750ml bottle, left overs from the 2013 Culmination Fest. Pours black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, maple, black roasted malt and some smokey char. Flavor is bitter cocoa, strong roasted/burnt malt, light maple sweetness and some alcohol heat. Full body with prickly carbonation. Pretty good, the roasted malt is very strong and brings the drinkability down for me.

Bottle. Black pour with a thick, very dark tan head that slowly craters out into the glass. Aroma is clean, dry roast, chocolate, cocoa powder, maple, and perhaps some darker raisin notes. Taste is chocolate and clean roast with complimentary maple giving way to heavier malt toward the finish and then . . . poof, it quickly finishes with a light puff of cocoa and hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is very interesting - light and airy in some spots and a more substantial and coating and others. Well made beer. Very nice.

Bottle shared by beace at one of the events (2011, notes). Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. The aroma and flavor have intense roasted malt and coffee, caramel, surprisingly the maple is very subtle, this really comes off as a fairly well done imperial stout, but not a gimmicky maple thing. The abv shows a touch, but this is pretty good.

22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits and caramel - not really getting any of the maple. Flavour brings out heavy roasted malt upfront, some dry wood, and a hint of the maple sweetness. Heavily roasted with a dry body. Almost no hint of maple at all, surprisingly. Low drinkability but pleasant flavours . Good stuff.

Heavy thick syrupy. Color is very dark. Nose is of roasted coffee and chocolate, maple syrup. Taste is much the same as the nose. It is a bit sweet for me but not horribly. I wouldn’t want an entire bottle to myself again.

PhillyCraft (3128) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2013
Tap at event, pitch black color, with medium coffee head, light lacing. Mouthfeel was pretty sticky, notes are roasty malt, strong coffee, maple wood, hops, molasses, oats and charred flavors. Medium to full body. Very warming on a cold vt night.

Nice very dry stout for its high abv. Lots of cocoa and a bit of dark fruitiness.

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, a little maple syrup, and light hops. Flavor the same, with a lot of maltiness and the right amount of maple. Thicker texture. A pretty good imperial stout.

Rich mountains of roasted malt and chocolate jump from my glass. Smooth, creamy body. Tasty blend of ingredients, lightly accented by sweet maple. Really nice, and better than any of the BA versions IMO.
