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.

Shared with rudzud

Pours a decent fizzy bubbly head with a super aggressive pour light head covering that fades fairly quickly but if lacing over fairly hazy maple brown color.

Nose brings nice maple sweet syrupy maple candy and light molasses like, maple creams, light triple like Belgian malts and light esters, light booze and big malt sweetness.

Taste Starts sweet with lots of maple, maple candies and creams, caramel candies, syrupy but not sticky. Nice maple, but lighter triple flavors, some esters and light booze with a hint of heat, light bitterness and hint if spices, hint of bitterness too. Nice candy finish, lots of maple and maple creams, still a bit sweet, light triple bitterness, slightest hint of citrus.

Mouth is thicker syrupy and sweet, decent carb, just a hint of booze.

Overall nice, more like they threw in a ton of maple and couldn't figure out what to call it, so they threw in a few Belgian triple malts and yeast flavors to call it a maple triple, but fairly tasty.

What a late night, after dinner or cold evening treat. Was lucky enough to make it up to Vermont for the release of this beer and have always wanted to try this.

No head and not supposed to be. A nice autumn brown/amber color with excellent clarity. Based on the look, you are more likely to check for legs vs. lace.

Shocking that this smells like real maples syrup.. I’m not talking about Aunt Jemima or Log Cabin.. but the real stuff. I’d also say some brown sugar as well.

Wonderful and very different. Doesn’t feel like a beer, doesn’t drink like a beer, but still wonderful. A kicked up Maple liqueur with a kick. The brown sugar notes are here as well. A nice subtle bitterness just below the surface that balances what could be some overbearing sweetness.

Definitely bold in body and a touch sticky.. Just a slight touch of carbonation..

Just a pretty cool beer… Well done sir.

A- A dark amber body with a thin white layer of bubbles on top.

S- Maple is there, with a lot of oak coming through from a malty body.

T- Nice malty oaky body followed by a huge rush of sugary maple syrup.

M- Thick and syrupy. A definite sipper that sticks to your mouth for a long time after each taste.

O- An innovative beer that cannot truly be categorized. There are very few beers that are "out there" and this is one of them.

Thanks to Joeybones3 for this one. Shared with the local crew at an impromtu tasting on 8/10.
bottle 404 / 750 - bottled may 2012

a - looks like maple syrup. pretty still with very soft carbonation if any. really attractive amber maroon color, but still.

s - nice sweet smell. some maple and subdued booze. good brown sugar notes.

t - in a word...maple syrup. strong brown sugar. very tasty indeed, but not very beer like.

m - minimal carbonation but easy to drink. very soft and the ABV is invisible.

o - overall, VERY impressed. kind of like a braggot. different, but damn tasty!
