750 mL cork and caged bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep mahogany. Off white head that retains well.

Smell - Lots of syrupy sweetness. Maple syrup and molasses. Birch? I dunno. Coffee roasted malts.

Taste - Syrup is still strong. Molasses flavor. Dark malts lend a deep coffee and chocolate flavor. The finish is all syrup flavor, but doesn't finish sweet.

Mouthfeel - Very dry. Not boozy, but still a noticeably big beer. Medium carbonation.

Overall - It's got a lot of the syrup flavors, but that doesn't make it terribly exciting.
