4.13/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a deep black has to be held to the sun to see red around the edges. Nice thick two finger tan head that falls oh so slowly off an aggressive pour.

Aroma is nice sweet chocolates, lactose up front on roasted malts. Underneath vanilla, maple , caramel hints of coffee.

Taste is wow rich and roasted with lots of lactose, maple, lesser caramel and chocolate. Underneath you have the vanilla lingering maple and lactose sweetness with some coffee like bitterness mingled with the hops, maybe even licorice hints. A big beer full of flavor that is really bordering on being cloying for me.

Mouthfeel is a big full heavy body full of extra sugars carbonation is nice and smooth.

Overall a nice big stout only issue for me was it does approach cloying maybe just a touch too much lactose.

Mouthfeel is big

4.56/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look - A noticeable, impressive head. Very dark and murky appearance that shows even in the head.

Smell - Smells like coffee beans and molasses.

Taste - Tastes like a mocha coffee with very noticeable molasses notes. Incredibly sweet but not sickening. Like drinking a coffee with cream and two sugars.

Feel - Very smooth and creamy. I said it tastes like drinking a coffee with two sugars and the feel is consistent. If you carbonated a cup of high end coffee, it would probably be quite similar to this.

Overall - Fantastic stout. smooth, great taste, nice and high ABV, and its basically a cup of coffee in a beer can. If you're looking for a stout that will speak to you, try this one out.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 03/19/19

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice black color, with some pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus tan head, which also leaves some small islands and some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with a pretty nice touch of chocolate/toffee, vanilla, maple, licorice. The taste is pretty nice, malty, with a pretty nice touch of chocolate/toffee, with some nice vanilla/maple sweetness, licorice. Full Body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a slight dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Glad to see it around here.

L: Poured from a growler to a to a pint glass. Had a dark, mahogany brown color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, off white head that quickly dissipated. Sparse lacing.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of maple syrup, malt, lactose, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.

T: Tasted of a small amount of chocolate (just enough, though), a tinge of caramel, a ton of maple syrup (the dominant ingredient), a hint of vanilla, a little bit of char, and some lactose as well. A super sweet and thoroughly enjoyable flavor. It's definitely a maple syrup bomb, but the other elements support it well. Pretty tasty stuff.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: If you like maple syrup, check this one out. Drinkable.

4.14/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Deep, dark brown body, nearly black; thick and creamy light tan head; fingers of lacing streak down the glass. Big maple nose; vanilla; roasted grain; baker's chocolate. The taste comes across like a maple-flavored donut; fairly sweet; vanilla and milk chocolate; sublime and nuanced hop bitterness; boozy. Heavy body; oily; huge residual sugar presence; sweet mouthfeel.

The can lists lactose and maple syrup as key ingredients, and they're here in spades. The beer definitely comes in on the sweet side and borders on the cloying. However, some of that may be attributed to the heavy maple flavor presence. The ABV is fairly well hidden for 10.0%. This beer is very tasty but is undeniably a sipper.

3.18/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Initial impressions from a can:

10% ABV. "Contains Lactose + Maple." "Stout."

HEAD: ~3cm in height. Tan head. Sticks around a good while for a 10% ABV beer - ~10+ minutes.

BODY: Opaque brown-black. No yeast/lees are visible within,

AROMA: Obvious maple. Malty sweetness. Hazelnut. Faint peanut butter. A scintilla of roast.

Suggests a maple sugar-driven sweet stout with enough sweetness to make it a dessert beer but not so much it seems cloying. Lacks any overt hoppy, yeasty, or spicy aromatics.

Aromatic intensity is mild for an imperial stout.

TASTE: The maple flavour has a nice subtlety to it, never overwhelming the beer, but the base beer doesn't offer a whole lot...dark malt sweetness, lactose sugar, hints of roast, scintillae of hazelnut and chocolate - imperial stouts need utmost complexity to stand out, and this doesn't bring much to the table.

I've experienced more authentic maple syrup notes in dark ales, but this one has a nicely executed maple flavour - more maple sugar than maple syrup , but nice.

It's a bit sweet; I think it could do without the lactose sugar to bring it into better balance.

ABV is pretty well disguised.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, heavy, full-bodied, thick, and weighty on the palate. Not a chore to drink like many high ABV imperial stouts, but it ain't what the kids call "crushable."

OVERALL: It's a nice little maple stout but not one I'd buy again what with Dieu Du Ciel and Founders regularly putting out better. Overpriced for what it is, but I'll enjoy finishing the cans I got on sale.

16oz can, snifter glass. Usual dark black body, brownish hue, short retention and lacing on a 1 finger head. Smells and tastes like any other Untitled Art stout- the same malt bill and yeast, presumably. There is a fair bit of maple sweetness, however, but that's probably about the only difference than any other stout they've made. Medium bodied, good carbonation, substantial and slightly syrupy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pouring from a 16 oz. can into a snulip glass, this beer pours out like coffee and forms black in be glass. A pinky width of dense, caramel colored bubbles form a crown.

The nose brings in huge maple; very reminiscent of the collab they did with Angry Chair. That maple sweetness tangles with caramel as well.

The taste comes in with maple before melding into charred chocolate notes. A little bit of dark bitter bakers chocolate as well. Toasted caramel, pancake batter.

The mouthfeel is full; not the thickest ever, but not lacking a good feeling. Sweetness lingers after. Somewhat bitter to cut through the sweetness, but still pretty smooth.

Overall, this is a solid stout. A lot of sweetness showing through, without relying on it to be the only aspect.

Poured 16oz into tulip. Coffee black with a light tan 2.5 finger head. Slowly fades and leaves a collar and nice lacing. Notes of rich chocolate, cocoa, maple syrup, molasses and also subtle notes of lactose with vanilla. This is on the sweeter side with all the maple syrup, pancakes, molasses, but some of the roasted malts break it up with some dark chocolate notes. It's a sipper and pretty good if you enjoy pastry stouts. Smooth, creamy, and full bodied along with soft carbonation. Pretty good milk stout with the a nice maple syrup and dark chocolate combination.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Great head production, retention, and lacing all around.

Nose features plenty of classic stout notes of brown sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee, and red grapes, but the maple swoops in and adds a wonderful complement, sweet and mildly woody.

Sweeter up front on the palate than the nose implies, with plenty of maple character. Around mid-palate, more woody tones emerge, as well as coffee and chocolate. Throughout, maple, brown sugar, toffee, and dates provide a rich, sweet experience.

Creamy, smooth, full bodied but light drinking for 10% ABV.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a two finger creamy tan head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is maple, dark chocolate and vanilla.

T - The taste is maple, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, raisins and light roasted malts.

M - Full body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty imperial stout. The maple adds a big sweetness making this a slow sipper.

A little too sweet for my taste, especially after it warms. Nice brown highlights on the body and nose is has chocolate and some nut hints. Mouthfeel is creamy and luscious, but a little too much so after half a glass.

16 ounce can into snifter, canned on 3/19/019. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy khaki head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, maple syrup, molasses, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, and dark/brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/black/bready malts, lactose, maple syrup, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, maple syrup, molasses, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, and dark/brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate pine, herbal, woody, grassy, peppery hops; and roast/charred bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, maple syrup, molasses, toffee, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, dark/brown bread/crust, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/black/bready malts, lactose, maple syrup, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with an awesome hop/char bitter/sweet balance; and no cloying, acrid, astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, fairly sticky/chalky, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Mild increasing warmth of 10%, with no booze lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic flavored imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/black/bready malts, lactose, maple syrup, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the ABV, with the mellowly bitter/charred/drying finish. Amazing balance of super rich malts, maple syrup, and lactose; with balancing earthy hops, and restrained fruity yeast notes. Light residual sweetness with lingering hop/char bitter dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding dessert style example as expected. Not overly sweet or bitter/charred either way.

From the growler via Jungle Jim's Fairfield in a snifter. This robust beast pours a
murky blackish brown with a nice head of khaki foam that subsides to a thick ring,
thin wafting pool, and displays very nice lacing. Nose of a chocolate maple cream
candy with some dark cocoa and light char notes mingling with dark fruit. Flavors
follow the nose but exceed in flavor with a char touched maple over dark fruited
notes of black and raspberries drenched in rich cream and dark cocoa with hints
of dark coffee and caramel. Nice mouth feel; full body, medium light carbonation,
and a rich maple and cocoa finish with hints of cream and brulee.

Overall, a SOLID brew from a great collaboration.

Cheers!
