Courtesy of Gunhaver. Pours black with no head. Holy shit this beer smells good. Huge aroma of maple syrup complimented by chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, a touch of booze, and more maple syrup. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium full mouthfeel with smooth alcohol. Delicious!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
July 25, 2015. On tap at Mission Dolores, got the last 2 pours. #3000.
Black with a medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma is intense, yet balanced, with fresh ground coffee, maple syrup, toffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, warming bourbon alcohol. ,
Taste is medium sweet, soft roasted bitterness. Finish is smooth bitter and roasted coffee and dark chocolate, sweet maple syrup, toffee, vanilla and some warming bourbon notes. Full bodied, creamy, sticky texture, soft carbonation.
Glad to finally try this one, been a big want for a long time and getting the two last pours with my girlfriend after a long day in the car was great. Tried it side by side with KBS and CBS was much smoother and more balanced, the maple syrup complemented the coffee in a great way. Amazing!

Sampled on tap at the Knick. Nie bourbon nose with oak and maple. Sweet and vapory. Dark brown-black opaque with thin tan head. Medium-chewy body with medium-light carbonation. Sweet with chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and maple. Alcohol. A little rough on the woody notes, boozy and overly sweet finish and mildly cloying after.

This big flavored beer will jack you in the jaw. Pours a jet black. Aromas of espresso/chocolate, maple bourbon hints and roasted malts. Taste jumps out with dark roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate malt with a nice bitter bite. Finishes with a sweet boozy tail...

Very sweet and creamy. Deep roasted flavor with maple accents. Maybe the best beer I’ve tried. Perfect mouthfeel. Wish they made this more available.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
