MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle sampled at studio 1 with William and Holly. Another odd brew that turned out great. Notes of wood, booze, maple, vanilla, some ginger bite. The warming finish topped it off quite nicely.

Boutip (6014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle: Poured an amber/copper color ale with a small foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of toffee notes with intense bourbon notes and loads of residual sugar. Taste is quite the extreme mix of huge bourbon notes with warming alcohol with some toffee and caramelized cereal notes. The level of residual sugar is too high in my opinion which lessen the drinkability of this beer. Body is pretty full with OK carbonation with quite a bit of warming alcohol. Type of beers that needs to be share 15 ways in order to enjoy small sample due to limited drinkability and too mush residual sugar notes.

I kept this since it was released (2013?) because I thought time would mellow out the clash of maple syrup and bourbon booziness. I wasnt disappointed. All the flavors worked well together: maple, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, and more. Wish I had picked up another.

Alphadelic (2179) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Strong maple and alcohol aromas. Sweet and thick. REALLY sweet, with a good strength, not much burn. Very rich and mellow. Vanilla is dominant, and some brown sugar. It has a lot of flavor, but not too many layers. It punches you hard with what its got.

furthur (984) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Finally opening this. Pretty, clear Amber beer, cream colored head faded to faint skiff, some lace. Aroma is raisin, date, grilled pineapple. Taste is super sweet, alcohol, some hops bitter. After getting a little used to the sweet alcohol, theres some vanilla and bourbon under there, and caramely syrup, and oak. Palate is rich, carbonation subdued. Cant say I enjoy this.

Hamirubi (571) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2015
15cl sample at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015), from a 75cl bottle bought at the festival shop. This barley wine is aged on bourbon barrels, and maple syrup was added. A sweet, sugary taste is overwhelming. You can just enjoy the roasted malts, the calvados hints, the bourbon notes, the spiritful ending. Wood and vanilla also. Too sweet for me, but still very enjoyable.

Maybe my tastebuds were all jacked up at the party I was at from all of the other beers that I had but I wasnt a fan.
