Snowed In - Maple
Copper Kettle Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
You maple fiends will put maple syrup on anything. Pancakes? Duh. Peanut butter and banana sandwich? You bet. Chocolate-vanilla swirl ice cream? All the maple, baby!
The GABF medal-winning crew at Copper Kettle takes it one step further.
They doused their luxurious fan-favorite Oatmeal Stout with 1 gallon of real, robust Vermont Maple Syrup per barrel for uber potent maple magic. Then, they aged it for 9 months in award-winning Bourbon Barrels from Four Roses and Woodford Reserve!
For fans like @David G., the 2020 vintage of Snowed In - Maple is “literally perfect. My favorite beer got even better somehow!”
Aromas of sweet caramel and molasses waft up from the brim of the maple-laden pour. Take a sip, and the sweetness balances out against a warm, roasty base. Meanwhile, the towering 12.2% ABV stays well-concealed behind chocolatey malts and the toasted toffee flavors of top-shelf bourbon.
From start to finish, each sip of Snowed In - Maple goes down like a spoonful of creamy maple-bourbon ice cream covered in a chocolate liqueur drizzle! Pretty soon, we’ll see the lucky maple fiends who can get some will start pouring Snowed In - Maple on everything!

Thick, rich and a bit syrupy with a warming, maple finish.
A bit boozy, but very enjoyable if you have nothing to do after.
This had amazing tasting notes. Just ordered the next variant of it! Hoping it is just as good as this one.
One of the better barrel aged maple stouts out there!
Excellent beer with a lot of flavor. Maple, thick and tasty.
Powerful flavor! Rich maple syrup and a bourbon warmth finish!
Warm boozy/ roasty. Maple. And bourbon finish. As advertised. Enjoy on an empty stomach. Oh right!
Pretty perfect. Big, bold and boozy. Neither maple not bourbon is too overwhelming. Balanced. And one of the nicest pieces of can art I've seen.
Like candy in a can!
This was amazing! Complex flavors that blend so we'll together and explode in your mouth
This was fantastic. Deceptively delicious, I couldn’t tell it was 12.2% until I was halfway through the can.
Tad too sweet for me but still an excellent stout
Great coffee and maple as it warms. B+
Very good stout
Sweeter than my palate likes but overall, gives you exactly what you ask for. Fantastic.
Very nice stout! Thick, rich flavor!
Maple flavor very strong, beer is thick!
Very underwhelming... Not impressed at all
Boozy and rich- a nice fish to the day.
Solid but a little too sweet to be glorious
Lots of maple
Just as good as always
Chocolate, Coffee, Maple
Sweet and thick. The maple flavor is just the right amount.
Just wasn’t for me
We got this from Tavour. Chilled and poured into an imperial pint glass. Snowed in on a rainy snowy evening, so the stouty characters were what we were hoping for. Look: black with a small half finger size tan head that died away almost immediately. There was no lacing. It looked syrupy. There was an unpleasant residual from the pour on the top, a slimy left over probably from the canning wand. We fished it out with a spoon. Not good at all. Smell: roasty and sweet with hints of bourbon barrel. As it warmed we started to get a bit of maple, but honestly were hoping for more. Taste: roast, sweet dark chocolate, bourbon, booze and more roast. The end is a bit odd, Bren said bacon which made me look at her funny and say NO, but she insisted so I put it in here... I got no bacon, just saying. As it warmed we were hoping for maple because if you say maple on the can it should taste like maple, just saying. Feel: syrupy with some decent carbonation, the booze is a bit drying and makes you want to go back for something to chase off the dry Snowed in is their thing, but if maple is on the can, make it taste like maple not just bourbon barrel smokey sweet goodness... not quite what we were hoping for. Cheers anyway I guess!
