UPDATED: DEC 16, 2018 375ml bottle from Scrattings. 10%. Batch #2014HB101. Amber colour, afew bubbles on top and concentrated apple pie aroma. Taste is sweet, apple, apple pie, caramel, vanilla, woody oaky barrel, dried fruits, with some drying tannin. Syrupy mothfeel, medium to full bodied, low carbonation, dry & sweet finish. Very sippable. andrewje41 (6003) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2018
Bottle pour, picked up at The Garden Path, Burlington. Perhaps my first taste of an American Ice Cider? First barrel aged Ice Cider as well? If so, it's a good start. Shiny copper pour, clean. I agree with Matt, in that it's not as dense as others in the cider substyle, but it remains an incredible cider. Drinks really nice. Perfect taste for the season. luttonm (7594) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Found at Garden Path Fermentation in Burlington. Dark, clear amber. Still and heavy. Deep aroma, fairly sweet, autumnal and maple syrup. Touch of tannin structure to balance the obviously rather sweet body. Sticky edges, but never cloying. Some distant oak. Not the heaviest body of an ice cider I've had, nor the most precise. But this is still a wonderful product. Ferris (23113) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2018

375ml bottle @ Josh's. Pours a clear orange copper colour with no head. Nose is cooked apples and tart apples skins. Flavour is sweet apples, tart skins, with a light boozy quality. Medium bodied, no carbonation, and quite sweet and light aidity.

Tasting at Oakes' Manor; corked bottlebeerplace (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2018
Amber colour, bright. Lovely character of stewed apples and caramel, the aroma is intriguing, the flavour is less complex; balanced acidity; a bit short in the final; there is some astringency, and strong alcohol too.
375ml bottle at Josh&Sunshine place. Clear copper. Aroma is very smooth with sour and sweet red apples. Similar taste with noticeable American oak notes. Good one. Oakes (23701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2018
Golden-amber colour. On the nose, there's a soft, sweet apple nose, with a light nutmeg sort of aroma. Very sticky, sweet, has a nice tartness that lends balance. DiarmaidBHK (7370) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2018
Taster at Eden Winooski. Pours brown with no
Head. Nice apple and wood notes on the nose and tongue. Hides it’s booze well. Awesome! mcberko (28943) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2018
Bottle sample at Northeast Kingdom, pours a clear dark amber. Aroma brings out rich brandy oak notes, light acidity and some toasted treacly toffee. Flavour is intensely decadent, with loads of rich, complex apple brandy, oak, treacle toffee and caramel apple. Complex and wonderfully crafted. Lovely.
