Smells like maple. Tastes....bizarre. Like a maple ice cream shake. It tastes good, but the palate is goofy. Weird creaminess. Tons of maple sweetness. Courtesy of ThePatrickMan.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is toffee, wood, maple. Medium mouth, caramel, pure sugar, boozy, good.

1st and only slight miss from them. A touch flat and muddled. The maple sweetness is nice but that’s all there really is bedsides a touch of alcohol. Just ok.

Berard (627) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a creme colored head that lingers around the edges. Rich maple aroma over medium carbonation. It's a tasty brown but it could be a bit sweeter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with a fairly sizeable head. Maple syrup aroma. Sweet maple throughout, burnt brown sugar, caramel malt, grainy, a bit of wood. Medium body. Dessert beer. You have to REALLY like Maple to dig this one.

750 ml bottle to taster. Looks solid; a cloudy caramelish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with a less than balanced blend of caramel, grain, and maple syrup. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Soft and underwhelming.

On tap @ Lawson’s Farmers Market.

Appearance: Hazy dark orange-y with a small off-white head and a bit of lacing.

Aroma: Quite malty and grainy with a sugary impression, maple, candi, alcohol and a bit of spices.

Taste: On the sweet side, almost cloying for me. Grains, maple, alcohol, spices and raisins.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Sweet and sugary finish with alcohol, spices and maple notes.

Overall: I didn’t liked this one that much, partly because it’s really not a kind of brew I’m fond of but also because it’s cloying, unbalanced and lack of refinement. It packs a decent amount of flavors, but it’s not an cohesive beer.

On tap at the brewery anniversary bottle release. Hazy copper pour with thin foamy white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, woody and earthy notes. Taste is malty, light maple, malty caramel sweetness that’s a little cloying. Palate is full bodied med carbonation. Decent.
