2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a very nice rich brown color with a beige head full of tiny, tightly packed bubbles. There is slight lacing and fairly decent retention, not the best though. Aroma is sweet and fairly nutty. A slight bit of the maple syrup is evident but not too in your face. Not too bad. Ugh...this is where the good stops. There is nothing really noteworthy in the flavor besides the slight maple that becomes apparent at the end. Very bland in the front, slight sweet malt notes. The palate is a bit odd as well, but I can’t really put my finger on it. I will say that it is very drinkable though.
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 355ml bottle: Pours a clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, definite maple notes and a slight hint of nuttiness. Great flavors of maple and caramel. Low bitterness, medium low carbonation. Overall a really interesting beer that was really good. mabuzzer (910) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017

Pours a dark ruby with a quarter finger of beige head that quickly dissipates into a soapy foam. Brown sugar notes in the nose. A bit of a sweet taste, with a kind of watery mouthfeel. Syrupy in flavor with some sweet malt notes. Easy going down, but not overly complex Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Backlog entry: Flight at the brewery. A nice selection, several IPAs. Good all-around. True to style. djd07 (15547) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy copper with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong maple and roast. Medium body, strong maple syrup, cocoa, light finish, very good.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Draught @ tommyknocker. Poured brown color with a thin white head. Aroma has caramel, boozy notes, hops. Maple suryp comes through in the finish at least. Feels quite thin overall. muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
On tap in Helsinki (Tommyknocker). Medium brown color, small white head with some lacing. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nut flavor, some chocolate malts too. Okay, but nothing special. VastActiv (7600) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Tap at Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Colour is brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Chocolate, some nuts and malts. Very easy. lhns03 (103) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Pours a dirty mahogany with poor, uneven head that has little retention. Aroma is okay with some nice notes of burnt caramel, malty almost cola notes and a hint of maple nuttiness. Mouthfeel and flavor are pretty poor. Thin and watery with only the bit of sweetness from maple syrup saving the flavor. Not great. beerhotline (1) - - OCT 21, 2015 does not count
A malty aroma with burnt caramel notes, and a toasty nose. It pours a little hazy, and has the appearance of flat root beer. It starts out sweet, and finishes with a bitter, burnt note. Light body, with a thin texture, slightly fizzy finish.
