750ml bottle via trade with Leighton at RBWG 2014. Poured a great looking thicker pitch black body under a thick beige head. Aroma is burnt toast, burnt malts, charred maple. Good body, medium to fuller with average carbonation. Flavor of vanilla extract, charred oak maple barrel, vanilla, light chocolate, dark bread, sweet. Nice stuff.

750ml bottle. Huge thanks to dmac for sharing! Pours black in color with a small dark mocha head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, barrel, hints of maple sweetness, and booziness. Taste of dry wood, dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, sweet maple, barrel, and caramel. Very dry finish. Solid stuff.

Bouteille 750mL, millésime 2013. Noire avec une mousse qui s’estompe rapidement. Nez de cacao, grains torréfiés et une pointe de sucre. Bouche sur les mêmes notes, avec une emphase sur la torréfaction. Du milieu de bouche jusqu’à la finale, on retrouve le profil de l’eau d’érable, surtout persistant en finale. Corps moyen mais belle longueur.

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Shared with friends at Phatdog1’s house. Served only slightly chilled. Thick tan head when you swirl the stout around in the snifter. Dies to a thing ring after sitting. Chocolate malts sit on top of maple and molasses aroma. Taste is a smooth and roasty with the maple coming through more as sugar sweetness.. I would never pick out maple in this stout. Light smoke and ash notes. The body is a bit leaner then I was hoping for in a big imperial stout. The alcohol is total masked at this point. I’m wondering how much this changed over time because I never had it fresh. Anyhow, the stout in front of me is nice.

Thanks to Jason! Pours über dark black with a tan head. Certainly I get maple syrup, dark malt, licorice. The taste follows the nose with some char and dryness which works well with the maple flavors and nice dry ending. Medium body and decent carbonation - a bit thin for any imperial stout. A very nice beer.

Bomber poured into Lawson’s snifter. Jet black with a small mocha head that sticks around. Smell is bourbon, oak, vanilla, tobacco, chocolate. Taste is tobacco, chocolate, and char/roast. Alcohol is not present which is impressive for a 10%+ beer. Great stout, special thanks to Nick for picking thus up for me at the farmer’s market last April.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 25, 2013
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.
