Double Stacked Flapjack Nuggets by 450 North Brewing

I’m a big fan of pancakes. I just don’t eat them as much anymore. Pancakes are yummy. Everyone knows that, but to me, I need more protein for breakfast so I generally look elsewhere.

However, I’m a HUGE fan of maple syrup-flavored beers. Hello! Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and Wide Awake It’s Morning from Funky Buddha, Canadian Breakfast Stout from Founders and the Untitled Art/Angry Chair collab Chocolate Vanilla Maple Imperial Stout are just a few. Do a Google search and you’ll find tons. Maple syrup flavored-beer is quite popular but getting the taste right is not easy.

I’ve been itching to try some of 450 North’s stouts after enjoying their genius at hazy IPA’s (my new obsession). Well, after my first visit to the brewery, I had one and wrote about Dark Star here. It was not the best stout I’ve ever had, but it was a good stout. So, now that 450 has released another stout for their Black Friday release, let’s get on this thing and see how it stacks up…see what I did there? 🙂

Double Stacked Flapjack Nuggets450 North calls Double Stacked Flapjack Nuggets a “pastry stout with maple syrup, vanilla, lactose and cinnamon.” So, is this description accurate? Let’s find out. This beer pours nice and dark with very little head. The aroma is mostly maple. As it warms, the vanilla leaks through on the nose as well.

There’s a ton of maple in the mouth as well in this medium-bodied beer. It’s sweet, straight up diabetes in a glass! I don’t get a lot of cinnamon here, but as it warms the more the flavors come through. The maple is huge on this one. It’s not as good as say Maple Bacon Coffee Porter or Wide Awake It’s Morning, but it’s a damn fine effort from 450 North. I will say that I share this with my wife over pancakes for breakfast on New Year’s Day and it went very well with that dish. So, win? 🙂 450 North brews the hazy IPA’s so well, but it’s nice to see them expand and do some specialty stouts. I like this one. It’s a nice change of pace for their Nuggets line. Cookies ‘n Cream Nuggets is up next so be looking for it!
