Maple in this seemed pretty artificial but was also very prominent. Good, not great. weihenweizen (4467) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2018
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a glass. Black with medium small light brown head. Aroma is coffee & maple, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is coffee and some maple. SHIG (5330) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 29, 2018
Bottle: Poured a black with off white head. Aroma was light coffee and smoke, loads of maple and malts. Taste super maple with light coffee. Alpha10 (918) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2017
2017/12/29 - Pours jet black with a foamy tan head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal, patchy lacing. Aroma is incredible; chocolate, roasted coffee, light smoke, brown sugar, vanilla and a TON of sweet maple syrup. Taste is more sweet syrup, brown sugar, chocolate, light smoke, vanilla, hazelnut, coffee and a hint of soy. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with smooth (almost creamy) carbonation and a roasted, sweet finish. ABV is well hidden. Exceptional beer. Amazing maple syrup notes, rounded out with coffee, smoke, vanilla and chocolate. What’s not to love?

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Bottled. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is tons of maple, sweet notes, chocolate, plenty of coffee. Don’t really get any bacon or smoky grease/salt/brine. But maple syrup dominates. Bit of cinnamon. Highly enjoyable. Flavor is syrup sweetness, coffee, chocolate, vanilla. Some coffee bitterness in the finish. Body is creamy without being overly thin. Reminds me of YGOFT. Delicious. willisread (4207) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Bottle shared. Thanks Matt! Pours a deep brown with a small bit of beige head that dissipates. Huge pancake syrup nose that goes on and and on. Lots of coffee on top of that as well. Some faint brown sugar, and chocolate notes but mostly pancake syrup. Dates as it warms up. Sweet syrup on the palate, chocolate, coffee and more pancakes. Sweet finish with some light bacon flavors that come in behind the sweet syrup. Fun beer and pastry stout at it's best I suppose. Ktwse (5929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of maple syrup, a ton of it, chocolate, coffee. Taste is chocolate, coffee, maple syruuuuup... Rich and velvety body with soft carbonation. fiery1 (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2017
650ml bottle @ Alex's. Pours an opaque black with a small brown head. Nose is intense maple syrup with a mild coffee note. Flavour is deliciously rich, a great maple syrup character throughout atop a roasted malt and coffee character. Not really getting any bacon out of this, maybe some background twinge. Overall this is a deliciously sweet, rich, and smooth Imperial Stout with great maple syrup presence. fiulijn (21594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2017
Black color, the head disappears quickly. Aroma and flavor provide an excellent character of chocolate with nuts, cream, and hint of coffee, moderately sweet, intense, perfectly balanced.
