On tap at Crowbar. Hazy red copper. Sweet fruity caramel throughout, not very balanced. Disappointing.

Draft. The initial aroma for me was chocolate but my second pass that was gone. I started to get more of a well toasted malts aroma with an artificial sweet maple taste (think cheap syrup). I also noticed that it had some weird earth quality that I could put my finger on which I later foundout was the mushroom they added. I wasnít super impressed by this beer but, then again, I didnít know what I was drinking had some unique ingredients.

Pours dark amber with a thin, tan head. Nose is syrupy maple with light vanilla notes. Flavor is sweet, like something you want on your pancakes. Medium body, mild carbonation. Tasty brew.

Fruity and slightly sour aroma. Amber coloured with a little sweet honey flavour. A hint of bitterness and dryness in a mushroom flavoured finish.

Easily one of the strangest brews iíve ever had, thanks Kyle .. . Pours a dark gold .. . mushrooms, in a beer? ..it works in such a weird way, not overpowering or messy but small samples seem best .. .
itís not dark, youíre misunderstanding me, bro. ..- Yeah, you are. Because if the girl said ínoí, then the answer is obviously ínoí. But the thing is she is not gonna say no. She would never say ínoí, ..because of the ..implication...

Tap at West Coast Brew Fest 2010. This is wild. Pours reddish with a huge foamy beige head. Aromas of celery? and maple syrup. Medium body; mild carbonation. Flavor is maple malt. Veg aspects. Way different. The veg stayed with my mug. Hard to leave it behind. Different but good beer.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a nice cream colored head. Sweet brown sugar, maple, and mollases aroma. Earthy flavor with malt and a light sweetness. Medium bodied. Earthy and maltiness lingers with light maple flavored cotton candy.

Very interesting brew. These guys continuously come up with eyebrow raising recipes, and most of them work. This one pours dark amber with a small but lasting beige head. The aroma is light maple syrup with a distinct earthiness. The flavor is a tad sweet and syrupy with mushrooms and earth. It slowly becomes more vegetal and herbal with a hint of weed. Not great, but not bad.

On tap at 515 in Santa Cruz. Sample-size glass as part of a flight. Deep clear amber color without much head other than a smattering of tan bubbles. Aroma is so similar to maple syrup that itís kind of awe-striking that such a note could come from a mushroom. Very perfumey and sweet, reminiscent of pancakes smothered in syrup. Flavor is also very sweet, and would make this hard to drink a whole pint of (or a 16 oz can). Maple syrup/brown sugar at the fore, with a hint of berries and sweet malts. Has enough body to justify the sweetness, and enough carbonation to temper it. Another nice Uncommon beer.
