BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lawson's Finest Liquids
Vermont, United States
lawsonsfinest.com

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beauty was created by filling two oak barrels with Lawson's Finest Maple Nipple Ale that had previously held a Maple Bourbon from Saxton's River Distillery in Brattleboro, VT. We patiently waited a year, then blended the oak-aged beer with a small portion of fresh beer. The result is Sticky.

Brewed in 2013… poured 9/5/2015

Look: Brown Amber with almost no head
Smell: Syrup and Bourbon right off the bat.
Taste: Sweeter than expected, but an incredibly unique flavor. Maple syrup and Bourbon were the most prevalent
Feel: Light and smooth going down
Overall: Again, sweeter than I thought

Drinks light. Not too sweet. Has a nice earthy, maple syrup backbone. Some vanilla, caramel and toffee flavors. No real bourbon booze flavor. It's good, but wish it was a bit thicker.
