Pours a golden orange body with minimal head and lace on top of a boozy, bourbon like aroma that has some woodiness and I get a sugary sweetness so I assume that's the maple syrup (also get a touch of sour patch from somewhere). Boozy, heavy, woodiness keeps it smooth and there is some sugary sweetness although I can't really pinpoint an exact flavor. I like this beer b/c the alcohol, for as high as the ABV is, is not overpowering and there is more of a sweet vanilla like bourbon profile and than straight alcohol/heat flavors. Finishes dry with some sweetness and not overpowering.
