on tap at Twenty Tapís birthday party. Keg kicked in 13 minutes and rightfully so. Phenomenal beer. Aroma of rich coffee, bourbon. Taste is super rich, coffee with awesome maple sweetness. nice, velvety mouthfeel. the espresso flavor lingers in the finish in an outstanding way. jet black with dark mocha head. top to bottom one of the best beers iíve ever had.

Draft in 8 oz pours. Full bodied, sweet and rich. Pours thick and black. Coffee, bourbon and maple syrup sweetness...one of the all time best! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[6624-20140815] Bottle. Sweet roasted grains aroma has a hint of spices. Black cola brown body with a quick foamy tan head. Minty chocolate roasted grains flavour has a weird liqueur thing. Full body. Glad to try but a bit odd. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

8 oz pour on draft. The Canadian Breakfast stout pours The aroma is rich chocolate, woods, maple and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is very sweet with the chocolate and woods shining through initially and vanilla and maple syrup on the back end. The maple syrup is evident well into the aftetaste. Overall this is an amazing beer. If you find this beer you should have it.

Loads of bourbon, maple, oak and dark chocolate up front. Smooth coffee throughout. Notes of vanilla, toffee, espresso and cream. Lives up to the hype, and then some!

On tap at the Founders tap takeover at Coopers in Madison. Poured thinner than I thought it would. Dark body with a creamy head. Sweet caramel aroma. Not much coffee smell. Sticky sweet taste. Lots of maple. Very smooth. Never really had a beer like this. Some chocolate and coffee tastes. Very delicious!!!!

On tap - review from memory of earlier this afternoon. Taste is maple syrup, rich chocolate, some alcohol in the background. Love the maple and chocolate, very nicely balanced flavor. Very smooth, full bodied. Starts a bit sweet, but dryness takes over quickly. Finishes extremely dry. (Seriously. Maybe it was just me, but I walked away from that pour with full-blown cotton mouth. Iíve never experienced anything like that before with beer.)

Bottle. Pours an oily black, small tan head. Aromas loaded with chocolate and maple sweetness. Roasted coffee, vanilla and a slight char. Make an appearance. Taste is very rich chocolate...creamy milk chocolate, dark chocolate and bitter bakers chocolates...lots of depth. The coffee interplays nicely and keeps this from getting too sweet. Nice touches of oak, vanilla and maple push forward. Some roast, char, marshmallow, anise and alcohol step up towards the finish. A nice, sweet maple booze pushes this a long, chocolately finish. Very smooth, very rich.

Thanks to Poole. This has a rich chocolate and wood aroma. Lots of sweet. Maple faded but compliments chocolate nicely.

Bottle opened in Nov. 2014. Pours oily black with quarter inch of head. Aroma is dark chocolate, raisin. Taste has those elements along with a strong anise flavor that was surprising. Very sweet (not sure how it tasted initially upon bottling) and the syrup adds a unique element. Creamy chocolate is there but I didnít pick up much of the coffee. Glad to finally add this to my list.
