From da' chubby bottle in a snifter. This decent bock pours a nice dark
murky brown color with a very nice head of light tan foam that settles to
a thick ring, thick layer, and shows some nice sudsy lacing. Nose of chocoalte
malts, light maple, light biscuit, and toasted malts with a touch of floral hops.
Flavors follow the nose with a mild maple and toasted malt note awash in mild
chocolate malt lightly touched by char and a subtle herbal hop on the rear
with a touch of roasted nuts. Decent mouth feel; medium body, medium light
carbonation, and a light maple and chocolate finish.

Cheers

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. Darker brown, amber body one finger white head, short retention and no lacing. Smell is mild maple sweetness, bread, a bit of biscuit and toasted malt. Light licorice, touch of chocolate. Flavour is similar; mild maple sweetness on top of a bready base, light chocolate and a bit of anise. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, smooth and moderately sweet but not cloying. Altogether a decently put together bock with a fair bit of sweetness. Kind of nice and different compared to say, a honey bock.

It was re-released in the fall of 2017 in 6 pack 12 Oz bottles. It's a Bock Ale? Ok. Beautiful Beer dark amber or light brown. Nice light brown head, leaves some lacing. Taste is light maple, a little caramel, a touch of roasted malts. It's only slightly sweet. Fairly smooth. Easy drinking beer. It's a ok beer, if your looking for a maple bomb this is not it.

Pours brilliant chestnut under a 3”light tan rocky head that dissipates to 1” while producing thick art nouveaux lacing. Some subtle maple and rich malt in the nose and flavor. Light chocolate and caramel notes show up on the palate. Bready notes are medium low. The maple is subtle and not prominent, accenting the malt rather than dominating it. The brewer uses a light hand on the hops to allow the maple to show through. Medium to full body and medium carbonation.

Pours a dark brown color with tan colored head. Maple, molasses, sweet dsrk fruits, raisins and dates on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with maple syrup like sweetness.

always love maple beers, buy every one i see, but i always wish for more maple, and this one certainly didnt take me to the promised land, although i liked the beer a lot. its a dopplebock type base beer, its german origins evident in both the malt and the yeast, which i think makes maple a real interesting choice, as these flavors are not often paired together, especially in a beer. nice and dark and rich looking, lathery off white head with fine retention and a thick dark mahogany color. nose is sweet, but bock comes before maple, i suspect the base beer is rather authentic and i like that. the maple is an accent flavor and aroma, but its there, and its real. i think it was probably used to spike the abv, and there is less residual maple than i would look for personally, but the beer is well balanced and the maple goes nicely with the german malts, which have some sweetness of their own to contribute. i like this a lot, its filling for sure, not something i need a whole lot of, but as always with maple beers, give me more maple!!!

chocolaty and toasty. Somewhat porterlike in feel and body. Nice yeast taste and more maple is noted in the nose than the taste, though present in both. The hops are not too powerful, but give a nice balance to the breadiness. This was good. Light/medium body.

Odd, complex beer. Glad they chose not to over do the maple. Like it more as I drank, would drink again. Gf gave it earthy tree notes which I agree
