skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2017
*12/24/2016 750ml growler poured into a Lambic.info geuze tumbler. A~ black with a dark tan fluffy head and a little lacing. S~ mostly extremely sweet maple syrup followed by a little roasted malt. T~ follows the nose way less roasted malt here... sweet as could be with slight vanilla and charred oak from the bourbon. M~ extremely clawing and syrupy. slight carb. O~ its like drinking the HF BA maple syrup straight... and i should know! i’ve done that plenty of times haha! while it is delicious i like some beer in my beer... i would have been happier putting this on some waffles haha

750 ml. growler @ "Adam Chandler Visiting (for real this time)" Tasting. Filled sometime in December 206 I believe. Meant to be cellared max 2 weeks. Mainly because the amount of sugar in this which might have cause it to exposed. No one was harmed. Black with almost no head; Nose is mellow umami, surprisingly big hazelnut, roasted notes, big sugar, sweet, not overly so. Taste is sweet maple, sugar, big pralines, slightly umami, chocolate syrup, hazelnut, faintly boozy. Low carbonation molasses & pralines body. Very neat stuff, could use bit more depth for me, slightly less umami, nice stuff all the same. Thanks to Marina for making vegan Magnum ice-cream coated with this beer. Amazing stuff.

Damn daniel. This maple syrup in this is rich and delicious, a thick roasty stout with a berfect balance to the maple syrup. Laser show.

Growler... Pours dark brown with no head, but the high viscosity brew fully coats the insides of my glass. The aroma features brownies and bourbon. Not much maple syrup here. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and tickling. The flavor is sweet, lightly boozy and toasty. A touch nutty in the finish. A nice sipper. Bottle courtesy of the south Florida crew!

Bottle pours dark brown with a small tan head. Great aroma of bourbon, toffee, maple, mild roast, resin, vanilla. Barleywine like. Very sweet, lots of good maple, bourbon heat. Full bodied, sticky, soft carbonation. Very solid-state for those who like the sweet stuff.

Growler courtesy of Gatorguy92 for this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is maple syrup, sweetness, chocolate, booze, sugar, and awesomeness. Flavor is similar with chocolate, maple, more maple, sugar, and more maple. Medium to full in body and lingering maple and chocolate in the finish. Awesome overall.
