Drank from a pint glass poured out of a bottle. Pitch black body with a sand colored bubbly head. Aroma is huggggge on coffee and a slight amount of maple syrup. Taste is overpowering coffee with a slight hint of chocolate. I hate coffee so my review is biased, but for coffee drinkers this is probably heaven.

Tap @ Founders for RBSG’10 - dark and canadian. Bourbony, maple syrup and espresso. Not as heavy as the KBS and perhaps more tasty. Still a heavy beer though.

Draft at Churchkey in DC. Poured a pitch black, very little head, dark tan. Aroma is WOW. Fantastic dried fruits, roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of maple permiate the air. The flavor is rich, smooth. Chocolate, roasted malts, maple syrup. Alcohol present on onset, but flavor mellows with time. This is certainly one of the best beers I have had in some time.

On tap at Founders. Reviewing from notes. Dark brown body with off white head. Smell is roasted and sweet. Taste is a great stout base with light maple and a little alcohol taste/burn. Body seems a little thin but this beer is amazing.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Tap at Aromas. Poured very dark with a small tan head. Nose is oak, vanilla, and light sweet notes. Taste is not as syrupy as I thought it would have been. Not nearly as boozy as the Kentucky version. Mouth is smooth and creamy. Overall, a nice imperial stout.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Draft at The Big Hunt. Pours thick and black with a dark tan head. Lots of maple syrup on the nose with notes of cream, vanilla and bourbon. The maple doesn’t quite come through as much on the flavor, but it does impart a noticeable sweetness when compared to the KBS or the regular Breakfast Stout. Coffee and chocolate with hint of bourbon, vanilla, and cream. Very complex, but still very drinkable even with the high ABV. Not quite the beer that KBS is, but still amazing.

Lucky enough to have this on draft while I was up in Madison for the Great Taste... Very dense dark black oily pour. Aroma is sweet with some slight maple notes, but this maple aspect comes though much more strongly in the taste. Sweet maple, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, coffee - its all here and more. Simply delicious. SUPER smooth and remarkably easy to drink - this one is dangerous! Will cherish every sip if I ever get to try it again. Fantastic brew.

bottle pours thick black, medium dark tan head. Aroma is strong with wood elements, maple, oak, thin vanilla. Flavor is very roasty, mild smoke, pouch tobacco, semi-sweet cocoa and oatmeal round it out. The maple syrup barrel lends more wood aroma and flavor then anything else. Nice.
