Pours amber with white head. Nose is a stinging booze, caramel. Maple vanilla in taste...waiting for some barrel but other flavors over power. Age might be in order. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the February 2014 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a golden color with lots of tiny floaters and a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bourbon, coconut, bread and booze. The flavor was tangy and boozy caramel, honey, bread and coconut. Long tangy coconut, honey and bread finish. Full bodied and syrupy. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5 ounce taster glass at the Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids. Sweet Repute is a bulldozer. The aroma was amazing, comprised of bourbon, sweet maple syrup, hot liquor, and a fresh baked rhubarb pie’s sugars and crust. The taste was really assertive: boozy, bourbon loaded, dark fruits and maple syrup. This is a sipper beer, approached best in moderation. 5 ounces was plenty. Medium bodied and low in carbonation. Overall Sweet Repute is good for a quick dance, but she’d wear you out in no time if you went out with her for the night.

Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, bourbon and butterscotch. Full and chewy body with flavors of maple bourbon, doughy malt, herbal hops and a bit of vanilla. The finish is boozy with a sweet maple and oaky bourbon aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.
