Aroma of grains like a bad scotch, nice color, clear with an amber colour and no head. Taste of butternut squash with a syrupy palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/25/13
Aroma: The nose is very sweet, maple syrup, honey, caramel, toffee, and apple
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-orange color with a frothy beige head and mid lace
Flavor: The taste is heavy sweet, and component-wise it basically matches up with the nose
Palate: It is medium bodied and has a pretty solid feels that stays away from getting too sticky
I thought this was a decent, but ultimately too sweet beer. I certainly didn’t hate it, but it just doesn’t quite do it for me.

Where’s the maple? Kinda OK, not a horrible beer. A little sweet, maybe it’s maple, IDK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted from a 650mL bomber bottle. Pours clear dark orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace, and sticky residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is marshmallow and caramelized brown sugar with some bread and light bitterness. The flavor is nicely sweet up front, with the marshmallow and maple, moving to the more bitter burnt brown sugar. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium sweet maple and bitter burnt brown sugar finish.

Amber pour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with some caramel. Maple flavors are definitely there and the mouthfeel is is nice and full. Decent, a few off flavors detract but it’s allright.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a clear copper color leaving the same color body. A nice one inch white foamy head appears and concaves to leave some nice foamy lacing around the sides of the pint glass. The body is light enough for some carbonation to be seen rising. The smell is all about the maple up front pretty much masking everything else even after some warming, I was hoping some other possible flavors might show up, but not this time. The taste is exceptionally sweet, perhaps a bit too much maple, I wasn’t expecting this. The palate is about a medium and very smooth, possibly because of the extra maple in this beer. Overall, I really wasn’t expecting this beer to be this good. Though its more of a dessert beer because of the sweetness, I’d probably have it again. I will say its very different for the style.
