Bottle shared by Jcwattsrugger. Pours black with mud coffee brown head. Nose/taste of maple, roasted chocolate malt, vanilla and coffee. Good roast character in the taste. Mouth feel starts creamy with a dry cocoa finish. More maple in the nose than taste, but it’s definitely there. Alcohol is completely hidden. Medium body.

hopscotch (10011) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention. The bouquet is milky chocolaty and nutty – big cocoa, toasted nuts and light vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and subdued carbonation. The flavor presents sweetened espresso and dark cocoa. Very roasty and burnt. Finishes bittersweet and carbonaceous. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
17-12-11 On tap: Noire, sans mousse et faible effervescence. Puissants arômes de café avec une touche de sirop d’érable. Tanche vers le très sucrée, avec une amertume sous le thème du café. Les saveurs de café sont très très prononcées et la touche de sirop d’érable bien présente et en douceur. Corps asser puissant avec une texture légèrement ronde. Finale asser longue sur le thème encore une fois du café. Déçu.

Ughsmash (7331) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2011
750mL bottle, #20/72. Poured very near black with just about as much dark tan sitting on top. The aroma picked up maple, maple, and more maple, with vanilla and sweeter chocolates accenting.. a little peppery alcohol and greener hoppage on the back of the nose.. more green and a touch buttery right on the back.. all in all very enjoyable. The flavor was also centered around the maple, with chocolate and molasses down there too.. peppery alcohol and some green, slightly buttery notes around.. the sweetness still stood out, and I really dug it. Heavier-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. sticky and surprisingly hopped, but I enjoyed it.. excellent beer!

arminjewell (8514) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle # 20/72, big, big thanks to Jason, big want of mine. Thick oily black pour with tan head, lacing well with nice alcohol legs. Aroma has notes of big maple, sweet caramel notes, chocolate/coffee notes with more maple. Wow, the maple jumps out like crazy. Big maple and dark fruit, some notes of toffee, vanilla, chocolate, with big chocolate and maple in the finish. Wow, I love these types of beers, and this beer hit the maple to a tee. Awesome.

GT2 (9265) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
750mL C&C courtesy of noodleuser. The pour is a dark brown to near black with a deep tan, sheen head. Nose upfront is full of olives and saltwater along with mild apple/acetaldehyde. As it warms, the nose gains smoke, bacon, rich caramel. Much better. The taste is olive, salty/briny, lemony tart finishing with carbon paper and cardboard. No maple character.
