Bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma is a bit thin with a sweet grain and fruit note as well as a hint of caramel. Flavor is thin as well with sweet grains some fruit and a bit of caramel and maple in the finish. The lack of maple really let me down.

Thanks to Sean for this 22oz bottle poured in a perfect pint glass... This pours a clear medium copper with about a full finger of off white head. Good retention leaves a solid ring, ok lacing... the aroma is light and sweet. Maple is the main note throughout, also some honey. Boring... The taste is borderline bad slight maple, stale wet grains, medicinal and flat. This just doesn’t taste very good, not appealing or new. I had a tough time drinking my pour.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours an amber golden body with a white head and light retention. Strong brown sugar notes, grape soda and what feels artificial like flavor despite knowing real maple is used. Honey and grape soda tones a hint of iodine and brown sugar. Eh not so great.

emacgee (4279) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Copper amber with one finger of light tan head. Nose is subdued and grainy, papery with some musty ass. Flavor: see above. No me gusta.

Simple, mostly forgettable brown-ale-like object that is kind of sweet. Hides the 8% alcohol well. Thanks to whoever shared this at post-EBF tasting. I guess.

j12601 (7386) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle at the double 5k tasting. Pours a hazed brown with a thin beige head. Toast, light sweet maple and big grains. Medium bodied, grainy and toasty. Long grains on the finish, but not much maple overall.

Bottle shared at Paul and Ryan’s 5,000th rate tasting. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma, toffee, with some light maple notes. The flavor has toffee, maple, and light floral hops. Pretty good.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2011
22oz bottle from a recent exchange (batch#181, bottle#82)... pours a reddish mahogany toffee hue with a thin light off-white head that quickly dwindles down to a wispy film... aroma dark fruit and yeasty esther upfront followed by more of a sweep maple note that is semi-difficult to pick out. much more akin to a strong belgian dubbel almost.... flavors fail to deviate much from what the aroma offered with continued emphasis on semi-sweet dark fruits and sugar while ending with a mild bitterness that lingers on the palate. thin to medium bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. not a big fan but at least my wife can drink it.
