750 ml bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, maple syrup, cocoa and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, maple syrup, light coffee and light roastiness with a smooth lingering chocolate maple finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate and vanilla, light maple, bourbon, and faint coffee. It pours a dark brown with some red highlights and a small tan head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, molasses, and vanilla. There is a good amount of maple in the middle. The finish light-moderate espresso with more vanilla, light bourbon, smoke, and mild oak. Its medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, the maple syrup and coffee put this right in my wheelhouse.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops black oily pour with nice lacing and a minimal tan head. Aromas of straight up maple syrup coffee dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is overly sweet too much maple can see drinking 2 oz and that?s enough. The flavors are good and natural but can?t see drinking 8 oz or more. I?ll let you know how it works in my pancake batter! Holy diabetes!

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Imperial Stout #250. 750ml bottle shared by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is brown sugar, maple syrup, bourbon. This beer takes sweet to a new level. Heavy maple syrup, caramel, vanilla, mild bourbon. Too sweet. This is a festival beer. The flavors are good, but you dont want more than 2oz.

650 ml bottle purchased at Beertopia, Omaha, NE. Pitch black, very thin mocha head. Aroma is pure maple syrup. No, really pour this over you pancakes, wow. Very mild coffee.

The flavor shows heavy on the adjunct. Coffee is light upfront with a blast of maple syrup. Whiskey barrel even fights to get through the heavy maple syrup. Jesus... This would be a perfect for a stout reduction in a saut pan to be used on your morning pancakes. Full, thick mouthfeel. I love bold stouts, I really do. This is really too sweet, if they scaled back the maple and let the coffee and barrel come through it would be awesome!

Catch up rating from Saturdays RIS bottle share. Another big, boozy stout, silky, oily body, lots of wood notes along with some other savory essences, maple, whiskey, molasses, dark chocolate. A dessert beer for sure, would put a cap on great meal.

Boise Imperial Stout Tasting. Dark brown pour, small beige head. Fantastic aroma of vanilla, maple syrup, chocolate, and espresso. Rich and smooth taste, sweet, roasty, delicious. Nice barrel notes with the maple and vanilla. This is legit.

Bottle. A- Espresso beans, coffee, chocolate. A- Black color, black liquid, beige head. T- Coffee, espresso, chocolate. P- Full body, thin texture, average carbonation, full finish. O- Tried this as a fest last week and searched forever for it. Not on here and no response from the brewery. Turns out thats because I tried it even before it was "officially" released. Now that its release party is tonight, I added it. Great beer. A bit thin on the body but otherwise simply excellent. Tons of espresso and chocolate and very tasty.
