snagged this in a recent swap. always a fan of dark horse and maple bourbon...? sounds good to me. had side by side with the bourbon 3 legs.

maple is big on this one compared to the 3 legs. this is quite fantastic as the 3 legs is too boozy and the maple is more of a hint. although a bit intense, this one is an easy favorite for me.

It is an shiny/oily black pour from a waxed 12 oz. bottle. A little bit of dark tan foam. Fairly wispy.

It smells very sweet. Lots of maple and vanilla. Some distinct bourbon and ashy, charred oak. A strong chocolate undertone.

Maple flavor is front and center. It taste like syrup drizzled over some brownies made with more of a cocoa/milk chocolate rather than dark. A nice amount of vanilla, bourbon, and barrel flavor in there. The charred taste doesn't come through quite as much as the aroma and I would like to get a little more roasted malt form it to balance the sweetness.

It is medium bodied, bordering on heavy with the syrupy feel. Carbonation is on the lighter side.

This is much better than the 3 Pairs of Legs. It reminds me of Thirsty Dog' Maple Porter a lot. If you are looking for a very maple forward beer you shouldn't be disappointed

Beer provided by Carter,

12 oz bottle dated 2014.
A: waxed bottle was a bit funky, overly waxed. Beer poured a nearly pure black with dark brown head. Head retention was fair to pour. It had completely disappeared within 2 minutes.
S: the maple syrup is dominant but also elements of charred oak, vanilla, a bit of dark chocolate and the dark roasted malt.
T: syrup was present but not overpowering, the charred oak roastiness was the lingering flavor barely a hint of the vanilla and just a trace of dark chocolate .
M: medium body, was a bit thick at first but we had chilled it too much. Once it warmed up it was spot on for the style.
O: very enjoyable, a good balance of all the elements, not too overpowered by the maple syrup.
