Sampled back on 10/13/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a very dark brown in color with a small tan head. Lots of lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of sweet maple syrup and grassy hops. Actually brewed with maple syrup. Nice aroma. The taste was actually very smooth with that high alcohol content unlike other 9% brews. Smooth rich flavor that was pretty tasty with no harsh aftertaste.
