Bottle. Pours red with thin white head that dissipates. Sweet maple smell over light carbonation. Thick almost like maple syrup and a slight boozyness. Sweet maple flavor with a bit of caramelized sugar on the back. I'm not a big sweet fan but this is first rate.

Bottle thanks to lefthyzer. Pours a cloudy amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong maple oak and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with strong maple upfront, light candy sugar, and light boozy finish. Very good, hiding alcohol well, really enjoyed this one.

very cool beer. very prevalent maple flavors, lots of sweetness and some vague acidity in the finish is nice. other than that, it tastes exactly how you’d expect, like fresh maple, and earthy sweetness.

Pours a deep amber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is rich sweet maple sap mingling with a bit of earthy booze and belgian spice. The palate follows with a full rich mouthfeel and great maple notes that lead into a caramel booziness that is heightened slightly by some background esters and caramelized malts. Really a great example of the art of maple brewing !

2012 brew, 2013 bottle.
Smells of burnt brown sugar, ginger snaps, and molasses. slight hint of an old ale or scotch ale type beer. Taste is a lot of the same. Very mellow, smooth, and easy drinking. Surprised how much I like this. Slight bit of cinnamon?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, sent from adamjackson (thanks a lot, Adam), pours a hazy dark copper with a miniscule off-white head. Aroma of maple syrup galore, brown sugar and caramel, though the maple is most pronounced. Flavour is intensely sweet, with treacle toffee, maple, caramel and brown sugar. Pretty cloyingly sweet, with a super soft carbonation (almost totally flat) and high viscosity. Gets a bit much to drink, but it’s surely complex and an enjoyment to sip.
