Well when trying to pry the wax-covered cap from the bottle, it broke off the tip of the bottle and I had to pull a few glass shards from the bottle. And then I had to pour into another glass to ensure there weren't any remaining shards in the beer. I tried to not let that impact my review of the beer itself, but that's pretty hard when you have to worry about possibly ingesting glass shards with every sip you take.

Aside from the poorly constructed/waxed bottle, this was a pretty good beer. Strong Maple syrup and bourbon flavors and aromas. Very little tan head that dissipated quickly. Mouth feel was thick, a bit syrupy, and oily, on point for the style. Overall, a good beer but not the best beer that I've had that featured bourbon, maple syrup, or both. A good sipper (provided your bottle doesn't have glass in it.)

"Vintage 2014" bottle purchased at the 2015 Crawfish Boil.

A: Pitch black, beautiful light brown head with fine carbonation that disappears after a minute.

S: The most amazing chocolatey maple aroma. Charred oak, bourbon, vanilla, coffee. One of the best smelling beers I've had. Smells like it's gonna be sweet.

T: It's sweet. Decadent. Huge maple flavor, more than CBS and Hipster Brunch (as far as I can remember). Bourbon, That's about it. Maple and bourbon. Kind of one dimensional in that aspect, but it's fantastic.

M: Medium. About spot on for this ABV. Any thicker and you might think you're drinking straight maple syrup.

O: Dessert. Or breakfast. It's fantastic.
