Tasting Notes: Sweet, bitter, slightly oaky-maple character.   

Further notes:
I had several people try this one out, and all loved it. The most common response I had was how smooth it was. My personal experience, was that as described above - you could also taste a touch of the maple syrup, and the oak was prevalent as well. The bitterness was about half as that of Guinness. It reminded me almost of whiskey (if whiskey were a beer).

The recipe:

Base Grain:
4 lb. British 2-row

Specialty Grain:
2 oz. Roasted barley - xxx deg. L
1 lb. Crystal Malt (dark)

3 lb. Light Extract
2 lb. Molasses
1 cup+. Maple Syrup (primer)
2 cup. Oats
1 cup. Rye flakes
Irish Moss (clarifier)
9 gr. Oak chips

1 Cascade (30 min)
.5 lb stalk. Angelica( 60 min)

6 L Sparge OG: 1.065
12 L Boil FG: 1.016
30 L Batch*

*was initially for a 23L batch, but I mis-calculated, so the OG will be far off. The alcohol percentage turned out to be around 5-5.5%.
