Sample at Hopfest 2011 (KC). Pours a clear, dark amber. Aroma of molasses, wood, alcohol, peat. Flavor is brown sugar, oak, alcohol. Sweet and malty that packs a punch. I find this to be really good.

Tap at R’n’H. Pour is a deep amber color with a slight redish hue. Nose is of a light burnt sugar and some vanilla notes. Taste has the same notes as well as some bourbon with a old ale punch at the finish.

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.

On draft at Capones. Pours a deep maple caramel amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of maple syrup, light buttery notes and candied malt. Taste is much the same. Syrupy and boozy.

egajdzis (5248) - 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 (362) - 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.

Draught from Rattle. Strong syrupy maple nose. Sweet taste. A very good old ale. Low character count. Just kiddin. I really enjoyed.

HonusWagner (1315) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Big, syrupy as all hell, and super sweet. The standard amazing Founders maple nose mixed with the dreadful sweetness I thought Founders was capable of combating. Tastes like maple syrup poured on top of maple syrup with some figs and plums blended into the second topping of maple syrup.
