Pours a deep amber/brown colour, clear with a frothy beige head. Aroma has tons of maple, noticeable bread and caramel malts as well. Taste is really sweet, pretty much like drinking syrup, mild bitterness but not much to speak of. Creamy on the palate, medium body and softer carbonation. Overall a very unique but average brew.

huineman (413) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 24, 2015
Dark tawny, tan head. Very high aromatic intensity. Reminds me of Pedro Ximenez Sherry dessert wines: figs, dates, acorns, caramel, chocolate and, of course, maple syrup. Sweet, creamy; very powerful but still fresh. Very long finish. It’s very easy to get a beer buzz with this different and very interesting ale.

VsXsV (2817) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Sample at SBWF 14. Murky copper liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, maple syrup, bread, caramel and light booze. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of maple syrup, vanilla and toffee. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Solid strong ale. Best Flying Monkeys beer I’ve had.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
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.

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska bishops marina - lite spritt doft med toner av lönnsirap. Bärnstensfärgad med beigt skum. Tydlig smak av lönnsirap och en värme från alkoholen.

@ Bishop Marina. Ja, atomen och smaken är fylliga. Fruktansvärt mycket lönn-sirap.

On tap at arrow and loon. Deep red-brown, thick frothy light tan head. Aroma of maple butter. That is all. Flavor consists if a strong malt base, lots of maple, some alcohol to finish.

Thick boozy silky creamy smooth beer. Very sweet, very maple sirupy. Warming beer, but too boozy and aggressive in maple.
