Bottle shared by maximum12! Inky dark black pour, almost no carbonation and an aroma of bitter chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is also bitter dry chocolate, medium body and a little peat. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Oily black pour with a brownish head. Roasty chocolate, smoke, and a bit of maple sweetness. Big, bold, and terrific.

TheEpeeist (3672) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
25.4 oz bottle. Mahogany brown with receding tan bubbles. Nose is smoky chocolate, hay and prune. Maple is there but i wouldn’t have guessed it; more noticiable after a few sips. Tangy medium body, a bit chalky. Taste is espresso and dark chocolate with hints of maple syrup and burnt sugar emerging in the finish. It’s a nice brew but not enough flavor-packed to make it a standout.

Pours black with ruby hues...thin mocha head. Aroma has burnt wood, coffee, dark cocoa, and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows suit...adds a touch of dark fruit...touch if maple and charred wood are showcased nicely. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a dry, charre wood finish.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 Thanks to Adrian. Dark, foamy pour and a cool, old school label. I am upping my rating after having some on draft at the Trevere. Apparently this is made with maple sap added to the brew kettle, and the result is wonderful! The aroma is roasty, sweet, and full of grain and maple. The taste is smoky and malty, with lots of fresh maple flavor. There is also a little limey tang, molasses, and pumpernickel. It doesn’t get overbearing thou - stays fresh and delicious to the last drop. An awesome brew, and so far as I know, a unique one.

Bottle share, thanks guys. Pour is dark brown/pretty close to black with a small tan head that darkens into a slight orange as it dissipates. Aroma is of roasted coffee, burnt chocolate, earth, and espresso. Flavor is of burnt wood, ash, very bitter chocolate, and some slight sweetness from the maple. Alcohol is there but hidden well, not too complex but still good. Medium to heavy bodied.

Blind bottle shared. By Barrythebear, thanks Barry. Little smoke or roast there but no maple that I could pick up. I liked this but after knowing what it is I wished there was more maple.
