duft: karamelmalt. en meget underlig tung duft som jeg ikke kan beskrive, ellers sød, svag kaffe toner, smag: brød, brændt malt, sødme, en smule kikse smag, meget sødme i øllet. stor og tung øl

Mikkeller & Friends. Bottle share with Fonefan, Rlgk and ChrisO. Opaque black brown beer, big pale tan head. Palate is airy and minerally crisp. Smooth dry dark malts, touch of licorice and coffee. Mild spice and vague dark fruits. Not getting a big maple vibe, more is the pity, this could do with.sweetening up. Light dry finish.

daje (2043) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Black body with a nice beige head. Aroma of caramel, oak, roasted malt. Taste of fresh roasted coffeee beans, toffee, vanilla, smoke. High viscosity, and a nice staying sweetness through the vanilla and coffee aftertaste. Very nice!

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Bottle @ home. Black pour with a HUGE tan head. Smells gross. Green apple, pickles, and bleach. Super oaky. Slight maple sweetness, lots of roast, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet pickles, roasted malt, and candied apple. This is terrible. Oak, booze, and a touch of maple syrup on the finish. Scours the tongue. No thanks.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Black pour with a brown head. The aroma and flavor have some big, heavy roasted malt notes as well as some chocolate and a bit of pine, or some other resinous, dank note. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Habanero (2470) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2014
Bottled. Poursblack with an average, fair lacing, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and slightly roasted malt. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carb. An excellent strong porter.

Ataraxia (342) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Black, opaque, dense cappuccino froth. Malt chocolate, hints of maple syrup, sweetened coffee, and toffee. Quite sweet, but not in a heavy or viscous manner, followed with a lighter woody twang. Creamy but disappointingly thinner than expected, and well carbonated. Finish is a little dry, bitter, and mildly boozy.

375. Thanks, M! Pours a heavy and opaque jet black with a dense and creamy tan head. Odd sweet nose; there’s residual sugar competing with a nice natural maple scent. The maple is complex and there’s a surprisingly tart hint in the background that throws things off. Not an infection, not metallic. Smells like something from the maple I would say. But it keeps it from being a coherent beer. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Roasty sweet malt sugar with intense maple syrup on the mid palate. Long tangy sweet finish.

Have to say that adding a splash of St Bernardus Abt 12 to this took it from being a nice curiosity to being a near-masterpiece.
