3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the taproom for Chickow! day. Looks like chickow... slightly hazy brown with a small light tan head. The maple is super sweet in the aroma. Some nutty aromas in the background with chocolate and candy. The flavor is a nice bite of maple syrup, that fades to the nutty and sugary flavors that you expect from the Chickow! Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Draft at the RBWG Grand Tasting - thanks for the keg! Pours a hazy amber color with a finger of beige head. Notes of maple, vanilla, hazelnut, brown sugar, tobacco, and toffee. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, smooth mouthfeel. Great maple aftertaste. Re-Rate: Huge maple in the nose, almost a bit too much, and more balance in the flavor. Affirming prior rating, but switching things around a bit.

pours dark brown with a thin tan head. aroma is like pancakes with maple syrup and a touch of cocoa. flavor is roasty with dark chocolate and lots of maple...very authentic maple syrup flavor...some dry leaves. mouthfeel is full and very silky/slick with a roasty dry finish. i prefer this version to the PB chickow...this tastes much more authentic.

2014 RBWG Grand Tasting.
Dark brown body under a tan head.
This has the aroma of a maple chocolate candy.
The flavor is sweet and follows the aroma.
A bit too sweet for my tastes.
