2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(660ml bottle) Purchased at the brewpub on November 12, 2005 for $10. Pours a deep red body with a thin, almonde head. Nice carbonation. Very smokey nose and flavour with only a hint of maple. The sweetness was the weakness - as I was glad to have 3 others to share this with! Okay but I would have rather spent my $10 elsewhere...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A smokey, medicinal malt nose, yellow,small white head. Taste of burnt paper, medium bodied, harsh. Sub par for these folks.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
660mL: Pale gold, thin white head. Immediately poor and oxidized problematic nose offers penny and cidery beginnings with olive-like acidity and mellow battery acid defaults. Quite empty in mouth, it strikes as being very metallic with dull flavours punctuating a mostly thin body. Feels like an old find from the cellar unfortunately.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had this at Chival Blac while I was in town for the Mondial. It had somewhat of a smoky flavor and aroma with hints of lemons or fresh ginger. The overbearing flavor, however, was this beer tasted like gauze pads smell. It had a band-aid flavored finish. There was no maple flavor at all. I would avoid this beer in the future.
