Poured into my Bruery tulip.
Deep chestnut, fairly clear when not obscured by darkness. A big, fizzy cola-like head the color of torched sugar gets about an inch tall and shows nice stickiness, depositing some thin lines of lace.
Maple is the leading aroma, followed by sugary toffee, smoke, butter and oak. Maybe hints of cocoa and alcohol as well. Decent, but a little sweet and maple-heavy for my tastes.
Tangy dark chocolate and maple syrup lead the flavor, followed by vinous oak. A hint of smoke adds complexity, but again, it’s a bit too sweet. Tangy, boozy finish.
Mouthfeel is a nice surprise. Fairly light, pinching carbonation in a syrup medium-full body. Booziness is pretty high, numbing the tongue and coming through the nostrils.
I like maple, I like oak, I like smoke. If they were in equal proportions in this beer, I might like it a bit more. As it is, when the beer gets warm it just gets too sweet for me.
