Dfonorow (1206) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2011
On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pours a dark amber/brown with an extremely small white ring of a head. Aroma is somewhat syrupy with notes of burnt sugar, maple, vanilla, and some bourbon. Flavor is like a sweet scotch ale, quite interesting and welcomed although a tad bit boozy and cloying. Notes of sweet brown sugar, maple syrup, and dark fruits.

egajdzis (5194) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of maple, caramel, vanilla, toffee, and light alcohol. Taste of maple, nuts, vanilla, tobacco, and alcohol. This was sweeter and stronger than the Cashew.

jethrodium (357) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a dark brown with a small white head that leaves a ring. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is maple syrup, caramel, sugar, and some bourbon. The initial taste is sweet with maple syrup, some caramel, and some bourbon. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Low carbonation. A bit one dimiensional with the maple dominating other flavors, but certainly enjoyable. I found a bit too sweet to be really good though.

Draft at Capone’ for the Founders event with Vinnie. 5oz flight. Pours a clearish amber orange with a small white-ringed head. Aroma of fresh cherry cheesecake, strawberrys, doughy malts, honey, and caramel icing. Medium bodied with a loose, clean, somewhat warm mouthfeel. Flavors of cherry, toffee, caramel, honey, and some bourbon notes in the boozy, warming finish. Excellent beer.
