Draft at walrus. Big imitation maple aroma.. But it’s kind of nice. Taste is very sweet, maple sugar, vanilla, heavy roast malt. It’s pretty decent for what it is, but it’s sickly sweet. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2013
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.

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 there’s not enough depth or complexity. badgerben (5214) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2013
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. UkrainPubCrawler (121) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Nice dark color with silky foamy head. The maple flavor is delicious and well-balanced with malt. I’m very happy that I gave this beer a try.

Bottled. Poured near black with a tall, creamy, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up lots of artificially-sweet maple and vanilla over toasty black malts that were quite well buried.. smelled like diabeetus in a glass. The flavor found surprisingly sharp woody/medicinal notes on the tip of the tongue, with the expected sweet maple following.. some coffee and plenty more maple on the tacky, not-that-pleasant finish. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.. this got caught up in a few places on the palate, and didn’t flow well.. meh. Miaku (2) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2013 does not count
The names of Third Streets beers always sound very intriguing. The idea of the maple syrup, in the beer, was what made me want to taste it. It is pretty decent, coming from a brewery that has an okay reputation. It is definitely one of my favorites from Third Street. That being said, the main downfall of this beer is the fact that it is a bit on the sweet and thick side. Sometimes it is a little overwhelming. Roonai (305) - - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle Shared by deyholla, thanks Derek! Pours near black with mahogany hue and thin brown head that didn’t last. Nose is loads of roasted and sweet malts with only a touch of maple. taste is similar. A bit thin and roasty but not as much maple as i was expecting. Smooth mouthfeel. deyholla (11749) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear very dark brown with a chocolate brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark grain and a bit of a burnt sugar notes with a touch of underlying maple. Flavor has same dark grains with a light burnt note and dark toffee with a touch of maple through the finish. Skyview (6076) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2013
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored stout with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates to a film top and thin beige ring. Aroma of chocolate and maple syrup, a hint of molasses, and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of chocolate malt, brown sugar, maple and caramel malt. Finish is semi-sweet, some extra chocolate and brown sugar malt aftertaste with a short spice hop profile.
