Cannery Brewing Maple Stout

It seems that I actually have some readers now. Perhaps I should put a little more effort into my postings. This reviewer has never been a fan of flavoured stouts or porters. Mainly because the stouts were either not that flavourful to begin with or they tasted really good. Why harm a great stout my adding stuff to it. This beer falls into the latter category. The base stout is good and roasty with hints of bittersweet chocolate. The maple syrup, mostly a liqueur like flavour, truly enhanced the sweetness of this stout. The mouthfeel was full and effervescent. Not too thick and not too thin
The bitter chocolate dominates and goes away after a while.

As mentioned before, I am not a fan of flavoured porters and stouts. This one seems to work.

The chocolate and maple syrup really steadied my nerves for an epic night of Left4Dead2 romp through the Dead City 2 map. After 2 hours there were over 6K zombie victims; that's a lot of chalk outlines.
This was a solid, bitter chocolate stout that was nicely enhanced by the maple syrup. It was lightly decadent and would go well with a rich stew or as a desert drink.
