The recipe for Bearwalker was among one of the first recipes written by Brewmaster Bailey years ago. Bearwalker is a Maple Brown and the recipe pays homage to Bailey’s home state of Vermont by having 100% Vermont Maple Syrup added to it. The result is a very distinctive maple syrup flavor that truly sets this beer apart and warms your belly.

Sweet on the nose. Some maltiness. Subtle, underwhelming. Like the idea of the beer more than the actual beer.

Ferris (5245) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draft - Sweet toasted grains. Clear dark amber with a rich beige head. Toasted malts and a bit nutty with maple in the finish. Not a fan of maple beers, but expect to taste it more than I am in this.

Flight at heaven and ale with Brian. Maple/sweet aroma and taste at first but not overpowering. Great finish. Thick beer. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DCLawyer (1559) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Draft->shaker. Brown with small offwhite head. Aroma: sweet malt and bread. Taste is similar, with molasses and a touch of added maple. Feels a bit contrived and forced, and would not want more than one at a sitting.

decaturstevo (5262) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Copper pour with frothy tan head. Arom is the brown sugar and light malt. Flavor is sweet malt with nice undertones of the maple syrup. Medium bitter finish and fizzy.

On tap at the brewery. I’m beginning to notice a theme with Jackalope beers. They appreciate subtlety and don’t overwhelm the flavor of their beers with the flavoring, but rather use it to supplement an already nice beer. In this case the slight maple syrup flavor takes this outside the realm of simple brown beer and makes it just a bit more interesting.

jbrana (510) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Sweet and malty with flavors of maple, coffee, and chocolate. Not bad. Fairly drinkable, but nothing too special.
