750ml growler poured into a Lambic.info geuze tumbler.

A~ black with a dark tan fluffy head and a little lacing.

S~ mostly extremely sweet maple syrup followed by a little roasted malt.

T~ follows the nose way less roasted malt here... sweet as could be with slight vanilla and charred oak from the bourbon.

M~ extremely clawing and syrupy. slight carb.

O~ its like drinking the HF BA maple syrup straight... and i should know! i've done that plenty of times haha! while it is delicious i like some beer in my beer... i would have been happier putting this on some waffles haha

Wow! Really glad I walked in to this on my first trip to HFS. The way the maple stands is incredible, slightly sweet almost no alcohol taste. One of the best most unique beers I have ever had! This makes Goose Island Burbon County look like an embarrassment.

750 mL bottle. Inky black with a khaki head. Smells of heavily roasted malt. Very sweet. I really don't get a ton of maple, which is surprising. Some bourbon. Tastes outrageously sweet. I definitely get maple this time around. Like drinking maple syrup. Heavy roasted malts behind the maple syrup lends some chocolate. Bourbon is lost. Heavy and immensely sweet. It's almost undrinkable, but I admit that in tiny quantities it's pretty tasty.
