Description 

Enticing, rich and complex, this creation defies easy description. Our ‘once-a-year beer’ is brewed only during sugaring season with 100% maple sap from our local friends in VT. No water added! Just barley, hops, and ale yeast. In 2010 the Maple Tripple received a World Beer Cup® Bronze Medal for the Specialty Beer category. The 2012 Maple Tripple received a World Beer Cup® Silver Medal in the same category.

This beer pours a very deep copper with mahogany hues, a huge dense off-white head and great clarity. The aroma is intense and complex with rich vanilla & oaky liquor notes with lots of dark fruit (plums, cherries, raisins, currants) and melanoidins. There is also some light chocolate ntoes and a barrage of sweetness – toffee, deep caramel, brown sugar, maple, honey, molasses. The flavor is similar to the aroma but even more intense towards the caramel, maple and sugary notes. It is full bodied with a creamy, smooth mouthfeel despite the alcohol. Bottled in June 2015, time definitely did this one well. I had this one fresher before and the alcohol was much more apparent which made for a less pleasing experience. Now about all it could use is to be a touch drier, but there is so much complexity to the sweetness that is there.
