Beer added by: kbub6f on 07-27-2001

A touch of Maple Syrup is added to each barrel of our award winning Maple Nut Brown Ale to impart a roasted sweetness. This addition balances the nut flavor produced by Munich, caramel and chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable brown ale.

Sampling a little while ago on 3/2/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass stein.

Pours a very deep mahogany in color with a thin beige head. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of malts and burnt brown sugar. Bit more going on with the taste as there is a hint of maple and cocoa also. Very smooth and goes down easy. No bitter or harsh aftertaste. Medium-bodied though a bit thin. Lower carbonation. Overall a tasty brown ale.

Very big toasted barley/malt in the nose and taste. A hint of maple and cocoa. It's allright

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, deep, dark mahogany color with practically no head what-so-ever. What little head there was, almost immediately dissolved away into an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department at all. I get some faint notes of malt and freshly baked bread, but not a lot, and nothing else. Certainly no maple syrup aromas.

Taste: However, the maple syrup is certainly present in the beer’s flavor!! I get strong notes of toasted malt, followed by some strong notes of maple syrup-like sweetness, finished with just the slightest touch of hops. Pretty damn good!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly thin. No carbonation what-so-ever, so it’s pretty damn smooth. With an ABV of only 4.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty damn good nut brown. Nice flavors of malt, mixed well with the maple syrup flavors. Toasty.
