drank from a Cigar City snifter... A light black body with some brown. A medium tan head rises quickly, ok retention, not much lace... A hot nose of alcohol, maple, and molasses. Not bad... The taste is still a hot but totally tolerable because its pretty sweet. Lots of maple, which is good, some smoke and caramel too... This is pretty good, would enjoy this again in the future with some more age.

375ml wax capped bottle served in a taster. Brewed December 2012. Pours slightly darker than cola with a loose, mocha-colored head that dissipates into a swirl and a creamy band around the shoulders. Some lacing, but poor retention. Nose expresses dark malts, molasses, a roasty quality and perhaps a trace of vanilla. Taste consistent with nose; however, no real maple character comes out until the beer reaches room temperature, and at best, it is minimal. The flavor profile is more or less dominated by an ashy character. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of lively with some acidity present as well. Overall, a decent beer, but not worth the price point and virtually no maple character present. Not sure if I would invest in another bottle.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a smaller head than the base. Still retains what it had well. Sugary legs on the swirl.

Smell - Buckets of maple. The maple liquor really comes out. Chocolate and really roasty coffee. Less chalky than the base beer.

Taste - Sharp maple liquor flavor up front. Lots of sweet maple. Oaky. Lots of that bitter chocolate and some of that chalkiness.

Mouthfeel - Hotter than the base. Much sweeter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Better than the base. I love maple. This is pretty intense, but tasty.
