3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at 2015 GTMW, Iíve been chasing this one ever since I started to get into beer, waited for about 25 minutes in line to try it, and I probably could of tried others at the fest that I was more impressed with, pours black with a very thin light brown head, the aroma has a slight amount of vanilla with a good amount of roast and chocolate, the flavor has a decent amount of chocolate and roast, the maple doesnít really show as much as I was hoping it would, mouthfeel is a bit thin, so this stuff is good, but not mind blowing good. If this was blind up against other unknown BA beers I think this would be in the middle. Glad I finally got to try this, but somewhat let down by it.

Much better on tap than from the bottle. I donít know for certain how much of it is an actual change in the beer and how much is a palate shift due to more intense beers being continuously available, but this doesnít have the same magic it once did after having the likes of Morniní Delight. Still a great beer; try adding a little BLiS syrup to thicken the mouthfeel; itís fantastic!

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Originally reviewed 1/3/2015. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Dark black body with a one-finger khaki head. Decent retention and decent lacing. Nice wisps of bubbles on top of the beer.
Strong coffee aroma, as with KBS. Almost too strong, but the stout shines through enough to temper the coffee. Delicious roast and some maple sweetness in the back.
Taste is just about perfect. Dark coffee that blends seamlessly with the stout flavors. Itís difficult to discern where the coffee ends and the roasted malt begins. Another seamless transition into a maple finish. Finishes slightly sweet, with still a hint of coffee bitterness.
Perfect body. I could gulp this down if I didnít want to savor every drop of it. Low, but appropriate carbonation. The flavors linger long enough to make me want to take another sip.
I need more of this. Holy crap.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark and ringed still brown head. Nose is boozy, cinnamon and wet tobacco. Initial taste is lean sweetness, super malty and a firm coconut. Dark rye breadiness and a lively coffee bitter tang. Lively enough. Settles into a sticky sweetness but doesnít overdo things thanks to a soft carbonation. Finishes lean rich sticky malt. I canít get over how sticky this is. Solid work although not as nourishing as Iíd thought.
