Brewer Description: No real description that I could find. But I guess I could say Black Mist base with some version of maple added to it.

Intro: A 473ml can with a FAB (fabrication?) date of August 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with an almost one finger mocha brown head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some light maple.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, with hints of oak, maple and brown sugar. Lightly sweet with a light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Sweeter than the original base version, but the maple flavours are not coming through strong enough considering ‘maple’ is in its name. Good roast, coffee and chocolate flavours though. But I preferred the original base version just that slightly more.
