Somerville Brewing Company (Slumbrew)
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
You could gift this bottle as a reflection of your fine craft beer taste, drink it now to ease your holiday tension or cellar for the long winter ahead. For our first year of our Yankee Swap beer series, we selected rum barrels from our friends at Turkey Shore Distilleries and dark maple syrup from North Hadley Sugar Shack. This Strong Ale is a big beer with hints of maple and complex notes of oak and rum from the Old Ipswich rum barrels.

Had this in vertical tasting with 2014 Yankee swap. Pours a Sunday school dress shoe light brown, 1/4 inch head on light pour. Mild sweetness on the nose. Most maple syrup forward beer I have had. Was expecting it to be sweet but not this sweet. Not cloying, but more of a dessert beer.Glad I split the bomber; two glasses would have been too much.
