Bottle brought back from Melbourne and shared at Lingua tasting. Poured a deep near black, not much head forming. Huuuuge maple nose, sugary sweet pancakes, some choc dark malt. They must've put a tonne of syrup in this, hands down beat the other maple beers in the tasting for impact. Flavour was a touch overly sweet and not too complex. Med body for an imp stout, noticeable booze, lingering sweetness after a dry finish. Lots of fun. KansaiBeerLvrs (5568) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2018
In my head I see this as an Australian version of CBS (which I’ve yet to try), thanks to my buddy Jeremy (mrjez on RB I believe) for hooking me up with this.
Big as all hell maple syrup aroma. Super maple dark sugar flavor on a medium light body, surprisingly dry. Insane aroma and super sweet maple.

Bottle at the Good Beer Company, Singapore. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy, very short-lived tan head. The aroma is sweet roasty malt, big sweet maple syrup, aniseed floral, coffee, chocolate, liquorice. The flavour is moderate to strong sweet with a smooth, rich oily sweet roast malt, liquorice hop bitter palate and an oily mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle 330ml. Black with beige, small head. Aroma is rich of chocolate, pralines and of course maple syrup which is really intense. Chocolate in liquid that's what I can say about the taste. Additionally small vanilla hint give us great flavor. Beer is medium to full body, oily, smooth with completely hidden alcohol and each sip give you the pleasure. One thing what I could complain is too big saturation, not a big deal but disturbs a bit. wrlangin (230) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2017
330 ml bottle from Cellarbrations Hawthorne. Strong maple aroma. Stout is very sweet and is exactly as described, not in a subtle way. Tastes like pancakes in a bottle. Well done, but the novelty wore off by the end of the bottle.

Pours black, tan head.
Nose shows maple syrup, cocoa, heavy roasted malt, toffee, nutty malt.
Similar flavours; big maple syrup, lots of roasted malt, a fair bit of sweetness. Some booze but pretty well-hidden.
