Holy shit, this tastes like a blueberry Tootsie Roll pop, replete with natural fruit, vanilla, marshmallow, and a ton of chocolate; it’s sweet and thicc but not cloying, which is A-okay by me! It’s smooth, creamy, and very flavorful, yet lightly bitter.Earned the Iron Man (Level 60) badge!
Definitely better than the 2020 batch, this is still aggressively maple forward on all facets of the drinking experience. There’s some coffee and dark chocolate on the nose and palate, but the maple dominates everything. It has a better mouthfeel though.Earned the Local Beer is Better (September–December 2021) badge!
First impression? Awesome vanilla and roastiness on the nose and palate; it’s a touch bitter yet also semisweet, which is a fun balance. Pretty good mouthfeel albeit a touch slick. I’ll wait to give final review after it warms up.
