Pudding DribblesPudding Dribbles
Notes: Pudding Dribbles is brewed using fresh maple sap from Miller;s maple farm in Cashton, Wisconsin in place of water. A medley of specialty roasted malts whirl into layers of syrupy goodness. Post fermentation we treat this complex ale with house toasted coconut, roasted cocoa nibs, sticky maple syrup, oily vanilla beans, aromatic cinnamon and fresh ground coffee beans. Brewed for trips off the beaten path to your favorite sugar shack.

Pours the color of motor oil from a 1964 farm tractor that has never had an oil change with a small head that dissipated rapidly. smell of decadent chocolate, vanilla, dark roast coffee with a touch of alcohol. Taste is chocolate, maple, vanilla coffee with a touch of cinnamon at the end. Reminds me of chocolate maple fudge. Nice thick mouthfeel and a bit of warming alcohol. Overall a very nice Imperial Porter.

2020 Vintage. Black color.

Maple for days. Nice coconut and cinnamon combo. Vanilla sweetness. Chocolate and Hershey’s syrup. Pastry like sweetness and feel. Smooth, thick, syrupy. Very enjoyable!

8 ball black with a fuzzy dark tan foam that settles to a thick, uniform quarter pipe collar all the way around.

Thickly sweet vanilla and maple syrup tease out some candied nuts, brown sugar and cocoa dusted almond. Semi-sticky with a slight burn, a of hint cinnamon Pop Tarts continues the decadent dance before a more roasty toastiness brings it closer to Earth in the finish.

While it sounds absurdly sweet, it's relatively nicely balanced. That said, it was brewed with maple sap, so it's very unique. I found it quite refreshingly delicious, holding up well against a slew of other pastry whales.

Pure amazing. Chocolate pudding and fudge mixing with vanilla and maple. It’s a liquid chocolate fudge.

“Pudding Dribbles, our imperial porter brewed with maple sap and conditioned on vanilla beans, cacao nibs, coconut, cinnamon, maple syrup and a kiss of Fiddlehead Coffee Co. coffee.” That sounds good enough to me. 750ML crowler split with me wife. Argggh.

Might be the first crowler that didn’t spit all over the digits used to pop it open. The beer, it is black. Maple, vanilla, & cinnamon come through strongly on the nose. I like.

Pudding Dribbles was the first sip of Forager that I had, & instantly converted me into a fan. Making maple pop in a beer is (evidently) not easy, & this one has it in maple spades. Big maple hit with a base of vanilla, sweet malts, chocolate shell, with an appropriately subtle jab of cinnamon (which can easily ruin a good beer), which either lends or accentuates a gentle spiciness; if you’d told me this was rye barrel aged, I might believe you. Rich, filling, smooth, & so easy to sip. I could drink a lot of this.

Nillerzzzz was the star of the release today, but if this wasn’t better, it was neck in neck. A fantastic beer that makes great use of maple.
