Pours black with ruby hues...thin mocha head. Aroma has burnt wood, coffee, dark cocoa, and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows suit...adds a touch of dark fruit...touch if maple and charred wood are showcased nicely. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a dry, charre wood finish.

Thanks to Adrian. Dark, foamy pour and a cool, old school label. The aroma is roasty, sweet, and full of grain. A rich, dark, bold flavor but I don’t really taste much maple sugar. Apparently it is made with maple water - i.e. sap added to the brew kettle. Very good.

Bottle share, thanks guys. Pour is dark brown/pretty close to black with a small tan head that darkens into a slight orange as it dissipates. Aroma is of roasted coffee, burnt chocolate, earth, and espresso. Flavor is of burnt wood, ash, very bitter chocolate, and some slight sweetness from the maple. Alcohol is there but hidden well, not too complex but still good. Medium to heavy bodied.

Blind bottle shared. By Barrythebear, thanks Barry. Little smoke or roast there but no maple that I could pick up. I liked this but after knowing what it is I wished there was more maple.

750ml bottle that poured a mildly thick black sludge, aromas of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, and a smidge of maple syrup. Flavor is bitter burnt coffee, choclate, some nuts, and more maple flavor than expected as the aroma led me to belive. Outstanding brew!
