This is a bold brown ale, one with a very strong nut flavor. The maple isn't as strong as I expected, but it does add just enough sweetness. The roasted malt tastes great, and there seems to be a bit of a coffee note in there as well. The mouthfeel is pretty much spot on, as the beer, for as rich and heavy as it is, goes down smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a very good brown ale, but the nut flavor is a bit more pronounced than in many others within the style. This isn't terribly expensive and it's worth trying for sure.

A: Pours a darker brown with ample head. Good rim of head remains on the glass during consumption. Large chunks of lacing.
S: Molasses, malty aroma.
T: Good malty sweetness from front to back. Really nice molasses flavors on the far back. Hint of earthy nut somewhere between.
M: Nice carbonation. Good body yet light enought to have a couple.
O: Good brew.

What a great brown ale. It has characteristics of a porter/stout, but maintains a lighter body and adds some fun flavors.
a- a good solid almond brown. Nice thick light beige head that dissipates but keeps a nice thin layer as you drink.
sm - Definitely a chestnut/almond smell mixed with a little toasted bread.
taste - nice smooth brown ale, not many overwhelming notes here. Just a nutty, woody drinking ale. The 6% abv is completely hidden in this.
Overall- Weak review on my part for this beer which seems to be more complex than I can wrap my palate around. Like I said initially, it has characteristics of a porter or stout, but with a tiny bit more nutty and hoppy flavor.

An as-advertised mahogany brown in color, it sits in pretty much the exact median between light and dark on the scale. On top grows a decently sized light head that stops t almost precisely one finger. The head is retained well, some semblance lasting all the way, and lacing is left in patches with some legging, and in good quantity.
A nutty aspect doesn't seem the focus in the nose, though the malts are strong enough to set a foundation on. Mostly perceivable is toast. Generally, it's a bit too light to get a whole lot out of.
Nut comes out strongly in the flavor, coming alongside the toastiness rather than being overcome. Into the middle, a note of smoke comes through, even adding a hint of something just a bit meaty on the end. It's kept in check, allowing the toast and nut to command, and it works in this beer.
A brown ale needs to not be too light or crisp, but to avoid being heavy either. As a style, it needs to meet in the middle, and this beer does. Not too crisp but enough to keep it from being flat, not too smooth but enough to keep it moving, this beer's easy to drink.
