Flip-top growler at RBWG Grand Tasting thanks to burg326. Thank you! Clear, amber pour. Okay head formation. Nose is buttery pancake, maple syrup, muted chocolate. Really rich and spot on like a Funky Buddha beer. Taste is moderate butter, sweet maple, more pancake. Thin but clean body. Wasn’t really my think, but I think almost everyone loved this beer including my fiancee.

2/23/13. Big props to burg326 for sharing during RBWG - one of many things he popped! My goal now is to beat him in FL ticks. Watch out. I’ll be seeking out EVERY local beer and hitting EVERY local release from here on out... so anyway, about that beer... Nice brown pour with a solid tan head that sticks. Crazy aroma with plenty of maple syrup, nice bready maltiness, and even a dose of chocolate. The flavor follows suit with a nice combination of malt, chocolate, and maple. Tasty!

Swing top to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (BIG ups to burg326). Looks good; a semi-transparent caramel orange with off-white lacing. Smells B.O.M.B.; just like the name suggests. Tastes like it smells, but slightly less pronounced. Good on the palate. This is outstanding beer!

Golden pour with no head. Aroma of maple syrup and chocolate. Rich sweet chocolate, maple syrup, and a hinto light bitter at the end. Really like eating pancakes with watery maple syrup.

Huge thanks to my boss who opened this growler even though he knew I have 2 saved for the RBWG and some big event in Tampa March 9th. Poured a nice murky brown color with huge aromas of maple syrup, chocolate, light vanilla, and cake. How did they get this smell? Flavors follow suit maple syrup, cake, chocolate chips, and light malt. Wow this was a great beer, please make more so I can drink with breakfeast.

This thing is killer! Sample pour of relatively dark liquid with a short finger head. Nose is all breakfast items! Maple and coffee, chocolate chips and smoothness. Flavor is healthy coffee and some sweetness up front with a mild chocolate finish. Really enjoyable...
