look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Best by: Apr 23 2012.
A: Dark brown/red with crimson and dark orange around the bottom. Finger of off-white head, dissipates rather quickly, very little lacing. Looks clean and nicely filtered.
S: This is a fairly aromatic brew, and the malts come through the most, smells lightly roasted, earthy grains and notes of hops come through.
T: The taste is a little different from the nose, the malts taste very sweet, almost a little too sweet on the front with a strange bitterness at the same time, but that quickly fades into a cereal grain flavor on the mid palate, with an almost sweet-bitter-nutty finish. Tastes pretty decent, but it doesn't seem that well balanced and it kind of seems to not know what it's trying to do. It almost reminds me of sweet tea.
M: Feels kind of sweet-sticky, moderate carbonation, medium body but yet almost watery at the same time.
O: Eh. It's an ok beer. I've certainly had better beers in this style. It's almost good, but it's overly sweet and the palate is all over the place with bitter-sweet malts. I'd drink it again, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone except maybe those who are just starting to explore craft beers. If you get a chance to try one for free, go for it, but don't pay a premium for it if you see it somewhere.

Good nut brown color with thin light tan collar, decent lacing. Aroma is maple sweetness, and a nutty-caramel aroma as well. Taste is also nutty, caramel with the maple taking a big presence. Thin body for a brown and low carbonation. Needs a better malt backbone and maybe some more hops both up front and at the end.
Serving type: on-tap

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice amber color. and poured a nice tan head. I was afraid of this one after tasting their imperial nut Brown which I did not like. This I must say is much better in my opinion and actually you can taste the beer and not the high ABV of the imperial. The beer had a nice maple taste and was really good. I will buy this one again.
