A Note on This Beer
A lot of breweries tend to focus on bright, tropical sippers down in sunny Florida. Then there’s Cycle Brewing, named one of Thrillist’s 10 Best Breweries in the state for their mighty repertoire of intensely flavorful Barrel-Aged Stouts!
Today’s Cuvee – Just Maple (2020) offers a rich, maple-soaked taste of Cycle’s Dark Beer prowess.
It’s an 11% ABV Imperial Stout blend, aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with maple syrup for over 18 months!
This boozy treat smells like a stack of pancakes upfront, while on the tongue, it’s an all-out feast of opulent flavors. Every warming sip overflows with notes of chocolate, brown sugar, and oak, drizzled all over with mapley goodness. The brew finishes with a bit of honey and a final kiss of molasses.
And, that’s if you drink it right away. If you age it for 9 to 12 months longer, the beer’s complexity will deepen to bring out whispers of dark fruit, wrapped in an ultra-sippable, silky-smooth body.
Or better yet, you could just grab two bottles. After all, this is a limited indulgence that’s tough to find outside the sunshine state!
