Shared a groom's bottle with the groom, officiant, and best man right before the wedding ceremony in Vermont. He figured there'd be no better way to commemorate the event and no better time to drink the bottle. I'd say he was right on both counts. Strong and rich, but less boozy than you'd expect (though not by much), the sweetness of the maple syrup really does disguise the alcohol burn pretty nicely. Considering the fairly minimal carbonation, this should probably be considered more of a maple syrup liqueur, ingredients aside. Mild yeast presence reminds you that it's still a beer, but if you've ever wanted to get drunk off almost straight fermented syrup, and ensure yourself a monster headache, get yourself a bottle.

A - Amberish in color. Looks like maple syrup for sure.
S - Sweet maple syrup and a little bit of oak.
T - Sweet maple syrup with oak. Also get flavors of dates in there as well. light oak presence to it.
M - Not as thick as I expected it to be. Sits on the tongue nicely.
O - A sweet maple beer with a nice dark fruit presence that adds some complexity. Beers of this type aren't my style as the sweetness is a bit too much. Glad to try it though.

So this beer was awesome. Docked some points just because of its sweetness... But thats to be expected from a beer with all that maple syrup.
