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.

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!
