2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the silver derby. Pretty straight forward aroma. Dark copper. Fairly smooth!!
Draft. Aroma: Very sweet, maple really come through. App: Very dark brown, thin white head. Taste: Burnt toast and maple. Palate: Ok feel, not a long finish. Over: Ok not great Msdrbeat (785) - East Lansing, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is mostly malt sweetness. Hop bitterness overpowers the front end before fading to smooth bitterness with some sweet. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2016
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber color, ivory head cover, sprays of lace. Taste is malt and maple honey that coasts through a lightly carbonated swallow to medium hop bitterness that isn’t in tune with the malt. The ensuing fight never gets settled. I suppose true in advertising works - this is a train wreck. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Poured from can. Amber color. Sweet aroma. Some honey sweet in the flavor, but mostly bread. I remember trying this before an kind of liking it, but this one was just ok. Drinkable, but not something to seek out. FlandersNed (396) - , Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2015
16oz can. Dusty light brown tone, moderate foam. Malty maple nose and flavor. One of their better beers. Medium+ body & medium carbonation.

Draught. Pours hazy dark amber with small off-white foamy head, spicy/hoppy aroma, medium carbonation, spicy caramel taste with piney hops flavor, long bitter finish. Very stimulating. Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 16, 2015
Can. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma and taste are as the name implies - a train wreck. Listen to the advice on the can - "Approach with caution" superspak (5996) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/1/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, honey/maple, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Good amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, toast, brown bread, maple, light pine, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malts, honey/maple, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial amber ale style. All around good complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt, honey/maple, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. The flavors were not as bold as I would have expected given the ABV; but it was still really quite enjoyable. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2015
Slight notes of bready malt and a touch of honey to start. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with a nice cap of white head. Slightly sweet flavor, with a touch of drying bitterness. Slick mouthfeel and heavy body makes this a sipper. The alcohol is well hidden, but there’s not much going on here. I was hoping for at least a little more notes from the maple and honey.

Pours dark amber color. Smell is malt and honey.. Taste is malt, honey and a little maple syrup and bitterness on the finish. Medium body and medium carb.
