Well when trying to pry the wax-covered cap from the bottle, it broke off the tip of the bottle and I had to pull a few glass shards from the bottle. And then I had to pour into another glass to ensure there weren't any remaining shards in the beer. I tried to not let that impact my review of the beer itself, but that's pretty hard when you have to worry about possibly ingesting glass shards with every sip you take.

Aside from the poorly constructed/waxed bottle, this was a pretty good beer. Strong Maple syrup and bourbon flavors and aromas. Very little tan head that dissipated quickly. Mouth feel was thick, a bit syrupy, and oily, on point for the style. Overall, a good beer but not the best beer that I've had that featured bourbon, maple syrup, or both. A good sipper (provided your bottle doesn't have glass in it.)
