Picked this one up from my store today after sampling the Sap Sucker from Fernie yesterday. They seem very similar, despite that one being a porter and this is, of course, a stout. I'll be referencing Sap Sucker a lot, since it's fresh in my mind, and is similar to this in many ways.
The beers both look nice, and this one has a good three fingers of brown head, although I noticed this faded away rather quickly. Sap Sucker looked like an ice cream float, and certainly wins the appearance battle.
One thing that this beer deserves a lot of credit for over it's maple BC brother is that it actually has a good bit of maple in the aroma and in the taste. The usual coffee aroma and taste of these sorts of dark beers is present of course, but this one really makes me feel like I'm having a cup of coffee with some pancakes. The aroma is akin to taking a good huff from a maple syrup bottle, and it's certainly something I'm glad is there. The taste is not overly sweet, although it is noticeably less bitter than Sap Sucker. The feel is very tingly, despite not having a whole lot of carbonation.
Very good beer, nearly equal with Sap Sucker, I'd say.

Every time I bring the glass up to take a sip I'm hit with so much Maple almost Voodoo like
T-sweet maple start , somewhat bittersweet smokey finish

Received a bottle of this from kjyost in a recent trade. Cheers!
From a bomber into a snifter
APPEARANCE: Pours out dark brown and yields a small, light tan head with decent retention. Head fades to a faint wisp and ring. Black body and no carbonation evident. A ring remains, leaving some light dots of lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Lots of maple syrup for sure. Very up front and forthcoming here. Vanilla, milk chocolate and a touch of roasted malts, but this is more about the maple syrup here. Pretty decent really.
TASTE: Falls well short of the nose. Well short. Much milder and the maple tastes artificial for some reason. Caramel and some milk chocolate accompany the maple syrup up front, moving into a mild and dry finish with some maple, vanilla notes and light roasted flavors. Very disappointing after having smelt this thing. Relatively mild and artificial tasting.
PALATE: Medium body and slightly higher levels of carbonation. Not all that creamy on the palate, a touch watery, goes down alright and finishes slightly cloying. Not too bad, but a little too sticky here.
OVERALL: This is alright I guess. I understand what they were going for, and the nose on this one certainly worked, but the taste and palate didn't deliver. Artificial tasting, too mild and somewhat watery, this one ended up being a disappointment. Keep the nose and try to re-work the rest, as there is some real potential here. Thanks again kjyost!

Cannery Brewing Company Maple Stout was brought to us by my wife's folks on their visit from British Columbia. The beer pours a deep, dark brown with some ruby highlights, and is capped by a thin tan head that leaves little in the way of retention and lacing. A strong syrupy nose is reminiscent of pancakes and sugar, very little else noticeable. Maple flavors dominate the pallet, at times sweet and mellow, and quite light for a stout. Medium-light in body, Maple Stout is also lower in carbonation. Who doesn't like pancakes and syrup?

A: 1/8" tan coloured head that collected around the edges of the glass over cola coloured liquid.
S: Maple syrup and toffee malt dominate the smell profile.
T: Maple syrup, toffee malt, and toasted malt dominate the taste profile. Quite sweet.
M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.
O: Quite drinkable, but on the sweeter side. I honestly think that others have rated it lower than what it deserves simply because the brewery is not well known. After tasting CBS a few days ago, I would say this is a decent maple stout.

650ml bottle poured into tulip 6/1/12
A very dark cola with a two finger dark tan head that retains pretty well leaving a few patches of lace
S smokey maple with some chocolate covered raisin and toffee, the nose is very maple but I can't decide if its natural or fake maple smell, either way
it smell great
T some faint dark dried fruit to go along with what I smell, the maples a little toned down and there's a faint nutty aspect
M thinner then expected but it has enough bubbles to liven things up, leaves a burnt maple flavor for an aftertaste
O I'm sold on this one, smells great and pretty solid in other areas. there's room for improvement but a good beer nonetheless
I'd drink it again so that says something, I like finding unexpected gems from obscure breweries and this one fits the bill
