On tap at the Gnome. A bit disappointing. The flavor is ok, maple, malt and caramel with some smokiness. The palate is too thin, and thereís not enough depth or complexity.

Basically black beer with a khaki head. Aroma of roast and maple. Taste is roast and molasses, really weak maple. Beer isnít thin, but its not what I was expecting. Very sweet, Sugar Shack indeed.

12oz bottle pours a dark reddish brown with an off-white head and little lacing. Aromas of maple, roasty, caramel, and dough. Flavor is a bit watered down considering the color and aroma. No aftertaste though for those that matters to. Ok beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a beige head. You can smell the maple, pleasant. Smooth mouthfeel with a little zip as you go to swallow. Slight bitterness to the finish which offsets the sweetness in a balanced way. OK for the style. Would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the March 2014 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large fluffy dark tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet maple, brown sugar, chocolate and had a malty undertone. The flavor was malty chocolate, brown sugar, maple, faint fruity hops and a touch of wood. Long malty chocolate and maple finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Interesting.

Thin dark brown pour with not too much head. Really nice malty pancake nose. Taste is a bit muddled - not bad, but dry, lots of roasted malt and a decent amount of hops serve to hide the maple syrup.

Draft at walrus. Big imitation maple aroma.. But itís kind of nice. Taste is very sweet, maple sugar, vanilla, heavy roast malt. Itís pretty decent for what it is, but itís sickly sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown with foamy brown head. Smells like Aunt Jemima drizzled over pancakes. Tastes of roasted malt with a slight sourness. Maple flavoring lends some sweetness...a little artificial but not terrible. Medium bodied. Enjoyable but not great.

Black color with a medium head. Strong, sweet maple aroma. Rich maple flavor. Tastes like it could veer towards cloyingly sweet, but is actually fairly dry. Light roasted barley. Nutty, almost woodsy. Full body.
