look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on tap at the GI 25th Anniversary Party. Served in a taster glass.

A: Pours a dark blackish brown color with a thick tan head forming on the pour. It recedes down the glass leaving behind some soapy lace.

S: Heavy on the roasted malts with a nice chocolate presence. The maple really comes through with a heavy nutty scent that is like candied pecans. Very sweet and roasty.

T: The pecans are even more present in the taste. It's like throwing a handful of roasted pecans in your mouth on the initial sip. The sweet maple syrup comes through in the middle and mixes with some roasted malts and dark chocolate.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. Very sweet finish.

O: While I really enjoyed the flavors I thought it was a tad too sweet and the pecans needed to be toned down a bit. That being said if you like the two flavors listed in the description you'll sure as shit get them in this beer. (917 characters)

On tap at the 25th anniversary party

A - Dark brown with slight chocolate milk colored head.

S - Roasted malted with tons of pecan, vanilla and maple

T - Sweet maple syrup with loads of pecan as well. Slight roasted malt comes through near the back. Light milky creaminess. Really a sweet and flavorful beer

M - Thinner body with a slight syrupy stickiness on the back end as well

O - Really great maple beer that has more sweet maple goodness than the CBS I had. I wish they made this more often as it is delicious. The pecan also adds a nice complexity to it as well. (584 characters)
