This is a very good beer. I don't typically drink stouts, but I really like this one. I absolutely don't like Guinness, but I do like Young's Oatmeal Stout and Rubicon Stout. I think the maple stout is better than any of these. It is very smooth going down, and has sweet but mellow maple flavored aftertaste. Thanks to Jim Kipps for posting this recipe.
Add six ounces of the maple syrup during the boil and the other 6 in the last couple minutes of the boil (much like a finishing hops). Total boil time was 1 hour.
