A - Wicked clear gold-amber body, small white head fades immediately and leaves zero lacing. Looks like a bourbon in my snifter.
S - Caramel, toffee, maple is there, but seems a little muted.
T - Caramel malt, toffee, butter, boozy alcohol. Again the maple would seem to be only as an accent.
M - Thick, syrupy, very low carb.
O - An interesting style, but I would have wanted that wasn't quite as strong. Not sure how fresh this one is, so maybe the maple flavor fades over time. I think I'll try it again if I can be sure of a fresh bottle.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Spirit Haus, Amherst, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1/4" light beige head over the clear coppery amber brew. Head is immediately down to a swirly skim, with slow-falling lace. Aroma is sweet and lightly fruity.

Taste is maple syrup upfront, lightly fruity in the middle, and returns to a maple candy close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is very good. One of the first Maple brews I've ever (!!!) had that actually comes off as advertised. Liking this one a lot.

A - Poured a golden orange with shades of gold/yellow around the edges. Small light head that dissipated moderately.

S - Rich, heavy maple syrup dominates the nose, underlying toasted malts and burnt sugar.

T - Up-front maple surfaces early and lingers throughout. The maple is sweet, boozy and strong. Toasted and caramel malt backbone with sweet brown sugar and caramel lip-smacking goodness.

M - Syrupy feel, like boozed up maple syrup. Perfect carbonation. Nice finish. Great drinkability for an 8% brew.

O - This is a sweet, boozy, dessert beer. Almost too sweet, but somehow pulls it off. The maple ain't shy, but it is tasty!
