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.

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 (3340) - 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.

Thanks to Ogglethorpe for sharing! Hazy amber pour with a thin off white colored head. Not much lace to speak of. Aroma is maple, cereal, and biscuit.. Unfortunately most the maple I picked up was on the aroma. Flavor is bread like, yeasty, sweet malts, and toffee.

Bomber shared by Bubba83 on BA. Pours hazy amber in color with a one-finger light khaki head and some lacing. The aroma is big cardboard box, maple, and sweet malts. Could be a little oxidized or something. The flavor is rather oxidized. Cardboard is the dominant flavor note. Besides that it’s caramel malt, slightly sweet, and maple syrup. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not great overall, definitely a bit off. I wonder if this is how it always is or if something happened to this bottle.

Thanks to warriorsoul for sharing. Pours a deep amber with a smaller bubbly lightly off white head. Aroma of maple, brown sugar, bready malt and biscuity. Flavor had a nice malt quality to it, touch of the maple, some fruity notes, brown sugar and nuts.
