3.98/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Very clear bourbon brown with a modest cream head that dissipates to a ring of foam.
Aroma is boozy, with notes of deep caramelization, muted sherry, maple syrup, and dark fruit adding complexity.
Very fusel alcohol, sweet maple syrup backbone, vanilla, bourbon, hints of dark fruit, raisins, that are masked by high alcohol.
Body is full, with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol heat.
A little more one-note than I had hoped for. The alcohol really rules the game at this point. Then again,I was disappointed somewhat in cbs, so maybe it's a maple thing...

A: This poured a chunky gold with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like sweet short bread and butter scotch, with some oak and coconut and vanilla, and a little maple and raisin.
T: It tasted like copper and short bread and butter scotch, with some oak and coconut and vanilla. It had a clean and mostly sweet aftertaste with a little heat.
M: It was thick with a little carbonation. Excellent slick body.
D: This was excellent. Delicious complex and bold scent and taste, and fantastic body. The finish was pretty smooth, but it must be sipped. No need to age, although I'm sure it would last. Yum.

4.25/5 rDev +1.7%

White head. Orange hued copper gold.
Flavor profile: sweet. The maple from the barrels actually shows in this beer. Caramel and toffee. Lots of wheat. The oak show with a lot of vanilla and spice. Big bourbon presence, but not boozy. Hints of orange peel. Some molasses shows. Very sweet, but enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: warming, smooth, sweet. Medium to full bodied. Ends fairly clean.
Overall, a very enjoyable beer. In tempted to say this is better than nemesis 09. Drinkable with tons of flavor. I love how the maple actually showed with this beer.
