12oz bottle shared during Christmas Eve with friends into Utopias glass.

Pours black, mocha head, thin ring, wisps on top. Nose is rich milk chocolate, coffee, burnt sugars, some bakers chocolate. Flavor is maple syrup, chocolate brownies, light oak, smooth alcohol, caramel, and coffee. Full body, rich, light carbonation, sweet & creamy finish.

This is one of those beers that came along in 2013, was super-hyped, and delivered. I easily finished half of the bottle and shared the rest and was still left wanting more. Very rich & decadent but very smooth and easy to drink for such a huge beer.

Ataraxia (300) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Opaque black pour, almost no lacing. Aroma is more subdued compared to Mornin’ Delight. mildly sweet, vanilla, bourbon-soaked oak, maple syrup, espresso, dark chocolate, toasted marshmallow, sticky caramel, and pancake batter. Sweeter in taste with greater emphasis on the maple syrup, caramel, and pancake batter. Extremely slick, just coats the inside of your mouth. Smooth, creamy, and full-bodied without being overly heavy. As with Mornin’ Delight, the slight ’twang’ in the finish prevents it from a perfect score. Such an amazing blend of aromas and tastes.

I definitely though this would not be as good as the hype, however, a tremendous job. Great blend of chocolate, roast, coffee, vanilla, wood, maple and toffee. The whiskey comes through on the finish, but not overbearing. Well done.

BVery (5612) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Sampled at Darkness Day 2013. Super dark pour. Rich licorice and roasted malt nose and taste. Very nice but overhyped. Really good though. I’d like to re-try this in a better setting.

Dr_MedievAle (107) - USA - OCT 24, 2013
bottle # 280 of 300. poured thick as synthetic pancake syrup, but darker. creamy khaki head. the nose on this is really impressive, if overwhelming: hot pancakes drenched with loads and loads of maple syrup. soft/woody bourbon undertones, bitter dark chocolate, and almost too-sweet syrup flavor dominate the taste buds. full bodied, thick and sticky with a long finish. this is a delicious beer but it was difficult for me to just finish one 12oz bottle. it isn’t as life-changing as many of the reviews lead you to believe, though. except for the possibility that it will give you diabetes.

great beer that lives up to the hype....strong nose that almost puts me in a diabetic coma, light coffee, thick maple sour, bourbon, sweet but pungent... the taste is balanced better not as sweet as the nose, more stout and bourbon, decadently awesome

Bottle 230/300 poured into snifter after having 15 minutes on the counter to warm from the fridge. A- Pours a viscous pitch black with a dark brown/mocha head about 1/4 inch high with insane retention for a stout. Detectable carbonation bubbles, but on the low side, as appropriate for style. Over two minutes, the head fades to a mocha ring around the edges of the glass. S- Mother of god- this smells like Vermont maple syrup aged in a bourbon barrel, dipped in chocolate, and wrapped with the tears of angels. Honestly though, the syrup sweetness with the wood notes really dominate, although the bourbon notes are just hanging out behind them. T- Maybe I am just riding the hype train, but this tastes absolutely amazing. A huge sweet maple sugar (think the little maple butter candies you can buy up in Vermont) followed by a super mellow bourbon barrel character mixed in with chocolate, caramel, and a balancing roast and bitter note. M- Thick. A bit more carbonation than I expected for this, but it works well with the beer. This is an oil slick of a beer, as it should be for the style. This is definitely a sipper, but I could (and will) drink a full 12 ounces in one sitting happily. O- This is by far the best tasting and smelling beer I have ever experienced. Insanely good, better than BAVDL and BCBS rare in my opinion. I am actually a bit upset I decided to open this bottle, because I don’t know if I will ever get it again. I guess I will be at the release if they release it in the future!
