Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 2nd February 2021. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin mocha brown head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: From afar, I got pancakes and maple syrup. Closer up I got light roast, sweet maple, chocolate, caramel, bourbon and maybe a touch of toffee.
Taste: Sweet, very sweet, too sweet for me. Maple syrup, caramel, chocolate, bourbon.
Mouthfeel: Sticky, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The maple filled aroma was great, but the sweetness in the taste was way overdone. Normally sipping Imperial Stouts became quarter sipping as it was just way too much. And at times I even had to eat something like bread just to balance out the sweetness. It took a long time for me to finish this one, and it wasn’t enjoyable the whole way.
