Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving thick sheets to mound surface. Sweet chocolate, soy and earthy coffee aromas. Medium bodied with smoky chocolate upfront turning to maple in the middle before a lasting hot mocha finish. DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bourbon leads again with some alcohol notes and somewhat boozy. Dark burnt, toasted brown, chocolate and caramel malts. Some vanilla oak feel is nice from the barrels. Brown sugar and maple influence. Overall quite sweet. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
375mL from La Bodega. $14. Clear deep brown pour, looking black in the glass. Larger carbonation, medium coffee foam with large formation. Tepid pour required. Wispy lacing. Nose is excellent coffee creme brulee, awesomely decadent and spot on dark dessert flavors. Souffle, truffle, cake. Taste is lighter than expected, not boozy or sticky, and not ashy or soy saucy like a lot of darker Mikkeller offerings. Carbonation is higher on the palate providing buoyancy with some richer dark chocolate. Maple blends in well, not really a main flavor. Overall approachable and easy to enjoy. 10% abv is completely absent. Feels like 6.5%. baraciisch (3383) - California, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Dark black in color with thick tan head... Maple syrup, coffee, malty aroma... Flavor is oak, vanilla, roasted malts and coffee, mouthfeel is syrupy, lots of maple character... Delicious

Bottle shared by dudeabide. Poured black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate malt, coffee and maple aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark roasted sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer. zebra (2313) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013

Great maple syrup aroma. Bigger body, smooth, crisp soft lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Awesome stuff. b3shine (9150) - Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2013
375 ml bottle to taster (shared by dudeabide). Looks good; a dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate,coffee, and maple syrup. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Average on the palate. Good, not great.
