[Suggesteed Glassware: Dimpled Mug]
The pour was a clear dark amber brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that steadily diminished down to a thin film and large collar, which produced good sticky lacing.
The aroma was kind of faint of a toasted chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel and maple syrup.
The taste was lightly sweet and a little malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a hint of chocolate early on, finishing mildly roasty with a slightly pronounced maple syrup presence towards the end. The flavor was short lived with the sweet roastiness fading quickly from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall I found this brew to be a bit light for a Brown Ale, although it did posses a good roasty taste and smooth drinkability, which makes it a perfect candidate for a session beer…

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.

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.
