500ml corked and caged bottled, 2011 vintage.

Pours a deep ruby color with a very small light amber ring of foam. Nose is malty and rich, a bit sweet and maple.

Wow, taste is very maple and sweet, it isn't cloying or syrupy though which is nice and makes it surprisingly drinkable. Mothfeel is very rich and full with light carbonation, quite good!

Bottled 05/2012. Thanks for the bottle SneezyAchew! Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours near flat, caramel colored liquid with basically no head.
S: Super sweet smelling with huge notes of caramel and maple.
T: Similar to the nose with hints of leather, vanilla and extremely sweet barrel aged wooden syrup. More straight up maple flavor than any maple beer I’ve had. Sweet but delicious.
M: Medium-full body, very sugary and slick mouth, super low carbonation. The double diget alcohol is hidden extremely well.
O: Perhaps this could have used a bit more age but this is a mighty fine dessert sipper right now. If you love sweets you love this. Thanks again Michael.

Big thanks to starrdogg for sharing this bottle. Served in a snifter.

Pours a deep golden color with a nearly-non-existent off-white head and a few bubbles on top. The nose carries strong notes of maple and plenty of malty sweetness. Not much depth, but the maple presence is quite nice. The flavor follows the same pattern -- smooth maple with a bit of heat through the back-end. So much maple it tastes a bit woody. Medium-full syrupy body with low carbonation and a touch of booze. Well done, but hard to have more than a few ounces of.
