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... Pours lightly hazed and black with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is rich, spicy and sweet - more like gingerbread, yellow cake batter and graham than anything else. No maple syrup here. Medium to full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet gingerbread and heavily spiced. Minerals and winter spices in the finish. Growler courtesy of burg326!

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?

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.

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.

Poured a murky brown color with aromas of light cake and tons of maple. Flavors were light cake and a nice maple finish. A solid beer that was a nice surprise.

Growler at RBWG GT. Nose is sweet sugar, maple, frosting. Taste is bready with a cake icing flavor. A tad thin but very enjoyable.
