AleRider78 (1499) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours an extremely large amount of foamy, brownish head that stays for a while. Leaves thick lacing. Has a dark brown appearance. Sweet aromas of chocolate chips, mints and mild cinnamon. Some fairly strong maple aromas all around. Very strong alcohol taste slightly masked by chocolate and cookie dough flavours. Fairly sweet with notes of mints and vanilla, as well as light wheat. The maple is pretty noticeable throughout. Huge thick mouthcoating sensation with a nice warming sensation. Very good and flavourful but just too much to take in by yourself with a 750ml bottle. Made to share. Always great packaging!

Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
750ml bottle. Reddish brown pour. Small off-white cap. Big maple syrup aroma with additional notes of brown sugar, dark fruits and spices. Taste is not as heavy going as I expected and drinkability is good for the strength. Nicely put together.

Drucken på Linköpings Beer Expo. Brun, rejält grumlig med stort skum. Doftar mycket vanilj, torkad frukt, kryddor, lönnsirap och trä. Gigantiskt stor och fyllig smak med sirap, vanilj, torkad frukt, fatkaraktär, lite alkoholhetta och en kryddig avslutning som rundar av sötman. Munkänslan är mjuk och len. En fantastisk öl, speciellt om man gillar lite söta saker. En av de bästa öl jag fått äran att smaka.

Drank this 11.5 per cent liquid sugar bomb in a patch of green in front of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre at ComicCon. Delicious

Bottled. Reddish brown colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is syrup sweetness along with some bready and toffeeish malts, a bit of vanilla as well as some wood and mild alcohol sweetness. Flavour is sweet malts along with some vanilla, fudge and mild chocolaty and alcohol sweetness to it. Smoothly balanced and a quite nice brew.

rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2016
750 ml bottle. Thanks to Timo A! Murky reddish brown color with a tiny light tan head. Sweetness, syrup, maple syrup, sugar, vanilla and malt in the aroma. The flavor is alcohol, bitterness, dryness, super sweetness, vanilla and sweetener. More alcohol version of the Acadian Groove. I can't love both. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Sweet caramel and syrup on the nose, malts, subtle vanilla and marshmallow. Sweet malty flavor, some caramel, vanilla, cocoa and milky chocolate, some ripe fruits also, can’t really dig up the wheat here. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Nice but not their best.

Hopmaestro (1819) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle at ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is sweet toffee, vanilla, syrup and you understand that this is a taste bomb. Taste is super sweet maple syrup, honey, nuts, caramel and of course - alcohol. Super nice brew, but a typical share bottle.

Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Brundisig vätska med beiget fluffigt skum. Rejäl arom av kola, torkad frukt, knäck och en massa lönnsirap. En del rökighet och ekfat (trots att den inte är lagrad?). Smaken är samma. Bra, stor kropp. Lagom humlebett i avslutningen. Utan tvekan bästa ölen under hela dagen. Hamnar högt upp på min lista. Ordentligt trevlig rakt igenom, mums!

mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 19, 2015
Red body with low head. Aroma has high candi sugar sweetness, burn caramel, cherry. Heavy maple syrup, licorice. Honey, nuts and light chocolate. Taste has a lot of vanilla, crapes. It is like eating a sweet breakfast. Chestnut in the after taste. Really complex, a lot of flavors and well balanced. Holy shit. Body is full, medium to high carbonation.
