Cask at Cigar City. Served in a goblet-y little glass.

Appearance - Murky brown with a small off white head. Gross color, really. Some lacing.

Smell - Lots of maple and some nutmeg. Smells very sweet. Some nuttiness.

Taste - Very mapley and sweet. It drops off quickly. Bitterness in the middle that lingers into a nutty and spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - Too bitter for me. Low carbonation, but lacking in a smoothness.

Overall - The maple is tasty and it evokes some french-toasty flavors. Doesn't really come together perfectly.
