4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear, honeyed-amber with a thin, off-white head.
Fruity aroma....vanilla, a hint of mint....and almost a coconut note.
Taste is sweet, butterscotch, bourbon...wood....
Boozy, yet with a playful brightness to it.

Bottle @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Light amber pour with a small head. Strong donut batter sweetness. Toasted nut raisin bread. Caramel. Flavor of maple bar, trail mix. Caramel. Boozy but not as tough to drink as I feared it would be. Full body, soft carb.

This beer is so smooth for a wheat wine! Pours clear translucent amber with a small beige ring for a head. Aroma brings light malty sweetness with a bit of maple spritzed in in the sweet level. Flavor brings sweet malts that transition into pleasantly sweet maple syrup.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features graininess, berries, caramel and red-hot ethanol. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of big bourbon bitterness and heat, and gooey caramel sweetness. Finishes bittersweet (more sweet than bitter) with plenty of lingering alcohol warmth. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel and toffee and sweetness from the malts, some alcohol/bourbon and some oak, vanilla, maple, some bitterness to balance the sweetness. Flavor the same with nice blend of everything even though it is really sweet. Smooth, thicker texture. A unique beer but I don’t know if I’d want to drink a lot of this.

750ml bottle courtesy of Ernesto987. I was bummed it didn’t get opened at the tasting we were all at, so he gave it to me, how cool is that. Pours a lovely blood orange with a thin white ring. A couple of chunky floaties keep the appearance rating from being a 5. Intoxicating nose with aromas of maple, brown sugar, bourbon and oak. Flavor is a rich combination of the above mentioned things. What a mix! Full bodied and gut warming. Nice.

750ml bottle shared at tasting. Lots of floaties. Creamy smooth golden sugary barrel notes. Butterscotch...in a good way. Foamy, soapy head. Very easy on the palate. Delicious. Leaning into dessert beer territory. Barrel bomb. Nice.
