Reviewed on 8/6/18: Bottle courtesy of _angst_....thanks Alex! This makes 50/50 on the RateBeer Top 50! I am sure there will be a ticker tape parade waiting for me, along with a 50 page thread of congratulations from strangers that I have never met!! My cell phone ringer is on full volume, so as to not miss the phone call from AB-InBev.....as I am sure they will want a full interview from me....possibly a job offer, if I come across as "legit". Fingers crossed!! Anywho, I suppose I should talk about this beer.... Pours black, hues of dark brown, and a 2 finger mocha colored head that fades to a ring, with spotty lacing. Looks nice enough. On a scale of 1 to Budweiser, appearance ranks fairly high on the echelon. Aromas are full of fudge and vanilla....tons and tons of coconut...light barrel inflection. Ok, I am getting excited to sip this beer at this juncture. Taste is as the nose suggests, full of fudge notes, dry cocoa inflection, toasted coconut.....and an warming barrel presence that never bites too hard. Nice mouthfeel has an oily feel, but thick enough to keep the alcohol in check. Velvety Mounds bar. Light hints of spice, earth, tobacco work their way in as this warms. Finishes sweet, with bursts of cocoa and coconut.... with a lingering warmth that never becomes too overbearing. Another well done adjunct desert stout, that most of this site has a disdain for....I, on the other hand, have no problem enjoying these glutinous beasts of beers! Now, I am going to get back to my daily grind, waiting by the phone for AB-InBev to call with a questionnaire for me to fill out. Cheers! chrisv10 (19696) - DENMARK - AUG 5, 2018

Still. Um, yes, this is extra maple! Wonderful maple syrup with toasted coconuts. Barely getting barrel. This is tremendous, for those of us that like sticky, thick, dessert stouts.
