Cervesa amb una escuma poc persistent, però amb un bon aroma a vainilla i un gust molt dolç que pot recordar a caramel i fruita.

Thanks Tommy for this one. I actually had forgotten about this bottle in my beer fridge and was excited to rediscover it today. Dark brown body with brown head, though not much retention. Lovely aroma of vanilla, dried fruit, cola and a touch of maple. Taste is rather sweet, kind of like a belgian, caramel, molasses, bubblegum, banana. abv well masked. This is a really nice beer.

"a little overly sweet from the maple syrup, but quite unique at the same time. not very well balanced, but quite tasty. mostly malt and sweet with little hop presence. great, full bodied and smooth."

Large tan head that quickly fell into a brown body full of ruby at the edges. Malty maple aroma, very sweet. Sweet and full bodied with a creamy almost syrupy mouthfeel. Some alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a 330mL bottle. Pours clear amber with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sweet caramel, maple, bread malt, and some lightly bitter toast. The flavor is much more caramel and maple malt up front with some toasted bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long caramel and lightly bitter finish. Simple but good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours a hazy black tea colour with a small yellowish tan head and no lace. Aroma quite sweet and iced tea like when cold. Maple sugar sweetness and yellow raisins and prunes. On the palate, sweet maple sugar dominant at first, stewed dark fruits, on the finish it dries out with a moderate resin bitterness, faint nuts, more maple sugar, bit of alcohol heat. Body medium-full, slightly syrupy with moderate prickly carb, This was a pretty nice sipper, maple-forward and perhaps better suited to a cooler day or a later position in my tasting rotation away from the wits, sours and IPAs. Quality is there though, would like to try the barrel version as I can see it being ideal for that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark blackish brown with 0 head. It almost looks like a very dark. There’s a decent amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is sweet candied sugar, maple, and caramel. The taste is huge malty sweetness and alcohol, followed by an aftertaste of maple syrup. This is a big, thick, beer and I don’t think I could have more than 1 bottle.
