Opaque black beer. Tidy but short lived tan head. Slightly sour dark malts on the nose. Light smooth palate. Sweet dark malt. Traces of vanilla wood, bourbon and milk chocolate. All really well integrated. The wood gets stronger towards the semi dry finish. A lovely sweet barrel aged beer!

Bottle courtesy of Ryan - thanks! My handwriting started to degenerate at this point in the evening, but I know I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Clear reddish brown, flat. Aroma of raisins and whiskey. Taste is sweet butterscotch and roasted coffee. Nice.

A: The pour is thick and black with a rather minimal tan head on top. S: The bourbon stands out a bit more than the other maple beers, but this provides a bit more vanilla and booze aroma. The maple is somewhat subtle and provides a bit of sweetness. The base beer gives off a bit of dark malts and milk chocolate with maybe just a touch of dark fruits. T: The maple and bourbon are much more balanced here with the maple really shining through and providing a sweet syrup flavor. Vanilla from the barrel along with sweet chocolate and a bit of bourbon on the finish. The sweetness from the base old ale is primarily in the form of dark fruits and milk chocolate. M: A really thick, chewy, and creamy feel on the tongue. Full bodied with a smooth, low carbonation. D: This one is another in the great line of Maple barrel aged beers from Founders. A really top notch beer that I’m pleased to have landed a growler of.

Snifter at JeanRo Bistro. Poured black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, wood and maple aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet malt and bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a standout beer.

Tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Dark brown/black appearane with a small brown head. Bourbon, dark malts and the maple syrup is obvious in the nose. Initially a sweet, vanilla flavor followed the dark chocolate maltiness of the Baltic Porter with the whole thing tasting like a mild maple syrup. The bourbon is unfortunately a little too dominate in my mind but still a great beer.

On tap at CAH. Poured a deep brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark fruitiness, maple syrup, and wood. Tastes of chocolate, vanilla, maple syrup, marshmallows, molasses, dark fruits, and wood. Alcohol content well hidden. Nice...

Served on draft at the Michigan Summer Beerfest, 2010, as part of RBSG festivities. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon with maple, anise, toffee and other dark malty notes. The taste is huge bourbon, anise-like spices, toffee and a bit of raisin. Medium-full bodied. A big beer and fairly tasty.
