Notes/Commercial Description:
Enticing, rich and complex, this creation defies easy description. Our 'once-a-year beer' is brewed only during sugaring season with 100% maple sap from our friend Paul Marble in Fayston, VT. No water added! Just barley, hops, and ale yeast.

500ml corked and caged bottle into a couple of snifters. April 2011. #360/374. Pours copper with a thin white head. Leaves back light spotty lace that slowly drips down the sides. The aroma is SWEET! I’m talking maple syrup, brown sugar, caramel, sugary dough and fruit. I’m pleased to find that is isn’t cloying in the nose however, as the complexity keeps things very interesting. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, very sugary on the palate but with more help from those fruity esters and some extra boozy sweetness from the ABV. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied and quite chewy on the tongue. This feels about 12% but doesn’t sting, as those aforementioned flavors eat up a lot of the booze presence here. I really liked this. I initially thought the sweetness was going to get to be too much at first but the overall complexity of this really grew on me the further I got into the glass.

Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one.

2012 vintage. Bottle # 387/750.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with no head. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, maple, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, maple, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice smell, but the flavors are slightly oxidized at this point.

bottle 1210/1500 from 2013
The beer pours a dark hazy amber (no chunks of yeast) with a thin halo of white head around the perimeter. The nose is sweet (unexpected notes of lactose-like dairy sweetness?), distinct maple and yeast, minimal alcohol, no bitterness. The taste is maple forward (as hoped) with a hint of fruit and yeast, and a slight bitterness in the finish (more woody than hoppy). The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly syrupy (some carbonation, generous sap sweetness), but not chewy, has smooth maple goodness, masked alcohol, and a slightly dry bitterness in the finish. This beer is fantastic to drink, especially if you're a maple fan, but I'll have trouble justifying the price again in the future.
