3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Red body with low head. Aroma has high candi sugar sweetness, burn caramel, cherry. Heavy maple syrup, licorice. Honey, nuts and light chocolate. Taste has a lot of vanilla, crapes. It is like eating a sweet breakfast. Chestnut in the after taste. Really complex, a lot of flavors and well balanced. Holy shit. Body is full, medium to high carbonation.

Bottle. Dark amber colour. Aroma brutally complex. Chocolate, nuts, mollasses, rum, tobaco. Insane. Taste is brutal too. Complexity, sweet, mollasses, dried fruits, nuts and chocolate. Long lasting aftertaste. This is a masterpiece.

Aroma of maple, vanilla, cappuccino, caramel, some sweet fruits.
Tastes of caramel, maple, cappuccino, red fruits, some tea, some chocolate.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes quite sweet, with about all aromas mentioned before and some alcohol warmth.
Very nice. Maybe a tad too sweet, but really interesting and diverse aromas. Pretty filling, but a very nice sipper. Overall not my favourite style example, but a really characterful beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy brown colour with almost no head. Smells lots of vanilla, mapple, licoris and caramel. The taste is very sweet with lots of vanilla. The aftertaste leaves some spices and maple in the mouth but I think it has a medical taste which is not pleasant. This is a torture to my tongue.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 75cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark amber with a garnet glint when held up to the light. Initially very clear but once the second half of the bottle is served a thick opaqueness occurs. Aroma is massive maple, vanilla and sweetness. Taste is almost overpoweringly (but not quite) sweet with no bitterness to counteract the sweetness. The alcohol is so well hidden - it is only the pure strength of flavour and viscosity that gives a hint of the ABV. A truly remarkable dessert beer and one that is unlikely to disappoint any drinker because you very much know what you are entering into when you buy this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick boozy silky creamy smooth beer. Very sweet, very maple sirupy. Warming beer, but too boozy and aggressive in maple.
