4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
5 oz pour at Dexter’s Pub, pre-GTMW. Oily, viscous black pour with dark espresso-colored head. Okay lacing, thick ribbons of alcohol legs. Huge maple syrup on the nose, also big on the coffee, barrel notes, and brown sugar. Super, super sweet: more maple syrup, molasses, fresh black coffee, some rich chocolate in there as well. I imagine this is what CBS sort of tastes like. Either way, a really excellent beer, if cloyingly sweet.
12 oz bottle via local trade shared with Tmoney99 and drsordr from notes. Pours an oily black color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma has big maple and coffee, this is as solid a start as I've had in a while. The flavor has roasted malt, big maple syrup, big roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, a hint of smoke, big thick mouth feel, one of the best Imperial Stouts I have had. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 It's hard to describe the perfection that is mornin delight. It's SUPER rich in malty roasty toasty chocolate goodness. The intensity of coffee, butterscotch, and maple syrup makes this beer all the more impressive being as balanced as it is. Dark brown in color. Creamy tan head.... It's hard to focus on this review. In short, this is the best beer I've ever tasted. 77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2017
THANKS to Kraddel! #11.000! Very happy to have actually tried this one. Bomber split by 4 people. Batch # 2. Totally black, head doesn’t last. Looks even thick upon poor, this beer is insanely thick. Nose is hazelnut paste sweet but also bit bitter, herbal nuts, walnuts pure mocha syrup, bitter molasses, syrup, very big coffee, espresso with some roast, pecan, maple is way lower than you would expect. This is not the pasty stout that I expected this to be, maple is quite low, barely there but this is way more about the coffee, espresso, coffee roast, even roasted malts & it is insanely thick, easily one the thickest beers that I have ever had, tastes of hazelnut ,more roast than expected, pure thick syrup, more molasses than maple almost pure malt syrup, heavy coffee bitter finish, expresso, decent roast, lingering nuts & inanely thick. Surprisingly balanced, surprisingly coffee forward. Liked it more & more the more I drank it, surprisingly drinkable despite the thickness. Really great beer, not the beer to end all beer as many have proclaimed it but is any beer? Would love to try the BA version at some point but that one is in ultra-high demand.

Huge thanks to Dylan for sharing this personal whale! 🙌 Batch 2.
Nose is full on roasted coffee. Bit grainy. Huge chocolate truffle. The body is so thick, almost syrupy. very sweet too but never annoying. Immediately had sticky lips and tong from the intense sugary sweetnes. This is just straight alcoholic milk chocolate. Also reminds me of creamy high quality cappuccino. Aftertaste is a Bit burnt fruit. Like fruit compote which is nice.
Only fault is I expected more maple. But that could have something to do with age. Love to compare this with other batches as there seems to be some differences.

Sampled at GABF 2017. Pours a rich brownish black body with thin ring of lace. Mouthfeel is medium bodied - palate is met with an enormous amount of sugar at first; a bit too sweet; notes of melted fudge, maple syrup, caramel candy and vanilla frosting.

Aroma: tiramisu for DAYZ !!!!, sweet coffee, intensive note of dried dark fruits.
Appearance: black, small dense head.
Taste: sweet, flavour of cacao, hazelnuts, earthy coffee, tiramisu, nutty chocolate.
Palate: full body, medium carbonation.
Overall: DAMN ! That's what I call a superb beer, I's sooo tiramisu-driven, taste is not as sweet as aroma indicated but still it brings to my mind a tiramisu made with super bitter earthy coffee with hazelnutty powder on it .
