COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer’s Choice, debuted at Great Taste of the Midwest 2011. A Russian Imperial Stout. Breakfast of champions, just add pancakes. Made with real maple syrup and a super secret brewers’ ingredient.

Backlog from RBSG 2014. Bottle shared by Adam I believe. Pour is stark black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasty and coffee with a dark chocolate undertone. The blend of all this in the nose was just amazing. All seemed to be there and work in harmony rather than fight for attention. Upon sampling the flavors are all intense and complimentary. Coffee, chocolate, light roast, but way short of burnt or astringent. A thick chewy mouthfeel, but not overly sweet or cloying. Didn’t really get much maple syrup, but otherwise this was a fantastic beer. Thanks!

Black color. Thin brown ring of head. Good bits of lace. Good chewy texture, bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet, good mild warmth, nothing bothersome at all. Wow, love that maple, and dark chocolate, and coffee roast. Hint of smoke. Oh my goodness, I love this aroma. Wow wow wow wow. Totally my style. Best stout I’ve had since the 1st stout that blew my mind, FBS. Such good shit here. Hint of savory smoke even. a little bit of a maple syrup covered sausage patty factor here. holy shit, so good.

Ferris (3002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle - Lots of dark roast coffee bean. Jet black with a rich brown head. Roast coffee, nice syrup sweetness to balance bitterness and a finish that will last the day.

Bottle. Again shared by the Adam. Thick black oily pour, mocha head. Aroma of maple syrup, coffee, and chocolate. Taste, chocolate, maple syrup, thick mouthfeel, smooth decadent finish. Wow.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle pours out with a deep dark-void like body that spins up some staining on the side of the glass and supports a minimal head. The aroma comes across as oily rich dark roasted coffee goodness that has an espresso sense to it and also has thin supporting snippets of chocolate and molasses. The taste is similar with rich oily dark roasted coffee to espresso blending into a pleasing mix of molasses, chocolate and dark roasted malts. This is very nectar like and rich and wonderful where the whole thing just comes alive and begs to be dispatched of in an unhurried fashion. Terrific sipper if there ever was one.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Sampled @ Woodshed 3.0! Dak, once again, came through with this one! Pitch black pour with a creamy caramel cap that left a dense coating inside the glass. Rich fudge, Canadian maple syrup, a light dusting of cinnamon, vanilla cake, graham crackers, and waffle batter. Like eating a See’s Candy Milk Chocolate Bordeaux. Breakfast in a bottle!

beechner224 (625) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Draft on Hunaphu day. Pours was black, with minimal head. Aroma of coffee and maple - yummy. Taste was equally great, maple, coffee, chocolate, thick in the mouth. Great beer. Probably the favorite from the day.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Gil! Black in color without any head. Viscous. Maple syrup, coffee, vanilla, and graham cracker on the nose. Toffee, a hint of peanut brittle, and plenty of chocolate. Nice bitter chocolate on the taste to balance out the sweet toffee, vanilla, and maple. Nice graham cracker, roast, and coffee, too. Well done all around. Another solid beer from Toppling Goliath.

> Sweeter creme brulee and maple stout

[ Bottle ][ Gil ][ 12oz ][ 10K+OT Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/3/14 ]
>> Huge thanks to Gil for the share! Copper wax. Pours inky sepia with low carbonation, no foam. Nose is creme brulee, raisin, marmite, chili pepper, smoke, no coffee (which may be a good thing). Taste is a bit sweet, Twizzlers, paper, bitter dark chocolate, Starbucks style mixed mocha concoction, maple, no coffee. Palate is semi dry and dusty. Creme brulee character is the highlight.

>!< no coffee, no carbonation, low bitterness
