_angst_ (2784) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2012
341 ml bottle generously gifted by Glouglouburp as an extra in our trade. Many many thanks man! Pours hazy dark amberish wooden brown with a small deep golden head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is very sweet with maple syrup, dark bread, roasted coconuts, dry wood, overripe plums, toffee, alcohol, dark honey, roasted cereal, vanilla fudge, charred wood and hints of citrus. Taste is very sweet, tiny bitter and malty with caramel, maple syrup, alcohol, plums and raisins in brandy, fresh grass, charred wood, roasted coconut, alcohol, resinous wood and hints of smoke and citrus zest. Mouthfeel is intense, round, sticky sweet, tiny boozy and full bodied. Finish is sweet and very tiny bitter with sweet dark bread, maple syrup, caramel, citrus zest, charred wood, roasted coconut, alcohol and hints of roasted cereals. I can see people finding this too sweet but I very much like the combination of maple syrup and classical oak aged characteristics.

The mouthfeel is fiery, round and sticky with a medium fizzy carbonation. Sticky syrup finish with a touch of hops. Medium bodied.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours murky brown with an off white head. Aroma of maple syrup, acetone, marzipan, booze, caramel, roasted malts and wood. Flavour virtually as expected from the aroma. It is softly carbonated yet a smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied, sweet, but a bit too boozy for my taste right now.

Snoro (297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2012
Une bonne odeur de banane. Une belle mousse qui s’estombe rapidement. Un goût de velour, du stock et d’alcool, avec un peu d’amertume.
