Fierce Beer BA Maple VBM (12.5%)

Now this, boys and girls, this is something else.
Fierce have brewed a variation of their Very Big Moose with fenugreek and maple syrup, an then they’ve aged it in bourbon barrels for nine months.
Do I really need to say anymore?
Probably not, but I will.
This version of VBM is simply brilliant, thick and chewy and warm, rich with vanilla and pecan pie, all sticky toffee nuttiness and freshly baked pastry.
There’s a round and gloopy bath of maple syrup smothered pancakes, a hint of liquorice root, treacle tart and a slap of bitter and dry nettle greenery.
And if that wasn’t enough, as you drink a damp oak and warm boozy brandy meatiness builds, making the beer finish like a cognac served it’s a caramel pudding.
It’s sexy and warm, soft and sensuous.
Super Brewing.
