No maple here. Very clear oak and vanilla taste, this is the closest thing to Innis & Gunn that I've ever had and it is amazing! I put back a couple more on different nights to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

Nice amber hue, good head, and very drinkable. Not overpowering with the caramel flavor, as Innis can be. I hope its still there when I go back to Raleighwood!

Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap at Sam's in Durham. Poured into a Big Boss pint glass.

Pours a bronze color with a creamy white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is MAPLE and not much else. wow...wasn't expecting that. Taste is quite more of the same. An overwhelming sweet maple taste just overpowers any other flavor that this beer has. Not exactly a fan of this. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not very drinkable as this flavor is just too intense.

Overall just too sweet and mapley for my liking. Definitely not something youd want to have more than one and even once is probably too much. Wont be returning to this one.
