3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber shared with friends. Dark thick pour, good carbonation. Aroma has subtle hints of maple, chocolate and coffee bean. While this is a good imperial stout I was hoping the maple would be a little more prominent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Luc, Pat and Chantal. Aroma: intense tobacco, smokey maple, spices. App: black with medium frothy moka head leaving great lacing. Look similar to an espresso. Taste and palate: medium body, medium sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: good. Maybe a bit too sweet for my tastes. Still easy to drink.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Mule Bar, Winooski, VT. Deep, chestnut brown. Velvety, thin, glossy, mocha head that sticks all the way down the glass. Nose has caramel truffle. Fudge. Maple syrup. Chocolate fudge cake. The full works. Bit of a cheesecake tang to it. Taste is tangy, fruity, dark chocolate bitter. Light dryness. Some sweetness, but no way as much as the aroma might suggest. Silky palate. Drinks way under the ABV. Finishes long, truffly, chocolatey, light bitter. The sweetness kicks in right at the end. Super stuff.
