Sampled at long last over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Interesting beer, no doubt. The combination of maple syrup and whiskey seemed to impart a spearment and tea aroma, that was unusual. There wasn't as much of this on the palate, but there was still some noticeable bourbon whiskey, vanilla and sweet malt that was enjoyable. Alcohol was well integrated into the flavor profile, though you could still tell it was up there a bit.

Enjoyable, but it's hard to imagine drinking a lot of this.
