Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Growler shared at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever supplied this one, 21/02/15. Light black with a moderate tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is rich maple syrup, peacan, sweet tunes. Taste comprises maple syrup, chocolate, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough brown if a touch sweet.

Leighton (13979) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Growler shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours oily black-brown with a frothy tan head. Massively aromatic, with lots of sugary chocolate, some cupcakes I suppose. Medium sweet flavor with notes of cheap coffee, syrupy chocolate, maple syrup. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, more maple and chocolate. Hefty.

rdixon77 (1581) - Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Growler at RBWG. Poured dark brown. Definitely had a frosting taste/aroma, maple, vanilla, brown sugar, bready. Pretty nice but a touch thin for the big sweet flavors.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Growler shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a deep brown with bubbly white dissipating head. Aroma like a vanilla frosted chocolate cupcake. Taste follows, sweet but very nice.

Homer321 (2755) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Growler at RBWG GT. Nose is sweet sugar, maple, frosting. Taste is bready with a cake icing flavor. A tad thin but very enjoyable.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Part of a flight at the brewpub today. Pours nearly black like a stout with a nice and creamy mocha head. Aroma is very sweet maple, chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, brown sugar. Flavor follows with vanilla hazelnut and maple, a bit of chocolate, some light coffee, and insanely sweet. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. This was way sweet but fun in a 3 ounce pour. No need for any more than that.

mcox90 (1691) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2014
32 oz. growler shared by jcwattsrugger. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige ring of a head. Sweet maple aroma with taste being the same. Thick, syrupy palate with a sweet finish. One dimensional. It is good, but it’s an iota away from being to sweet. Glad to have had it.

tricyclist (1044) - Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Sample pour at the brewpub. Rich medium brown color with off white light head. Nose is sweet sugary goodness, caramel sweet and molasses with plenty of vanilla... cupcake. Flavor is more caramel sweetness with plenty of vanilla again, not unlike vanilla maduro. Sweet throughout and light in body. Drinkable but a little sweet...

PorterPounder (6215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewpub. Thick murky dark brown pour with a nic bubbly mocha colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some maple frosting accents, a bit of nuttiness. Flavor profile is similar with more of that male candy-like essence, a touch of peanut butter and some rich black potting soil. Thick sticky mouthfeel. As advertised - a good dessert beer - could have been a hot mess - turned out well.
