Bomber. Very pronounced maple aroma with notes of vanilla. Pours copper colored with a thin tan head and not much lacing. Taste is toasted malt to start followed by sweet make syrup and some vanilla. Finishes dry with a bit of a bitterness. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy chestnut with a fairly icky an head. Malty aroma has notes of maple and vanilla - no surprise there. Flavor is quite sweet, almost a bit too sweet, vanilla and maple syrup notes plus a toasted malt undertone. Texture is thick and syrupy, not too fizzy. Fine ONI a small dose - don’t believe I could take a whole bomber at once. Take your turn.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/29/13
Aroma: The nose is maple and vanilla over coffee, chocolate, and some caramel as well
Appearance: This beer pours a caramel-orange color, with a small off-white head and mild lace
Flavor: The flavor is quite sweet, with everything the nose promises, very little balance
Palate: It is medium bodied, has an average carbonation, and a fairly lengthy, sticky finish
This one is pretty interesting. It is pretty tasty, but also very sweet. I enjoyed it well enough, but it is a little too much unbalanced sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-ish color; no head or lace. A bit boozy. Notes of caramel & vanilla, reminds me of an English Barleywine but not quite as well polished. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber from Evergreen Discount. Brown/amber and pretty clear with a small, dissipating tan head. Sweet aroma of maple syrup, caramel malts, brown sugar, vanilla, banana bread and light chocolate. Similar flavor with light fruity esters. Medium body with a slick, oily feel and light carbonation. Lingering, sweet finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sweet bready caramel malt and alcohol aroma, very light maple and vanilla. Clear deep copper with a large beige head. Sugary bready malt, wood, and alcohol flavor. Medium body, average carbonation. Really not much maple character at all, and much too sweet for my personal taste.
