Great Notion Double Stack

Aroma: “As subtle as they may be, there are some blueberry, strawberry, and earthy notes from the coffee beneath the thick layer of maple that dominates everything else on the aroma.”

Flavor: “Very strong maple-syrup character, though maybe not as intense as in the aroma. Milk chocolate sweetness throughout, with a lingering creamy finish. The roast from the stout tries oh so hard to peek through and brighten things up, but it doesn’t really have a chance. The coffee adds some dryness on the finish, but it’s still quite sweet overall.”

Overall: “I need a pancake and a shot of insulin. Massive maple syrup. Over the top. Has some other nice flavors, but they get lost. Really sweet.”
