Rating #1000! Oh yeahhh. Bottle thanks to Mikkel. Thank you so much for this treat! Pours pitch black with a thick medium mocha head. The aroma of this beer is so full of maple. It’s surprising. Didn’t expect it to have THIS much. Wow. Lots of vanilla, dry dark chocolate, cocoa powder, oak, dry roasted coffee, walnut, hazelnut. The taste is just as fantastic. Dry rich dark chocolate, maple, caramel, vanilla fudge, roasted coffee, milk chocolate. So rich and full. Damn. 9/5/9/5/18 - on 12/6/2015 Bottle shared. Pours pitch black with a small thick mocha head. Aromas of huge sweet maple, roast, bitter coffee, chocolate, vanilla, nuts, fudge. Taste is roasty, bitter, chocolate, sweet maple, green coffee, sweet fudge. 9/5/8/5/17 - on 10/12/2016

650ml bottle, thanks martjoobolut. Pours dark black brown, olily and without much of the foam, just light brown bubbles. Nose has freshly baked waffles with maple syrup and chocolate spread on the top, served with a nice cup of freshly brewed coffee. Serve me this with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Tastes more like a beer, oily, roast bitterness comes out at first, then maple sweetness comes with chocolate. Coffee beans, lightly drier finish, maple also present in the linger. Sweet pastry stout, I do like this, feels somewhat more real than Omnipollo's Gideon's Pancake for example.

Bottle, batch 5 (from trade with Brandon, thanks!). Pours black with beige head. Aroma and flavor are sweet, maple, coffee, syrupy, roasty, malty, some booze, some dryness. Overall: great, very maple syrup heavy, but I like maple syrup!

Bottle shared by Pilsnertest, many thanks! Insane coffee aroma somewhere in between newly grounded coffee beans and the most aromatic fresh brewed cup of black gold imaginable. Velvety smooth chocolate accompanying together with balanced maple and vanilla. Some light very light berry notes in taste and a bit of licorice. Rich and full with a coffee presence that really is the benchmark.

355 ml bottle, batch 4. Pours black with the most beautiful foam I've ever seen, brown and big and fine and smooth, also perfectly matched to the MD glass. Aroma is maple, walnut, vanilla, caramel, coffee. Body is heavy and strong, but pure maple syrup, coffee, caramel, booze. Intense and strong. Next to a Rye BA Vietnamese Speedway, it feels plain. Still outstanding, but I'm enjoying the other one more.

b4 Bottle, many thanks to anstei and dzudohonor. Poured into a Mornin Delight glass, amazing appearance! Black color with huge beige head. Aroma is super walnuts, nutmeg, maple. Taste is maple, walnuts, fresh coffee. Extremely soft mouthfeel with fine-bubbled carbonation. Superbly mapley, and really really great.

Pours like motor oil. Very viscous, with dark brown head. Once the bottle opens, Maple fills up the room. Massive cold coffee, vanilla, maple, dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt in the nose that is bloody amazing. Low carbonation, thick syrupy mouth, tons of coffee, maple syrup, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Very full bodied. Very rich. A sample is enough. It’s a great beer and alcohol well hidden. It’s fantastic. Worth the price or the high rating, I don’t think so.

Tons of bitter, short espresso, maple syrup, roasted coffee beans. Very natural, clean, intense. Beautiful 4.7
