Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a minimal brown head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Molasses, raisins, bourbon, brown sugar and chocolate with only hints of maple.
Taste: Sweet, dark fruit, raisins, char, light smoke, roasty malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and booze with touches of maple (more so as it warms).
Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: Probably too sweet and boozy for me while not having enough maple flavours.
