Another great one here from Four Quarters. The maple is really pronounced, and the barrel is nice. A little light on the mouthfeel, but pretty close to the maple liqueur barrel overall

This beer really got better as it warmed up. A little boozy but not overwhelmingly so. I like that it's not too sweet. Good beer. Not understanding the ratings in the 2's.

Simply amazing. Dark as Night was such an outstanding beer and this...these two agings of it were unbelievable. Four quarters is the next hill farmstead.
