Porsche dark brown with a medium light brown head. Aroma is maple syrup, coffee, and rich - almost chocolatey malts. Taste is very smooth & silky coffee going to rich roasted malts and finishing with maple syrup and coffee bitterness. This one is a true ride.

Draft at MBCP day. Nose is a ton of coffee and maple. Lots of maple. Did I mention maple. Coffee is moderately acidic and slightly too much roast. Still a very good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 Bottle thanks to Countbeer. Black pour with almost no head. Aroma is so nice, rich milk chocolate, cinnamon, pepper, tons of espresso, vegetal espresso notes. Taste is rich, so decadent, great coffee flavors, milk chocolate, coconut, lovely caramel sweetness. Palate is full bodied, but not cloying. Really tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Updated: tap at 2015 mbcp fest. Wow, they’ve improved this beer a ton. Huge maple, coffee on the nose. Taste is naple, fresh coffee, chocolate, so syrupy and smooth. First rating: Tap at Funky Buddha’s 2nd year anniversary. Black with brown hues along the edges--like black coffee. Nose is coffee, maple, booze, smoke. Taste is the same with a rough bitter finish. Okay mouthfeel, but could use a little more body.

22 oz. bottle 36/50. Pours a clear dark brown/cola color with a small tan head. The nose has big maple and brown sugar with additional smoky malts, roast, coffee and light nuttiness. The flavor has the same big maple and brown sugar, roasted coffee, and some smoky malts. There was a small amount of a lactose sourness going on with this which distracted a bit, but was overall pretty good.
