Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon, sweet chocolate, maple, bacon, smoke, and roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate, some bourbon, roast, and a finish of smoky bacon. Has a full, smooth body. Delicious. darb85 (313) - Canton, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2017

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with off white head. Huge maple syrup aroma with caramel, coffee and chocolate. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet. You get lots of sweet molasses and maple syrup with some smoked meats. Some cocoa and coffee. Very well done imperial stout.

Sampled from a bottle,
this impy had a very dark, black pour with a very little light tan and tan bubbles for a cover, the bubbles dissipated quickly to a small ring,
it left small spots of lacing on the glass that rolled off, there was some dark brown sediment in the bottle,
this beer had a nose of roasted malt, dark chocolate and bakers chocolate up front, dark and /or intense coffee with roasted malt astringency that gave a little bitterness (but this did not take away from enjoying the drink), and molasses, faint bourbon with a hint of liquor caramel notes,
a little maple syrup was noticed as it warmed up,
the flavors were chocolate and roasted malt with coffee, molasses, some bourbon and a little caramel,
there was faint maple syrup that was more noticeable in the flavor than on the nose, some sweetness that was bigger than in the aroma, and a little roasted malt astringency that lingered a bit on the tongue, the bourbon barrel and maple syrup became more noticeable as the beer warmed up,
the mouth feel was medium to full, it was creamy and had soft to average carbonation,
this beer had a good roasted malt and dark chocolate nose, the flavor was pretty much the same with maple syrup and more sweetness than what was noticed on the nose,
this was a great roasted malt and chocolate imperial stout, a great beer for sipping on a cold Winter evening,
I did not notice any bacon on the nose or in the flavor, but still a good drink. ljthiessen (1550) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 26, 2017

Bottle shared at muckfest by jabier. The beer is a black color with a khaki head of foam. Sweet beer with smoky and candy notes. Very sweet overall. Big body and medium carbonation. phaleslu (11059) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2017
Crowler from Mark - thanks again, Mark! Pours a pretty much opaque coffee brown, deep and dark, with a small tan head that fades quickly into just a ring. Big maple and coffee here, with the bacon smoke just sort of light and lingering in the background. Vanilla and chocolate, roasted malts, earth, charred oak, toasted brown sugar, and subtle warming bourbon throughout. This is mostly about the maple and coffee, though. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, roasty mouthfeel that sticks to the palate at the end and lingers. Decadent stuff. Really nice. jc1762 (1695) - JAPAN - APR 6, 2017
Bottle poured into a snifter showing pitch black with sparse white foam.
The nose shows sweet maple syrup and light savory bacon.
The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Highly sweet flavors of maple syrup with a dark chocolate bitterness on the finish. Slightly one dimensional but delicious.
