Tessic (845) - Brantford, Ontario, - 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.

Flaska bishops marina - lite spritt doft med toner av lönnsirap. Bärnstensfärgad med beigt skum. Tydlig smak av lönnsirap och en värme från alkoholen.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 [5522-20130622] Tap. Super maple syrup aroma. Clear, bright amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Super sweet honeyed maple sugar flavour. Medium body is quite sweet. Interesting but overly powerful. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

A dark copper amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, beautiful mix of vanilla and maple, smooth fruity malt, light orange pulp, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a sweet pinot de charente with apple brandy, maple, vanilla, light coffee, alcohol burn, very pleasant and complex. On tap at Arrow and Loon.

beer_est_deus (694) - örebro, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
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.

Reimer96 (1279) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
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.
