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.

I've actually had this before, but I'm just getting around to reviewing it now, as I brought out a bottle to share at SS'14. This is truly one of the most unique beers in existence. Pours a deep bronzed amber color, not really hazy, but "glossy," if that makes sense...like looking through a thick piece of colored glass. A small yellow-tan head sinks to a ringlet and a swirl leaves some legs on the glass. Rich, dark sugars in the aroma, caramel and maple sap, woody and slightly boozy. Luscious taste reflects the nose, caramel, maple, some vanilla sweetness, some woodiness, and a stiff boozy kick, but that component melds well with the rest of the flavors, giving a sensation of a maple liqueur more than any other kind of booze. Medium-full body, mouthfeel is smooth and slick, syrupy, and can be on the hot side. Previous versions I've had have been a bit more hot with booze, but this particular bottle--aged only a few months after I bought it--was really nice and smooth, and the alcohol heat was toned down. I seriously could've easily conquered this bottle by myself with no problem. The price tags on these bottles are on the higher side, but it's understandable considering the recipe, and it's also worth every penny.
