Had a bottle of this with my meal at Berta's in Wanaque, NJ. Poured a reddish mahogany, with a beige head, one finger; average retention and lacing. The nose revealed large caramel, apple, pear, cherry, oak, vanilla, and maple syrup notes. I must say, that after reading some reviews, I was bracing myself to be underwhelmed, but I was in fact impressed. Then the taste..very similar to the nose, but a little on the sweet maple side midpalate, dissolving to a sweet cherry/maple syrup finish punctuated by some alcohol hints. Medium bodied, and almost no carbonation; slick, viscous feel. Despite the sweetness and the viscosity, I actually found this beer to be pleasantly drinkable. Paired very nicely with my cream tart dessert!
