COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beauty was created by filling two oak barrels with Lawson’s Finest Maple Nipple ale that had previously held a Maple Bourbon from Saxton’s River Distillery in Brattleboro, VT. We patiently waited a year, then blended the oak-aged beer with a small portion of fresh beer. The result is Sticky. 9% Alc.vol. Bottled - December 2013

callmemickey (2971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Dark brackish brown body, traces of an off-white head, and sparse lacing. Maple, boozy bourbon, oak, sticky sweet caramel. Medium bodied, a bit astringent, muddled, not what I was hoping for.

jredmond (5555) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle at Franks. Pours a deep murky brown body with no head, thin white lacing. Aroma is sweet maple, bourbon, grains, fruit and rich vanilla. Really nice nose. Mouthfeel is on the lighter, thinner side especially considering the amalgamation of such rich flavors.

djd07 (3820) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Clark. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong maple, booze, oak. Medium mouthfeel with sweet maple syrup, oak, and light boozy finish. Good.

Berard (331) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark leather brown with creme colored head that lingers. Sweet bourbon aroma over high carbonation. Flavors of toffee and vanilla with a balanced hop finish. A tad bit boozy. This is an outstanding beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 21, 2014
375 ml. bottle from PhillyCraft. Thanks Vin. This pours a deep mahogany color with an orange head. The aroma is very nice with strong maple syrup cut by some bourbon, vanilla, wood and caramel. Some plummy fruit in there as well. The flavor is strong with caramel, vanilla and maple syrup. The body is substantial, but not cloying. Maybe some background plums and raisins before a slight alcohol burn. It has some wood and more maple in the finish. I think they made a good choice cutting this with some fresh beer, as it keeps the intense flavors in check and smooths out the alcohol and body. A really nice fireside warmer.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2014
375 ml red-waxed bottle. Pours a great translucent ruby mahogany color with 1-finger tan head that laces well. Nose is woody oak, maple, malt. Smells great. Tastes malty, with a heavy oaky flavor, subtle maple enhancer flavor, and a rich and smooth finish. This one is stellar.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2014
375, waxed bottle. Poured an amberish color with an off white head. Maple, fruity, wood, lighter bourbon, vanilla, and molasses ... would like some more please ...

PhillyCraft (3391) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle shared with Brian, pours purple brown with light off white head. Aromas and flavor are maple, banana creme pie, vanilla, oak, bourbon, scotch and malt. Really rich in flavor but body is lighter and easy to get down. This one is so much better than regular nipple.

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. The beer is amber hued with a small, off-white head. Lots of booze in the aroma. Bourbon, oak, maple syrup, malt. The flavor brings ample maple character. Again, lots of booze presence. Sweet and indeed sticky on the palate. Aptly named. Another beer that is best in small samples.

Bottle. Thanks to the courtesy of strangers. Amber pour with tan head. Maple and light oak with bourbon overtones in the nose. Bourbon, maple and sweetness on the tongue. Very nice.
