3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unique smokiness and a biting bitterness really bring this beer together. I did not really get much in the way of maple flavor.

Bottle from wegmans. Pours clear amber with a large off white head and solid lacing. The aroma has a mesquite note and a bit of pancake. The taste is medium smoky, sweet maple, and a bit of sweetness on the finish. I dig it.

A: Deep Amber hue, Off White Foamy Head, some Lacing
S: Deep Smoke, Roasted Malts, mild Sweetness

Overall, an average beer, heavy on the smokies, decent roasted malt, too mild on the Maple. Inconsistent IMO, not balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid ruby-brown with big off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, with some rauchy and acidic and maple notes. Tastes caramel malty, with notes of maple sweetness, mild roasty and rauchy flavor, and mild hops and some brown sugar in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a large foamy beige head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is a mix of sweet toasted malt, light smoke, and a slight maple note. The flavor is just lightly smoky, quite a bit of maple sweetness that lingers past the smoke on the finish. This is really easy drinking and doesn’t get tiring even with all the sweetness. I can deal with sweet beers, as long as it’s not from crystal malt. A touch clingy but not overly so, with fizzy soft carbonation. I quite liked this.

22oz bottle 6/21/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-38° in English Pint-Pours murky amber with a huge loose off white head. Aroma of smoke, malt, and hops. Taste of the same with a small amount of maple coming thru. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but I think I have an old or infected bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear orange with a foamy cream head. Smells of smoke, bread, sweet floral. Taste is moderately sweet, mildly bitter, mildly smoky, lightly spiced - barely a hint of maple, grassy hops. A lot going on but it doesn’t come together strongly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish amber with a medium fizzy beige head that quickly dissipates with decent lacing. Sweet aroma, caramel, maple syrup, light smoke and ash. Flavor is similar, only lightly sweet with a touch of maple. Smoky notes more prominent. Light ashy bitterness and astringence. Not a bad effort.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber poured into Oxbow snifter.
Smell is a bit smoky and sweet. You can definitely tell there is maple in there
Taste is a little sweet with maple and smoky undertones. There's a really nice hop balance here too. If there was too much sweetness, this would just not work. Fortunately it does.
Overall, Three Heads is new to Maine, and from what I've tried, they make some really solid beers. Bromigo, is definitely a winner. Will revisit.
