Note: im working on developing my palate Smell of malt and alcohol. Very low head with good lacing. Dark copper color. Tastes very strongly of alcohol and malts and maple syrup.

I just don't get the style. Tastes like I left a Schlitz out in the sun for a fee days and then drank it. I guess a good example of the style, but I just can't appreciate it. Made me sick for the rest of the day.
