12 oz bottle dated April 2011 served in a pint glass.
Pours a murky mahogany (aka Grade B maple syrup) with a small and irregular tan head. Leaves decent lacing on the glass. A very small amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle (added).
Aroma is hard to de-construct, but features roasted grains, some spiciness (hops?) and something sweet and attractive (but not clearly identifiable as maple). ... Aroma (and taste) improve with some warming, and the maple syrup then appears in the nose as well as the flavor.
Taste - A good roasted (mostly chocolate) malt flavor; a bit of the maple actually comes through in the flavor: very nice if rather faint. Has a fine finish and aftertaste. Perhaps a bit too sweet, but I'm more than willing to have that to get the maple flavor component; still, the sweetness keeps my rating here from going higher.
M - near medium body: a tad too thin; carbonation is light-medium; near creamy, yet with a slightly dry finish.
O - I've had this before but this bottle seems MUCH better than I remember. This is certainly an above average beer from Tommyknocker. Easy recommendation for people like me who love both beer and maple syrup.

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.
