2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased in Golden BC in October 2011. Pours black with an off white head that lasts the whole way. Aromas are very subtle. Some maple and some malt. Not much of a maple taste. Very relaxed. Some roasted notes and gentle malts. Creamy body, decent session beer.

Pours black with a small frothy brown head and fades to a ring. Aroma is roasted malts, light mocha, a little sweet maple and a touch of smoke. Taste is much the same, I would have liked a little more maple since it is in the name. Thanks to Reimer for this.

Drinking from a 650 cl bottle.
In the aroma berries.
The clear brown beer has a medium brown head.
In the taste sweet berries like raspberry. Maple syrup when the beer is still cold, when it warms up the taste gets more bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Very dark brown color, medium but dissipating tan head, little bit of lacing. Aromas of roasted caramel and chocolate. Very sweet taste of maple, chocolate, roasted caramel. A bit sour finish. Coffee and bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation, medium body. Overall quite smooth, but a bit too sweet maple porter.
PL: Butelka 650ml z Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do kieliszka. Bardzo ciemna, brunatna barwa, średnia lecz zanikająca jasna piana, nieco lejsingu. Aromaty palonego karmelu, czekolady. Dość słodkie w smaku za sprawą syropu klonowego, czekoladowe, palony karmel. Nieco kwaśne pod koniec. Kawowy, goryczkowy posmak. Niskie nasycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując całkiem gładki, ale nieco za słodki, lekki porter z domieszką syropu klonowego.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is surprisingly light, some roasty malt and chocolate, a little honey and maple. Flavour is very sweet, lots of honey, with only a little roasty bitterness to balance. Meh.

Not bad considering the brewery. Pours black. Aromas are maple. Flavors are sweet and sticky. Bubblegum and maple. A bit thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think this, but I’d like more intensity in the flavour and aroma. Sweet, roasty and rich, but not a lot of maple. Bottle shared with northropfrye.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark black body, brown head, nice lacing, quite attractive. Good head retention. Initially a sweet robust aroma, touch of maple, chocolate milk. Taste is like a sweet foreign stout, dried fruit, not overly mapley. Under-rated.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque light black with a nice sized head. Relatively minimal aroma dominated by roast, but vanilla and maple notes are present as well. Thick and creamy stereotypical porter texture. Perhaps slightly less smooth though. Flavour consists of heavy roast, vanilla, slight maple, and oddly a wee bit sour. The flavours are fine, but it simply doesn’t flow very well. The sweet/sour flavours are odd. Not terrible though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate milk powder and a hint of wood. Flavors are of chocolate syrup, maple, toasted nuts, and vanilla. Medium bodied and fairly sweet, but finishes with a bit of woody astringency. Not bad as an after dinner pint.
