Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JAN 5, 2014
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.

Reimer96 (1222) - 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.

beer_est_deus (671) - 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.

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.
