Aroma: huge dark chocolate, cacao, vanilla, whiskey.
Taste: sweet, flavour of chocolate ice-cream, vanilla, whiskey, cacao, coffee, soy souce and wood,
Palate: full body, creamy, low carbonation.
Overall: I remember checking RB couple years ago and reading about top beers in each style. I was sure i wont have a chance to meet and taste the real legend of KBBS.
I've just done it and tbh even if I'm not 'enlightened' in any way thanks to that, I truly enjoyed drinking it ! vcsa (211) - - MAR 7, 2020

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2019 Got this bottle from a great guy and there is no way to be disappointed with this beer. Soon as the bottle is popped the aroma of maple pours out. Pours black with tan head. Taste of maple and coffee with the bourbon seeping through. Absolutely delicious! NikolasSc7 (1) - - OCT 24, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2019 Pretty dry for my taste and much drier than other ones within the same terms of a stout. Literally woody taste and not smoothy as most of the people say! Very overrated, especially for a barrel aged stout!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2019 2018 bottle into a taster showing pitch black with no head.
The nose shows intense notes of sweet biscuit, chocolate, cacao, and light bourbon.
The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated with an oily mouthfeel. Intense dark chocolate forward with a balanced bourbon background. Short finish of maple syrup. LovibondRates30 (12) - - JUL 18, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2019 Dark amber color, big brown sugar, cranberries, oak, cherries, burnt raisins and brown sugar. Very sweet mouth, but fairly thin. Ok complexity just not mind blowing nimbleprop (11593) - Southeast, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2019 Many, many thanks to @IPhonePhan for this share. Not every day you taste a top 50, let alone a #1. Bottle #866. 12oz bottle is very heavily waxed... but then it pops and wow... the maple nose just plumes out of the bottle. Nose has coffee, malt, blueberry, milk chocolate. Oh yeah... looks like syrup, dark chocolate brown with basically no head but tons of thick, syrupy legs. Flavor has the booze, cognac and dark whiskey, chocolate, coffee and coffee liqueur, the maple is more complimentary than anything. Finishes a bit hot, but really smooth given everything happening. beerspammer (141) - - JUL 4, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2019 2016 vintage pours thick with a tan head. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee. Viscous mouthfeel with notes of dark chocolate, maple, coffee and light whiskey to finish. Spectacular! radagast83 (10672) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2019 12oz bottle at the DC Spring RB Tasting. Poured a pitch black, motor oil color with a small, wispy brown head. Lots of nice legs on this one. Aroma was a blast, a huge blast of maple. Roasted malts, roasted coffee, vanilla bean. Flavor was similar, nice maple syrup, vanilla and coffee notes. Very warming. Very smooth, not a whole lot of sweetness in this one, which was very nice. So smooth.
