A collaboration with West Kill Brewing made with bourbon barrel aged maple syrup and toasted maple bark...

Mahogany red-brown and clear body under a slim and brief tan foam top... Presents characteristics akin to watery spiced dates and watery maple syrup... Oak tannins sort their way through lending some drying oakiness on the finish... Mildly sweet without much bitterness, and a faint shellac of maple and pine resin lingering on the palate... Fairly light-bodied, lightly carbonated, and very drinkable... Perhaps lacking some of the depth of flavor and feel of a traditional dubbel, this is still a very enjoyable beer... The bourbon's influence on the maple syrup is barely noticeable, and this is more of a maple and wood infused thin dubbel... I'd still say give it a try, but dubbel purists may find it lacking...

Canned 9/24/18...

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of candi sugars are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light flavors of maple syrup along with hints of bourbon.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I can get the maple syrup in this beer but any traces of bourbon are largely unnoticed.
