bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015. new bomber bottle from the latest release. poured one of the most dark oily black colours iíve ever seen on a imperial stout, with a dark mocha coloured head that stays on forever. with some nice lacing on the side of the glass. while pouring the nose is hit with an incredible dark roasted espresso smell, followed by sweet dark roasted malts, sticky syrup. toasted almonds, sweet bakers chocolate, mocha. really just smells like a morning breakfast pancake covered with dark coffee maple. the smell is just a clear 10 out of 10. however the taste can not follow the nose. there is still that dark chocolate coffe roast, with vanilla, and maple syrup, and maybe a bit overpowered by the coffee. but there is missing something. the mouthfeel is thick and viscious. and the look keeps amazing untill the last sip. glad i finally got to try this one

Yesterday at the 2015 release. L: Very dark, no light gets through this one. As the beer moves around the glass, it coats and sticks to the side, pretty sure my chalice is permanently brown. Thin caramely head with good retention. S: Huge maple and coffee nose. The entire taproom smelled like brunch during the release. Most aromatic beer I have had. T: Maple not as big as nose would suggest, but still huge and controlling. The roasty coffee comes through amazingly as well, chocolately roasty, not bitter roasty. The beer is extremely smooth, would not guess it is a 12% stout. MF: Amazing. Absolutely perfect viscosity/thick feel for a non BA stout. Overall: Hands down the best adjunct stout Iíve ever had. The bottle count on this is significantly higher that the last run, so get your hands on one if you can. Another heavy hitter from TG.

Fantastic beer. Tastes like breakfast in a glass! Aroma was boozy when cold but was nothing but maple, coffee, and pancakes after it warmed. Taste was same with a crazy amount of body. Delicious!

On tap at Dexters during Great Taste Eve. Big thick black body. Huge aroma of coffee. Slick sticky mouthfeel. Hell, this beer is very sticky. Taste was huge coffee. Canít understate how much coffee flavor is in there. Probably more than the average extra dark roast coffee from the local coffee cafe. Has lots of sweet maple flavor to cut through the coffee. One thing I didnít like was that is was kind of tart. This might have been the coffee though. Still, I didnít care for the tart taste.

GTMW...obviously good, but not crazy. Super coffee and spice aroma...flat black color, taste is supper coffee and spice. Palate is really chalky...not my thing. Would seek out again...but not stand in a fest line...much less trade big.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2015 From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a viscous and tar-like black with a thin dark brown head that settles to a small ring and offers some great staining on the glass. The aroma is all coffee up front and absolutely beautiful. There is a great complexity of maple, a little bit of green oak and vanilla. A fudgy chocolate backs everything up. It smells like a fudge. The taste is unbelievable. Heavy coffee, that unbelievable maple, a great chocolate, moderate vanilla, and a light bourbon presence. This baby tastes like a maple-soaked coffee fudge. My god. The mouth feel is unbelievable. Itís like chewing fudge. Thick, viscous, with a soft carbonation. This baby just coats the mouth and refuses to leave. The aftertaste is all maple. Sweet, delicious, unbelievable. Best liquid Iíve ever had in my mouth, hands down.

sarro (129) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Tap at GTMW Aug 2015. Pours an inky black with mocha lined heading. Nose is mostly maple accompanied by a bit of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste is subdued dark chocolate, strong organic maple character (as opposed to extract or flavoring), and finishes with coffee and slight acidity. Body seems thin and over carbonated, but even with all that said it was quite a treat! 9/4/15 rerate: Tried from tap at release with appropriate carbonation and a much better experience overall.
