3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample shared @ RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever brought this! Deep brown pour with a tan head. Nose is damn sugary. Cake icing, maple glazed donut. Pecan pie. Makes you reach for the nearest EpiPen. Flavor follows through on the threats of the nose. Quite sweet. Loads of maple nut bar. Cake batter. Light cocoa. Full body, oily. Too sweet to put down by yourself, but OK in small doses.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Brown pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Sweet aroma, chocolate, bready. Sweet flavor, tasty though, loads of chocolate, maple popping more in the flavor, bready, some roast and nuts. Thin for the sweetness and flavor profile, but I imagine this is just flavored Maduro basically, right?

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
