Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium creamy dark brown head, good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, maple, rum. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, roasty, rum and maple syrup, cocoa and molasses. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty damn good.

Bulk_Carrier (3637) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 30, 2016
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with a quickly dissipating off white to tan head that left no lacing. The smell had sweet maple rolling into the subtle sweet milk chocolate and roasty to bitter coffee tones. The taste was semi-sticky sweet through the combination of the maple and the milk chocolate. Boozy heat is mild, but there. Dry milk chocolate aftertaste with a robust semi-sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sticky sipping quality about it. Carbonation feels good allowing the stickiness from the maple hit my tongue nicely, almost cloying, but tame. Overall, really awesome Imperial Stout that I would love to have again.

rxeight (2516) - Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Small format bottle. Black pour. Heavy on the roasted malts. Lots of sticky sweetness but not really a pronounced maple flavor. Definitely a rum presence.

beernbourbon (1537) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to a Brandon. Pour is black with a tan head. Aroma and flavor roasted malt. Lightly Sweet and bourbon. A little sweet. Not too crazy.

dresden (1435) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle generously sent by Tommy. Deep black, chocolate, booze and roast malt aroma. Sickly sweet with a big hit of booze. Some barrel and some chocolate,a lot of sweet sugars though. It’s good, but even a 12 oz bottle is a lot.

Lukaduke (2990) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a deep burnt sienna color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of sweet kahlua undertones with soft cocoa powder, malted maple and underlying roast. The integration of rum flavors into this already delicious maple stout is seamless and delicious ! Nutty, sweet, boozy and did I mention delicious !

(375 ml. April 2015) Merci à JulienHuxley pour le partage! Un stout brun foncé aux contours rouges. Une tête qui laisse des traces. Des parfums forts doux de rhum, de caramel et de sirop d’érable avec des malts noirs et un souffle d’alcool chaud qui tentent, à l’unisson, de faire oublier un peu de cet air trop sucré. En bouche, un stout très doux avec son rhum et sa sève d’érable travaillée. Encore une fois, une mise en place d’un alcool floral et piquant afin de faire passer cette grande impression sucrée. Au palais, un liquide de moyenne densité qui montre un pétillement standardisé et une texture qui finit par être légèrement collante. Une finale douce et chaude sans tomber dans les extrêmes.
