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.

Une bonne odeur de banane. Une belle mousse qui sestombe rapidement. Un got de velour, du stock et dalcool, avec un peu damertume.

Thanks to Glouglouburb. Dany is the man! Great aroma. Strong malt backbone. Great beer, even if it comes from French Canada.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
341mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), split with Matts_Property, pours an opaque dark orangy brown with a small beige head. Aroma of loads of maple syrup, scotch whiskey, brown sugar, heaps of caramel, molasses and quite high alcohol. Flavour of maple syrup and booze upfront, with brown sugar, subtle scotch whiskey, molasses, caramel and slight oak (though quite subdued / subtle). Boozier than I remember the original, with subtle use of the oak barrels. Very complex and the sweetness is balanced well, unlike many scotch ales. Delicious.

deyholla (6974) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle shared by the Michigan crew, thanks! Poured a cloudy deep amber with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a bit of booze on it but had sweet grains, with some maple and a bit of backing caramel and toffee. Flavor starts with maple and sweet grains with some caramel and toffee in the finish.
