Lukasmh (649) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2015
Tap. Pours a fat oily sirupy pitch black with huge ever-producing tan creamy head, you can feel the fatty bacon. Aroma is crazy, like a vulgar complete morning meal. Get all the coffee, salty bacon, extreme fudge, maple, wood, sugary, puddersukker, fudge and so savory. Roasty malts, vanilla, oak and whisky. Itís so sweet, but gets balanced by roasty and whisky. Fudge, cake, bacon, savory and salty bacon. Sugary maple. So thick and sticky. Yet loads of coffee and toast. Dark fruits, coffee, fresh press coffee, tons of roasty malts. Spicy whisky with dark fruit notes. Woody finish. So big. Sticky. So long finish. Yesyesyes! So much too much, love it!

Aroma: intense coffee, milk chocolate. Appearance: black, hardly any head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: milk chocolate continues, some caramel, doesnít give the high ABV away. Overall: amazing Imperial Porter, excellent palate. Pint at CBC, Clapham.

Leighton (14703) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Keg at Craft Beer Co. Clapham - London, during Route CBC. Pours clearish, oily black-brown with a creamy tan head. The nose holds baking cocoa, burnt wood, earth. Big sweet flavor with notes of maple syrup, chocolate, moderate roasted malts, light dry wood. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Finishes with a bit of alcohol warmth, more maple syrup, torched wood, cocoa. Great stuff overall. Nice complexity, and still very drinkable. Outstanding.

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at Route CBC. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is soft, rich, pancakes & maple syrup, caramel, toffee, vanilla and toasty brown sugars. The taste is rich, slick, decadent, roasted malt, pretty sweet, maple syrup, pancakes, toffee, cheap filter coffee, wood and vanilla with some warmth on the finish. Full body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. I really like the aroma, but the taste is a touch sweet and sticky. A pretty great beer nonetheless.

rxeight (1973) - Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2015
22 oz bomber from the August 2015 release. Dark brown pour. Very little head. Intense coffee aroma. Some maple and milk chocolate. Coffee is the perfect flavor for me. Bold, dark and roasty. Taste is strong coffee and maple sweetness. Very little bourbon or barrel in there. I would not say thatís a complaint because the beer is so damn amazing for what it is. More bourbon barrel would take away from the amazing coffee and maple. So if you are looking for a great ba stout, this might be the wrong one to try, but if you want possibly the worlds best coffee stout this would be hard to beat.

From notes. Enjoyed on September 19 at Travisí house. Tommy brought this gem, and I will thank him incredulously. This poured from a 22 oz bottle the way a heavy stout would. It was used motor oil gulping out of the bottle. There was a dark tan finger of head that slowly dissipated to a small film. The aromas. Holy hell. There is an amazing maple dominance. There were hints of chocolate, light roast, and a barely-there coffee presence. No bacon or smoke on this one. The bourbon is a little present on the end, but thatís what you want. The flavor is great. Again, the maple is the heavy hitter covering up a nice coffee in there. Chocolate, vanilla notes, and light bourbon are afterthoughts. The maple is sweet and sticky and the coffee is the only other pickable flavor. The mouth feel is light. Itís soft carbonation makes it nice and creamy, but it is pretty light. The aftertaste is lingeringly maple heavy with a light coffee dragging out the finish. This thing is what Iíd imagine Morniní Delight Light would be. Excellent.

Bottle. Black with tan head. Massive maple aroma. Taste follows so much maple the medium body was only down side. If it was thicker it would be right with mornin delight.

Funky Buddhas best beer by a good margin. This is what a good porter should taste like. Just an amazing brew. Cant wait for bottles to be released of this.
