750ml bottle shared with brother, trade from Jonathan. Aroma: lots of maple syrup, coffee, molasses, boozy, light roastiness probably coming from the coffee, fiery1 (1753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
light vanilla and bourbon. Alcohol is quite present. App: pitch black with minimal mocha frothy head leaving amazing lacing. Taste and palate: full body, syrupy, high sweetness, soft carbonation, roasted bitter finish. Overall: I wasn't sure at first but the more I drink it the more I like it. Gotta love sweetness though.
750ml bottle @ Matt's. Pours an opaque black with a small brown head. Nose is upfront tons of maple syrup with a light coffee note. Flavour is potent, mayple syrup isn't as prominent upfront, burnt sugar, honeycomb toffee, which then lends way to roasted espresso beans. The sweetness is kept in check strangely enough, and it has a somewhat bitter coffee toffee finish. Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
Dark brown. Pours quite inky, with no head. Nice and oily. The aroma has a lot of coffee and dark burnt molassesy sugars. Sweet. Lots of maple, lots of coffee, has a lot of malt. There's a fair bit of bitterness and alcohol. The finish showcases both the maple syrup and the alcohol, but the very end of the aftertaste is coffee.

Bottle - Sweet Syrupy dark roast. Jet dark brown with a small brown head. Dark sweet roast. Over the top, but a surprising balance because of the bitterness. Nice. mcberko (19175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of maple syrup upfront, followed by coffee, and light cocoa. Flavour is intense, with shitloads of maple syrup upfront, followed by lots of fresh roasted espresso beans, and a touch of vanilla. You'd think this was sweet from the description, but there is a nicely cutting bitterness than balances out the sweetness well. Excellent.

750ml bottle (thx, Justin I.!) at Matt's. Pours an oily almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is sweet wirh maple syrup, coffee and some burnt sugar notes. Similar taste. Quite complex and nice stuff. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Keg at the brewery. Dark brown, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roast, coffee, maple, molasses, vanilla. Taste is roast, coffee, maple. Full bodied, mild booziness. seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Sampled at 777th Criderfest in a Willybecher glass, it poured an opaque black with thin but persistent beige foam, a little lace. Roasty stout traits plus hint of maple, intense fruity coffee aroma and flavour. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, lingering coffee stout aftertastes. Over-the-top in every way, but as such, tasty and memorable. One of the most talked-about brews at this show full of great ones. baraciisch (3398) - California, USA - JUN 25, 2017
