Great Notion Brewing BA Double Stack
"Wow! Maple! There are some vanilla overtones and hints of roast malt, but the maple hits like a Boston tidal wave. A wonderful combination of maple syrup, coffee, and chocolate dancing in a vanilla, caramel, and slightly marshmallow-like bourbony vessel. Just enough body to stand up to all those flavors. Noticeable, but in no way harsh, alcoholic warmth. Exquisitely well-balanced base beer."
