Garrold (3778) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
On tap at Mule Bar, Winooski, VT. Deep, chestnut brown. Velvety, thin, glossy, mocha head that sticks all the way down the glass. Nose has caramel truffle. Fudge. Maple syrup. Chocolate fudge cake. The full works. Bit of a cheesecake tang to it. Taste is tangy, fruity, dark chocolate bitter. Light dryness. Some sweetness, but no way as much as the aroma might suggest. Silky palate. Drinks way under the ABV. Finishes long, truffly, chocolatey, light bitter. The sweetness kicks in right at the end. Super stuff.

Steve_0 (3742) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2015
From bottle at GABF 2015. Pour is deep brown with a small tan colored head and good lacing. Light maple, dark chocolate, espresso, some vanilla, light coconut, brown sugar and toffee in the Aroma. Taste is big dark cocoa, coffee, light maple, vanilla, toffee, caramel, and raisins. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Tasty stuff, but could really benefit from a little more body.

Very dark brown, minimal tan head. Aroma cocoa, dark sugars. Full body, some appropriate alcohol. Flavors of chocolate, espresso, a bit of maple. Strong of course but nice balance. Excellent.

beechner224 (1000) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle to the face. Pours black with tan head. Sweet aroma but not the maple I wanted. Taste is sweet, chocolate, some sweetness from the maple. Have had better maple stouts before.

Berard (571) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. This is a spring 2014 variant. Pours black with frothy tan head that lingers. Heavy cocoa flavor with exceptional boozyness for a non barrel aged variety. Typical Lawson's aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is wonderful, hints of maple, roasted malts, molasses. Flavor is slightly smokey, a bit astringent, but not bad. Overall a very nice beer. Thanks BJ!
