3.23/5 rDev -15.9%
Bottle: Poured a clear but dark amber color ale with a small foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt notes with light woody notes. Taste is also quiet sweet which probably originated from the maple syrup. Body is light with medium carbonation. Too sweet for the style but nice used of cherry wood.

A - hazy cedar red brown, one finger of tan had receded to a thin cover
S - definite woody and cherry aspects present, brown sugar and light grains
T - cherry flavour is there but maybe a little bit forced, woody and light earthy notes, some sugar and spice rounds it out with a hint of vanilla
M - relatively light, maybe a tad flat on carbonation, sticky sweet and coating through the finish
O - its a tasty brew with both the cherry and the wood making itself known, maybe a little too sweet for some but it suits me just fine

Pours a finger of foamy head on a clear amber colored body.
It has a rich aroma of maple syrup followed by wood, toffee, dry barley and candy corn.
The taste is a nice lemon bitter and maple syrup sweet mixture. It's fairly mellow (in a good way) for an aged beer with maple syrup added.
The texture has a stickiness to it with low to moderate carbonation.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 7/11/13
A clear dark amber with a few slow bubbles feeding a short lived finger of foam that leaves no lace
S mild wood, lots of toffee, ju-jubes are strong, I don't think cherry wood would make this smell like cherries but I do get some cherry, some maple rounds things out
T tastes a little better with slightly more wood, maple and caramels are stronger, ju-jubes are toned down, just a hint of booze but its very well hidden
M lighter side of medium but the bubbles give it some life creaming it up a little, fruity finish
O one of the better Innis & Gunn beers I've had, the flavor was the best part for sure but not lacking anywhere
I could drink this one again no problem, not overly complex but has a nice mix of flavors and very easy to drink for 8.3%
