fenugreek is a possibility too. It is used in a lot of "cheap" maple syrups, and I have heard of it being used in maple syrup beers to up the maple flavor.
In a Keg: Flanders Red Ale, Rye Altbier, Cascade/Topaz Pale
Fermenting: Flanders Red, Saison

i tried a bottle last week.  i poured maybe a half glass and had a hard time getting through that much.  i dumped the rest.  can't remember the last time i didn't want to finish drinking a beer.  i love a lot of rogue's other beers.  this one just isn't good. 
cheers.

Definitely not in the Rogue beer.  I'll see John next Mon. and try to remember to ask him.

Denny, John said the maple is extract when we were talking to him about it the day we were there.

Thanks, Tom.  Obviously I didn't remember that, but a lot of the flavorings Rogue uses come from extract, so I assumed it was a safe guess.
