Bomber shared with friends. Dark thick pour, good carbonation. Aroma has subtle hints of maple, chocolate and coffee bean. While this is a good imperial stout I was hoping the maple would be a little more prominent.

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.

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.

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

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!

750, thanks to Matt for opening. Bitter, roasty malt, coffee beans, touch of sweetness. Touch of maple, but I wouldnt say that plays a leading role. Decent, although a bit boring not seeing the hype.

Liquide très foncé et son petit anneau de mousse. Son nez, fabriqué par le café, le bois brûlé, le chocolat, le caramel teinté par l’érable, est traversé par des parfums de fruits noirs comme les mûres, les bleuets ou les raisins. Le goût est similaire mais moins vibrant, plein d’une torréfaction qui s’accoste sur une petite douceur d’érable et de petites baies qui transpirent une certaine acidité. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps moyen-fort avec des bulles molles et une texture huileuse. La finale est toute en robustesse de grains noirs. Un bon stout qui n’a cependant rien de renversant. Modérément facile à boire. Ceci dit, agréable autour d’un feu.

On tap @ Lawson’s Farmers Market.

Appearance: Black with a medium beige head and little lacing.

Aroma: Espresso coffee, ashes, roasted malts, vegeral notes and light maple/caramel notes.

Taste: Medium sweetness with a burst of espresso coffee, light acidic presence from the roasted malts, maple notes and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Oily. A bit chewy. Light alcohol warmth. Espresso finish.

Overall: Rather heavy Imperial Stout considering the abv, but the balance isn’t bad. Quite flavorful with nice espresso features and an interesting maple presence. Tasty.

On tap at the brewery anniversary bottle release. Very opaque black pour, nice head. Aroma is very coffee, roasted coffee beans. Taste is bitter, roasty, tons of coffee, nice espresso flavor, woody, charred grain, light maple. Palate is full bodied, good carbonation. Heavy, but decently drinkable. Good stuff.
