Got this from a great friend who lives in Vermont! Bottle 845 of 1500. Beautiful, slightly hazy dark mahogany pour with a two finger creamy beige head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is incredible with huge maple notes along with hints of brown sugar, caramel, brown bread, molasses, vanilla, and toffee. The taste is incredibly rich with the maple once again the star. Hints of raisins were a surprise, complemented nicely with sweet brown bread, oak, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, booze, and just a touch of chocolate. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with subtle creaminess, and a warming, somewhat cloying finish. Overall, while this is borderline too sweet, it's so full of flavor, and it's got just enough balance to compensate for any faults. Highly recommended!
