This smells just so wonderful. Belgian spice with maple syrup. Red orange appearance with little carbonation and head. A bit sweet on my tongue. It could use a bit more spice, but it is fun and different. Not sure if I would drink it again...

Dark-amber ale with a thin white head and no lacing in the glass. Dark molasses flavors and rich malty sweetness. Starts off rich and sweet and fades to a little tartness and astringency in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Treated as a Belgian styled brown ale as The Bruery suggests.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a ruddy dark brown color with a slim layer of a foamy white head that surfaces and dissipates fairly nicely. Clingy lacing graces the glass adequately.
The smell starts off with subtle Brown styled ale notes of rich lingering roasty nutty, caramel, toffee and toast. And then subtle spices of ginger and allspice. Maple does come with a sweetness to balance.
The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors and really brings the sweetness of the maple to coat the spices in a semi-sweet sticky fashion. Maple enunciates the aftertaste and gives off a subtle sly sticky sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs really light and the stickiness of the maple slaps my tongue with a big coating.
Overall, hmmm...this was one of my whales, so my expectations were set really high. I mean, I did like it a lot, but not a top 10 beer of mine, wishing the stickiness was dropped a bit, maybe a little bit less maple and I would think this would be a top ten beer.

Very sweet beer. Lovely burgundy amber pour with a light beige head, no noticeable carbonation. The aroma is malty, earthy and nutty with toffee and caramel malts dominating the middle. Too sweet for my liking with prune and raisin notes, Dubbel esque yeast flavours and an underlying richness throughout. Smooth, rich and malty with a medium to heavy body, silky finish but still too much residual sweetness. Yams are lost to me but for the underlying earthy notes

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy brown with a thin antique lace head. Aroma is perfumy. Taste is sweet toasted malt, fruit, mostly sour cherries, and some noticeable alcohol.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body with a slight orange hue and a diffuse head. Sharp pink bubblegummy aroma reminiscent of the slice of gum that would come in a Topps baseball card pack dominates, thought it is occasionally joined by breezes of allspice and vanilla. The body is again primarily bubblegum, but with an ample dose of vanilla and some touches of allspice. .
