A- One finger egg shell white head dissipates to a thin frothy ring around the glass. The appearance is just like a unfiltered IPA. Allot of sediment. Color is golden brown.
S- The aroma is very mellow and minor. Slight hint of fruit but i could not distinguish what the fruit could be, very hard to pull any notes or characteristics out of the aroma. Slight maple, sugar, as it warms up get more rich sweet toffee notes.
T- The taste is more impressive then the aroma. The maple syrup is very present, especially in the backend. Really sweet, rich beer, toffee, slight vanilla comes out as it warms up.
M- Medium mouthfeel, dry on the palate. sticky finish.
O- Enjoyable. Have no desire to try it again, but definitely glad i got to try it once. Really liked the maple syrup taste, really shined in this beer.

03/14 - On tap. Having experienced this before I saved it for the closing act on an afternoons 'tastings'. The maple & oak aroma that greets you at the outset is tempered by the reality of the liquid in the tongue. The ensuing sweetness is not transported via aroma so the tactile experience not only substantiates the initial contact, it transports from the ethereal to the real. What you thought you were smelling is indeed coursing over your tongue & buds & substantiates the illusion. If you don't appreciate oak aging or are averse to maple anything, run away because this is a pretty assertive brew.
01/05/14 Maple, no doubt. Thick almost syrupy. Oak influenced Bourbon is right there. Poured into mini-tulip & it was very turbulent. Bubbles going up...bubbles sinking down (not sediment). Thick head, no trace of yeast in aroma. All-in-all a very enjoyable beer but neither session-able nor everyday...but neither is a tuxedo, but it makes you feel good when your wearing it. Try this on.
