Bottle at THT. Black with light brown bubbly head. Sweet chocolate, rum, lots of spices, vanilla, licorice, cinnamon buns, molasses. Quite sweet with a nice roasted bitter finish. Full bodied with sticky feel and soft carbonation. Nice stuff.

rxeight (2033) - 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 (1426) - 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 (1235) - 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 (2769) - 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.

Bottle (375 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks!

Appearance: Black with a medium dark brown head, low retention and some lacing.

Aroma: Quite boozy at first but it then settles down a bit with rum, brown sugar, oak, maple syrup (quite sugary), roasted malt, moderate spiciness and light fruitiness.

Taste: Sweet, sugary and boozy with rum, brown sugar, moderate acidity, roasted malts/coffee, maple syrup and oak.

Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. A bit syrupy mouthfeel. Sticky maple syrup finish. Boozy and alcohol warmth.

Overall: Not super well balanced, too boozy and sweet for my liking but I can see why someone would like this one as it’s really flavorful. I’m not the biggest fan of either maple syrup or rum so this one started with two strikes.

JBPortland (1293) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 25, 2015
375ml bottle pours oily black brown with small dark tan head. Nose is chocolately roast, light spice, maple, touch of herbal sweetness, hint of mint. Taste is similar with a wonderfully creamy smooth palate that sits so soft on the mouthfeel, fudgey chocolate, maple, roast, well integrated barrel spice, vanilla cream. Finishes with some sweetness and a continuation of the palate, chocolate spice with bits of fruit and herbal vanilla. Wow this is good.
