate, burnt toast, dark sugar, molasses, faint maple, and the slightest hint of barrel.

T: Roasty, dark chocolate, dark fruit, burnt toast, molasses, and subtle maple with just the faintest barrel presence.

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, slightly creamy.

O: Maple is more subtle than I was hoping for, but it provides a nice accent. Solid stout.
