Bottle. Thick, syrupy burnt brown; very little head. Aroma’s rich: maple, butterscotch, toffee, milk chocolate, coconut, vanilla. Flavor replicates this, a smooth and not-too-sweet blend. Thick, creamy body; prickly CO2. Very rich, flavorful brew, and I love maple, so.

750mL bottle purchased at the brewery in Chico. The aroma on this is fairly decadent with vanilla, sweet bourbon, and woody notes. I also get a little smokiness, too. Some ethanol is present retronasally. Inky, opaque black body with a medium somewhat rapidly dissipating brown head. This starts with a bit of a strange licorice flavor. Somewhat sweet and astringent. Bourbon hints in the middle. Finishes with a bit of a hot, ethanolic flavor. This is just a mess of a beer. Too boozy, too sweet, too meh.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks LitoIPA). Looks good; a fairly opaque very dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, oak, and mild notes of coffee and bourbon, all nicely balanced. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth for the abv with a medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Great beer.

Theydon_Bois (12925) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle split at LKS ’Beers of London’ Tasting, high up, 10/12/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with moderately appointed khaki spotting and edgework. Nose is maple syrup, toffee, chocolate, boozey notes. Taste comprises sweet licks, nutty, toffee fudge, chocolate, maple syrup cookies, coffee grinds. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough impy, the alcohol is very well disguised for a straight 13%!

davey101 (746) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2015
750 ml into a tulip. Pours a pitch black with a thin dark mocha edging. Nose is dark chocolate, light anise, vanilla and roasted coffee.Taste is oak, vanilla, and loads of dark chocolate and light roasted coffee beans. Warming booze but it’s hidden quite well. Maple isn’t very apparent but this is a damn good BA stout. Kind of like a milder BA Narwhal with some light coffee notes.

madvike (3108) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle - Pours black with a thin tan ring of head. Nose is hot, with lots of brown sugar, molasses, and bourbon. A bit of soy sauce. Taste is brown sugar and dry yeast, sweet dark bread malt, and lots of sweet barrel.
