Very strong maple aroma and very sweet taste on a light bodied and easy to drink beer.

[Tap] Pours a very dark shade of brown with little head. Sweet aroma is mostly of molasses, but with hints of maple as well. Taste is of brown sugar, caramel, dough and lots of chalky/grainy dark malts. Syrupy character. The flavor profile seems a little disjointed between the chalky malts and syrupy maple, but it was OK.

Big malt aroma and flavor. It's bock fest where I'm at and this one is a welcome change of pace. Draught pour is ruby dark and the maple background is delightful.

Sour. Initially didn’t like to much but grew on me and thought it was ok. Not sweet like maple but tart.

jcnielsen (2005) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with off white head. Maple syrup, cream, milky aromas. Roasty, maple syrupy, burnt, sweet flavors. Pretty sweet. Wouldn’t be bad for a fall or winter seasonal.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle in KC, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a hazy, dark reddish brown appearance with a light brown. Woody/sappy, thick caramel, syrupy, a touch fruity aroma. A bit thin, sort of herbal bitter, moderately sweet, burnt sugar, woody, chocolate flavor. Kind of interesting.

Dogbrick (7666) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Sample at the Hills Market beer tasting on 05/30/2013: Dark reddish-brown color with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of grainy malt and maple. Medium body with flavors of maple, roast nuts and doughy malt. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Patrickctenchi (3458) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours deep, rubied-brown with a thick, light brown head. Aroma is lightly mapled, malt and sugar. Taste is chocolate, malty.. again a little maple... Tasty, but more bock than maple.

Dragonfly1 (487) - Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Overall a good, rich, flavorful bock for the spring season. Aroma is that vibrant bock cinnamon and spice, with a palette of browns and reds in my glass. Sweet malt and brown sugar balance nicely with more cinnamon spice. Not getting much maple syrup, but definitely getting molasses and black licorice. I like this, just on the right side of the sweet-o-meter.
