Wow this beer is super sweet and strong but for what it is it is fairly balanced. Aroma of maple, vanilla, bourbon and alcohol all in a nice delicate balance. Taste is maple, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar and a big alcohol warming on the finish. Overall the flavors are fairly banned except the maple needs to be cut by alot.

Dimmig brun-orange med ett förvånads värt ljust skum i förhållande till ölen. Doft: Lönn sirap, vanilj, gräddkola, rostade nötter. Smak: Samma som doft till största delen, damn.

750ml brown bottle. Pours brown, unclear. Small beige head. Big maple nose, sweet, a little alcohol. Taste has big sweet maple notes, some woody hints, very rich, late hop note with a little bitterness to balance. Hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied, decent carbonation. Overall a bit too heavy for me, one glass in more than enough.

Tessic (816) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
This wheat poured a deep amber colour with a tan, rocky head. Scents include maple, alcohol, Baileys, fudge and more maple. First swig was smooth and very strong flavoured with minimal carbonation. Almost a oily mouthfeel with flavours of maple fudge, malt, toffee and caramel. Finish is sweet and thick on the palate with maple sugar lingering. Warms all the way down.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of maple notes is quite dominant with light residuals sugar notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by woody maple notes which are dominant but also kind of pleasant is maybe tad over the top. Residual sugar notes are also present but not overly so with alcohol not really discernible. Body is lighter than expected with heavy filtration and medium carbonation. I am usually not that fond of overly sweet beer but the maple aromas kind of kept me interested in this beer.
