Pours a deep black color with excellent soft khaki colored head. Roasty aroma with syrupy sweet boozy tones. Thick and smooth yet light on the tongue; roasty with light chocolate notes a a moderate syrup sweetness. Warming going down with a touch of maple in the end. A fantastic, complex beer. Meets expectations. Notes: On tap at Aces & Ales for National Beer Day 7 Apr 16 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Aces and Ales. Dark brown, mahogany highlights and a big khaki foam. Oak, chocolate and whisky aromas. The body is big and creamy. Worth the wait. Dark malts are not bitter. Smooth and enticing. Wow!

From a bottle picked at Brawley’s Beverage several years ago, a real white whale in the beer world. Pours an opaque black with a minimal tan head. Nose is maple, coffee, cocoa and multiple dark fruits. The alcohol is not well disguised, but that’s not an issue with me. Taste was scrumptious, breakfast in a bottle. Highly recommended.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brn/blk with orange glints and a tan smear. Aroma is sort of maple bourbon. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate/maple/bourbon/earthy/ smooth burnt malt. Sort of dusty - dryer than expected.Smooth, tasty, chocolate bourbon finish. Delectable.

On draft at Global Brew EDW. This was out several years ago and I missed it then. So glad to get to have it now. Looks like a big stout. So much goodness going on here. Huge maple, monster roastiness, massive dark malts. Delicious. My only turn off is the alcohol. It is not hidden and is kind of in your face. Still, this is a really good beer. Glad I got to try it. Thanks for putting this out again.

8 oz pour. Holy wow! Dark black. Maple heaven...and i love maple. Sticky. Coffee. Pretty perfect. Start making more!! Best thing to come out of canada since John Candy. Not boozy, just totally drinkable. Im going to put maple in my coffee tomorrow. This totally lives up to hype. I find heaven and i can only have one because i need to drive home. ...reminds me of twilight zone episode where all guy wants to do is read and he steps on his glasses. .

8oz pour- great lacing smell is of the maple at the end of the great Java and malty goodness. Same with the taste except less maple in the taste. There’s a reason this is so sought after.
