Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BrewEngland on 11-13-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

You could gift this bottle as a reflection of your fine craft beer taste, drink it now to ease your holiday tension or cellar for the long winter ahead. For our first year of our Yankee Swap beer series, we selected rum barrels from our friends at Turkey Shore Distilleries and dark maple syrup from North Hadley Sugar Shack. This Strong Ale is a big beer with hints of maple and complex notes of oak and rum from the Old Ipswich rum barrels.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Weak Brown body with Coca Cola highlights, topped by two fingers of level dense off-white foam.

Aroma is hints of rum vanilla, oak, dark fruits, licorice, plenty of alcohol, maple.
Very boozy.

Taste is rum, vanilla, oak dark fruits, maple and a whole lot of booze. Bit of belly burn. Getting plenty of the barrel, not much from the base beer.

Full, chewy, but not very smooth or slick mouthfeel.

Ok, but too much booze, not enough beer.
