Got this fresh growler from Doodler. A totally unwarranted surprise man! Much appreciate the generosity Dood. Shared at the annual Moder Lambic tasting last weekend. Cheers boys!

From 1L swing top growler into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: Clear brown pour yields a two finger, medium looking, fluffy, light tan head with great retention. Clear black body with no carbonation evident. Fades to a faint wisp and leaves some decent lacing clinging to the glass.

SMELL: A bold maple syrup jumps right out of the growler upon opening. Everyone was quite impressed. Maple syrup, coffee, with some smoked notes that almost come across as light chilies. A touch of roasted malt in there as well, but the maple syrup and coffee seem to pull this one along. Really nice.

TASTE: A touch watery up front, especially given how impressive the nose was, but some coffee, light maple syrup, a touch of roast and some smoked meat flavors all come out, with notes of leather at the swallow. A medium but lingering aftertaste of smoky bacon, coffee, and some maple syrupy sweetness linger on the palate.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes rather dry for the style. Good.

OVERALL: Good beer and all the adjuncts are there in measured amounts. It's rather well balanced, though the flavor is a touch empty at the beginning and the base porter doesn't really seem to be important in this beer. It's mostly an adjunct show. Still, it was tasty and everyone quite enjoyed it. Would be very interested in trying this from the bottle. Thanks again Doodler! This was a fun treat.
