Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled on 15th December 2017, and with a best before date of 15th December 2022. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin brown head that disappeared almost immediately but left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Light roast, white chocolate, coffee, vanilla, along with hints of maple and herbal notes on the finish.
Taste: Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, ash, with hints of maple and brown sugar.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Nice Imperial Stout that hides the booze well. Not too sweet either despite the maple, but I think it could be the smoke/ash flavours that balance this out.

Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled on 10th July 2018, and with a best before date of 10th July 2023. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a half finger mocha brown head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some tiny spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, fudge, nuttiness (maybe pecan), smoky, tar, slight peat even, and caramel.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, chocolate, roasted malts, smoky, smoked ham, charred wood. Finish was a little weird chemical / plastic-y.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Chocolate and roastiness was nice, the smokiness was ok, but somehow the mix brought out a chemical / plastic-y finish, which was not the end of the world, but enough to make me think that perhaps once is enough.

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.

Brewer Description: (from website) Gesha village in Ethiopia is said to be the birthplace of coffee. Not only does this region offer up the longest coffee history, it also boasts some of the best stuff in the world. This stout is a celebration of that heritage. And a way to show appreciation for some personal close friends in Ethiopia that are part of a handful of incredibly rigorous coffee growers.
