4.59/5 rDev +6.5%
A: Tawny caramel hue with a thin film of a head and okay lacing considering the style
S: A lot of anise and bourbon and oak and maple syrup; this is boozy and malty and sweet and I cannot wait
T: This is brilliant: dark fruits, maple, anise, oak, bourbon, damn this is so so good
F: Creamy, medium body--such a good mouth feel
O: This is so damn good: bourbon in the finish and a ton of maple and just a bit of anise which strangely brings it together; God, I really love this

Bottle from burg. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark reddish brown with minimal cream colored head. Big bourbon maple vanilla aroma, some interesting spice notes, and sweet sweet malt. Flavor follows with a sweet vanilla maple and very subdued bourbon. Again an unexpected spicy kick toward the end here. This seems to have held up well (though did not have it fresh). Very smooth with a nice alcohol warmth. Medium low carbonation, and really drinks like a barley wine. This is excellent, despite not being a huge fan of the regular curmudgeon. I would probably take this over Sucaba. Yum. Now I just need to find a Blushing Monk to complete the set!

A: it pours a burnt orange color with a small head that dissipates quickly. nice lacing. I had a lot of sediment in my pour.
S: Maple syrup, then bourbon. heaven. It smells exactly as you would think. everything blends together perfectly.
T: maple sweetness up front followed by a light bourbon in the end. Hints of caramel. nothing is overpowering. every flavor compliments the other. its not over sweet at all and the maple is fantastic.
M: Totally smooth, kinda slick like syrup. light carbonation. kinda coats the mouth.
O: Just a great beer. Def worth trying to score a bottle.
