coachd (2177) - O'Fallon, Missouri, USA - MAR 22, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2021 Tons of maple and milk chocolate in the aroma. Jet black with no head. Taste also has heavy maple and chocolate notes with no booze burn. The palate is a little thin but the aftertaste lasts a long time. Excellent. Worthy of its ratings.

Samuel214 (3881) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2021 Flaska från TG, 2020. Svart med gräddig khakifärgad krona. Rejält med lönnsirap och kaffe i doften. Lönnsirapen i förgrunden, kaffet väl integrerad med smakbilden. Stor, kladdig kropp. Lönnsirap, kaffe, choklad, kokos, bounty, vaniljwafers, kex. Rejäl sötma, balanseras något av kaffet och beska. Mycket gott, stor i smaken. Välgjort. Kanske inte den mest komplexa ölen. Möjligtvis något hög sötma som blir lite mycket efter ett tag. Men ändå fantastiskt gott.

tomekk1978 (2611) - Z±bki, POLAND - NOV 15, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2020 Aromat syropu klonowego, kawy, czekolady, alkoholu. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnie trwała. Smak słodki, odzwierciedla aromat. Ładnie zbalansowany. Goryczka słodowo-alkoholowa, przyjemna. Pełnia wysoka, wysycenie średnio-wysokie i wafle do lodów na finiszu oraz alkohol rozgrzewający przełyk.

nickd717 (6696) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 31, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2020 Bottle in Sydney - thanks, Owen! Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma is very nice with huge maple, coffee, dark chocolate, roast. Flavor is extremely well balanced, medium maple syrup sweetness with a great roasty bitterness, espresso, dark chocolate. Feel is not too heavy at all, very drinkable with good carbonation. Did not disappoint.

fkoolen (3232) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2020 3000th rating! Bottle at home, 2019 ed, beautifully waxed. Very dark brown, quite a thick pour, foamy brown head. Huge coffee beans, mocha, maple, toffee, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, as it warms it gets some porto vinous character, light bitterness - incredible flavors, pastry stout avant-la-lettre. Beautiful long linger with complex coffee and maple tones. Big body, smooth, sticky mouthfeel, low prickly carbonation.

JPDIPSO (6600) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2020 Deep dark brown with a dense, dark tan head. Aromas of rich syrup, along with dark coffee, toffee, cinnamon, dark cocoa and mild roasted malt. Flavors start sweet and rich. The pure maple syrup pours through the malt and coffee. Smooth and slightly oily.

vcsa (295) - - MAR 8, 2020

Heavy sweetness balanced by same bitterness and sourness. Lingering bitter tart finish with hints of espresso. 味道:显著的咖啡味,伴随着黑巧克力、枫糖与烘烤麦芽。重甜被同等的苦度和酸度所平衡 Full bodied, soft carbonated. Oily texture, smooth. 口感:酒体饱满,杀口感柔和。质地油润,顺滑。 5/5 Overall Espres bitterness and tartness can last for dozens of minutes. Highly balanced and drinkable. Unlike KBBS, it's necessary to serve it slight chilled. 浓缩咖啡一样的酸和苦可以在口腔中滞留数十分钟。非常平衡、耐喝。和KBBS不同的是,

Brigadier (4575) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2020 On tap in Madison, WI Toppling Goliath has a reputation for excellence which made this the main draw for a night out at one of Madison's best bars. Worth every penny of the cost, it delivers an experience unrivalled by all but the best of the best. Despite the lines I may have to make a detour to their booth at the Great Taste this year to get another pour. AROMA / APPEARANCE A deep oily black core permeates the glass and stains everything it touches. A minimal head tracks the long icy legs which melt like sheets of snow on a warm spring day. Plums, raspberry, anise, and coffee hang in the air with a glowing warmth that feels mellow and dense. There's no mistaking the ABV but even so it feels very approachable. FLAVOR / PALATE Warm espresso, dark chocolate, plums, and blackberries coat the palate with layers of boozy sediment. The dense flavors complement each other so well that it is nearly effortless to follow each sip with another. The mildly bitter finish continues to warm the throat well after the glass is empty. Overall there is only one complaint - that I did not order a full pour when offered the opportunity.

jsquire (5890) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2020 Very dark beer out of the bottle with a short foamy brown head. Big alcohol and maple nose. Huge sweet maple syrup flavor with some chocolate, vanilla and sweetened coffee. Really rich dessert beer. Balanced enough to handle everything in here.

radagast83 (10845) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Bottle at the December Ratebeer DC Tasting. Poured a deep, dark brown color with a small tan head. Smells awesome. Aroma of pancakes, coffee. Maple syrup. Sweet, with enough roast from the malts and coffee to keep it balanced, at least balanced enough for a pastry stout.
