2012 Release of 2011's brew. Bottle #1 of 750 poured into a snifter.

A-crystal clear dark amber, with a small tan head that dissipated quickly.

S–a bouquet of maple sweetness and alcohol.

T–the Maple Tripple dances on your entire pallet, engaging every taste bud. Maple sweetness is joined with slight malt and yeast flavors and the beer finishes with a hint of relative bitterness. It was very sweet, but never cloying. It was extremely complex, but never muddled. A display of incredible brewing finesse.

M–A perfect viscosity, that coats your tongue long enough to savor each sip. It wasn't syrupy or heavy though.

O–By far the best beer I have ever had. It is most similar to Avery's 2011 Beast but it somehow avoids all of that beers small imperfections. The beauty of the beer is the complexity that comes out of its simplicity. It has 4 ingredients (concentrated maple sap, barley, yeast and hops) and they come together in a way that surpassed my very high expectations

Out of this world! Best VT beer I've had to date! That is saying something. This beer is well worth the price of admission. Thank God above I showed up at the warren store on the right day!

Picked this beer up in September at the Waitsfield Farmer's Market. Well, first I drove to the Mad Taco and waited on line to get a ticket that allowed me the possibility of purchasing this beer at said Market. Coming from New York, this was quite the beer geek journey, and well worth it.

The appearance is dark brown with little to no lacing. The consistency is truly amazing, considering there was no water used in the brew process. The smell is sweet and bourbon-like. The taste is excellent. A sugary maple taste, with notes of toffee and caramel. Just awesome.

Overall, just an outstanding ale, unlike anything else. Brewed by the very best!
