At our last homebrew club meeting I tried some maple syrup barley wine.
It was very good, but not an 'everyday' beer. The first impression was
of alchol, the maple flavor hit in the aftertaste. This was a very well
made brew; you need something strong like a barley wine to counter the
flavor of the maple syrup.

The overall effect was almost overpowering. The beer is suitable for
sipping after dinner, but I don't know if I could drink a whole bottle
by myself.
