Out of 16 oz cans this year.

L-Black..minimal head

S-Roasted malts with a fruity (apples) like note that seems out of place.

T-Nice roasted maltiness....maple is evident but subtle....blends nicely....better as it warms.

F-More of a dry stout feel. At best on the light side of medium. Closer to high side of light bodied. If you drink it cold it feels too thin. As it warms it feels about right for a basic stout.

O-Personally I think they had a bigger maple impression a few years back but this is decent enough. I got an eight pack of sixteen ounce cans and I'll happily drink them all but won't go back for more. Nice enough winter beer from a Minnesota brewery whose beers I don't typically seek out.

I like it, maple not overpowering but a nice accent to the roasty stout

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours brilliant chestnut with very little cap. Has a big maple nose. The palate begins sweet and suggests root beer before emerging as maple and alcohol. A hint of smoke. Carbonation is medium and the body is slightly below medium. Much better than I expected.
