Drinks light for 16%. Dark in color and smooth with a softer mouthfeel than the other variants. The wood is there but not overbearing. Heavy on chocolate, so much that it tends to cover the other notes a bit. Solid stout but at $55 a little overpriced!

Do you like maple? Do you like deth? Get on this! The perfect amount of maple. Dark as deth, great drinking after 1 year of aging. Drink at room temp for the full tasting of the adjunct.

Smooth maltiness with perfectly faint cherry. This can be likened to the original minus the chocolate notes. The faint cherry is there throughout and finishes well with a short linger.

Very dark and smooth with Faint vanilla. The coconut toast is nice and bold, which is good to help cover the heavy coffee in this. Would have rated it higher if the coffee was less prevalent.Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 22) badge! Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 28) badge!
