3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Clear brown pour, very red actually, quite pretty. Aroma is quite nutty, well done there, molasses notes, fruity and a tad boozy. Taste of rich caramel malts, nutty, kind of reminiscent of a Belgian quad. Heavy body, low carbonation. Nice sipper.

This is a heavy brown ale. And definitely has a nutty aroma and taste. When hitting the slopes in the rockies, this beer will warm you up with a bear hug that’ll keep you coming back for more!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown and hazy. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle was included (intentionally) in the pour. The tiny head soon dies away, leaving little lacing. Sweet and rich aroma with hints of toffee and maple over a solid roasted malt base, with dates and some other dark fruits. A rich, fruity and malty flavor, as the aroma suggests. Hints of raisins, dates and toffee. Good sweet/bitter balance for this flavor profile. Medium body and carbonation.
O: Very nice, and rather fruity, maple brown. High ABV is partly hidden. Better with some warming

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, russin, karamell, farinsocker, ekträ med toner av torkad frukt och choklad. Lättdrucken med en sträv och chokladbitter beska. En aning söt men det överlever jag.

At Malmö brygghus. I did not have problems with any strong taste of maple. Felt it rather balanced and nice.

This is an okay brown, but the nuttiness is overwhelmed by the maple flavor. Slick mouthfeel.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. Light brown with small head. Quite sweet and boozy brown ale. A little too over the top for my taste. Reminiscent of rubbing alcohol.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown with quickly fading head and not much lacing. Aroma is chocolate malty and slightly fruity. Taste is sweet, syrupy, molasses, some alcohol. Not very balanced, but not obviously high ABV either. This just wasn’t doing it for me.
