vadie (624) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Marron/Ambrée foncé avec une petite mousse. L’arôme de syrop d’érable et malt. Il me fait souvenir d’une sortie écolaire dans n3 à Lower Fort Garry. Très terreux. Le goût est de syrop d’érable et malt. A t’il d’houblon? Intéressant.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 23, 2013
Dobre piwo z słodowym akcentem. Syrop klonowy dominuje po całości, zarówno w smaku jak i zapachu. Piękna czapa piany i brązowo-machoniowy kolor. Kanadyjski słodkawy syrop pozostaje nawet na dnie butelki a po zmieszaniu i wlaniu jest jeszcze bardziej dominujący. Alkohol ukryty starannie

Geruch ziemlich süß, Gewürze, erinnert an Wein, Hagebutte. Süßer Start. Mitte Gewürze, Zimt, Trauben. Abgangs Malz, wieder gewürzig und leicht bitter-trocken. Ok.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - JAN 14, 2013
Aroma dolce e fruttato con una leggera punta acida. Si presenta bruna con un solido cappelo di schiuma. Ingresso in bocca lievemente carbonato con un apporto dolce e acido definito dallo sciroppo d’acero. Emerge verso la fine una discreta nota luppolata ed erbacea. Il tutto "decorato" da una struttura alcolica di fondo. Potrebbe risultare stucchevole ma almeno per me è stata una bevuta piacevole.

Cuso (4206) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Brown color with medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, syrup, spices in aroma. Sweet taste with some spices, caramel, toffee. Spicy sweet finish. Sticky sweet beer.

sulawang (591) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
pours dark root beer brown with lots of large bits of sediment (like a snow globe), pours with a large foamy head, light sticky lacing, some slow streams. Dark sweet malts, light woodiness, and maple wood. Tastes with a pleasant 7/10-sweetness, tastes of maple syrup, cola, root beer, creamy mouthfeel, vanilla, malts, (a bit of westv tastes in here), caramel, finishing sweet malty minimal bitter. Medium complexity, medium-high depth, good carry, good transitions, excellent drinkability.

zimbo (525) - SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2012
With the promise of maple in a Belgian Strong Ale I had decent hopes this might produce the appropriate reaction. Dark brown with a thick rocky magnolia head there was a medicinal slightly maple slightly spice nose. To taste there was just too much confected sugary spice which was almost as bad as Ale Mary. No way.

BIRRAmoriamoci (30) - - NOV 24, 2012
Colore ambra scuro, profondo e opaco, con deboli, quasi inesistenti, riflessi rubino. La schiuma è fine, compatta e cremosa, dalla superficie liscia. Morbida, bassa, caratterizzata da un’elevata resistenza, colore nocciola. L’aroma è caldo e sproporzionato su note dolciastre, sciroppo d’acero fra tutte, preceduta da una traccia alcolica che, dopo lo sciroppo, si riaffaccia nel seguito, accompagnata da una timida essenza floreale. Il gusto esalta un corpo pieno e tondeggiante all’imbocco, con accento amaro ed elevata persistenza amarostica, prolungata fin oltre l’ingoio. Immediato accento pepato a livello palatale, rapido passaggio, accentuata presenza alcolica, con sentori di malto e biscotto, sciroppo a profusione, conclude un finale leggermente maltato. L’ho scritto all’inizio, e lo ripeto: se c’è un aggettivo con cui descrivere questa birra, per me è assolutamente "stucchevole". Un esperimento non riuscito, quello di impiegare lo sciroppo d’acero, che ne invace il profilo olfattivo-gustativo, squilibrandone gli equilibri verso il lato dolciastro, in una maniera così accentuata che la rende una bevuta cattiva. Io stesso ho avuto difficoltà e tracannare l’ultimo sorso, che mi osservava con sguardo languido dal bicchiere. Non ho potuto resistere, ma vi assicuro che ho avuto difficoltà.
