Batch #165, bottle number 68. Served with a little bowl of Vermont grade B maple syrup, into which we dipped maple cheddar cheese. Why? Because we could.

Mini review - time is short!

Clear copper, spotty lace, minimal head. Noses of woodsy, cool brown malts, clean fermentation, residual sugars, hints of burnt sugar, maple. The maple is not overwhelming.

Smells and tastes really like a German Alt (weird I know) on 'roids with added woodiness. The maple flavor is way more subdued than anticipated - I mean this IS called Maple Nipple after all - but it is nice... but not great. Mildly sweet. Slight roast. Clean, slightly warming, seems very attenuated, needs more maple aroma and flavor, in my opinion. Vermont makes THE BEST maple syrup (as this cheese and maple is attesting to) and I want to taste lots of it in this beer! Maybe pump up the mouthfeel too... it's a bit thin...

A beer called Maple Nipple from Vermont needs to be a Maple Extravaganza. This isn't bad, but could be so much more...

3.84/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Prohibition Pig snifter.
Pours dark amber, minimal head that dissipates.
Smells sweet, maple is prominent. Some alcohol.
Taste is inline with aroma, but a more complex maple flavor is present than what I was expecting.
Mouthfeel is nice, a smidge thicker than normal ale, I'm assuming from the maple.
Overall, a well done beer!
