Draft at Ashley’s Founders event. Pours opaque black with light brown head that stays. Big stout roasty, maple bourbon smoothy, earthy coffee. A lot going on but simply delicious.

On tap at BGH. Incredibly smooth. Can taste the maple but very subtle. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at 2015 GTMW, I’ve 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 doesn’t 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 don’t 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 doesn’t have the same magic it once did after having the likes of Mornin’ Delight. Still a great beer; try adding a little BLiS syrup to thicken the mouthfeel; it’s fantastic!

Pours black with a dark brown head. Aromas of Burbon, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Strong Burbon flavors mixed with chocolate and coffee and strong alcohol warming.

ctipping (298) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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. It’s 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 didn’t 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.

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 doesn’t overdo things thanks to a soft carbonation. Finishes lean rich sticky malt. I can’t get over how sticky this is. Solid work although not as nourishing as I’d thought.
