Pours a dark mahogany color with a thin khaki head. Smell had toasted malts ,biscuit and maple. Taste was good nice maple flavor that mixed well with the stout base,roasted malts in the finish. Mouth feel was this with good carbonation,twas a little watery.

Decent Stout, especially for the price. Nice roasty aroma with a hint of maple. The maple syrup flavor hits much bigger in the flavor, with enough of a roasted malt finish to keep it from becoming cloying. Really, really thin feel. Surprisingly thin.

4 pack at Aldi 6.99 super easy drinking stout a bit heavy on the back end with maple but a very solid and enjoyable Stout. A fantastic beer for the price

From the can bought at Aldi, it pours a clear (I think) dark brown with a light brown, bubbly head. The head lasts as it slowly diminishes . Scent is a syrupy scent, pleasant. Taste is malty and sweet, with maple undertones and aftertaste. Enjoyable!

Purchased this in a variety pack, as I love trying new. Regarding this beer I'm not knocking it, but just not my pint of beer. Has a good look, smell, and feel, but I just did not care for the maple flavor after taste. If you are looking for a maple flavor beer, this is the one for you.

I'm trying this at my bro in law house. It pour3d a nearly opaque dark with thin ercu head that is not leaving much lace. The scent carries sweet plum and musty wine barrel. The taste starts with a dark fruit push then maple presence after draw. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

16oz canned 9/8/17 poured into a perfect pint at fridge temp 6.5% ABV. The beer pours pitch black with mocha brown head. Retention and lacing are slightly above average. The aroma is maple syrup and black malt. The taste is bitter dark malt and semisweet maple that finishes with a bitter woody note. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and semisweet in the finish. This beer never goes cloying for me but there is definitely maple syrup taste and feel. Overall, pretty good. This is the best sample I've had from 3rd Street. Worth a shot at $7 for 4 16oz cans.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a pretty deep black with a nice heavy head of tan suds. A little lace.

Aroma: Sweet sweet maple! Most maple character I’ve ever had in a beer. Seems authentic, too. Points here.

Taste: Plenty of maple syrup here, sweet but with a roasty stout cocoa/coffee malt presence. Seems a bit light in body, but for fans of maple syrup like me, this is one to try. Solid and unique.

Another special at Aldi.

If you like it sweet, then this is your treat. Heavier. Good Fall drink. The maple isn’t very subtle.

Wife likes it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep, opaque black body, with a large, dense dark tan head. Scattered, broken lacing adorns the glass walls. The head retention is excellent.

Aroma: Quite distinct notes of fermented maple syrup utterly dominates the aroma, the maple aroma is utterly authentic.

Taste: A wave of fermented maple syrup opens the taste, soon followed by toasted malt. As the taste progresses, the maple intensifies a bit, vying with the roasted malt for supremacy. Interestingly, the relatively high ABV of 6.5% is notable neither in the aroma, nor the taste. Finishes with a long and lingering note o maple syrup and toasted malt.

Mouth feel: Soft and velvety, extremely full, quite gracious.

Drinkability/notes: A superb example, would pair well with chocolate desserts, and it seems perfect for cool Autumn days, so rare in Texas.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard sixteen-ounce aluminum can, served in a Pilsener glass.

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
