12 oz bottle (best by Dec 3, 2012) poured into a Shaker Pint glass.
Appearance: Clear dark copper on the table, ruby red when held up to the light. Light tan thin head upon pouring died back to just a ring and the occasional island of lacing.
Smell: Almost no smell at all. Barest hint of something sweet with a really deep inhale.
Taste: What this beer lacks in aroma it makes up for in taste. Admittedly I have a sweet tooth, but I found the mix of toffee, maple syrup, caramel malt, and tiny chocolate notes very nice. The beer finishes with a mild bitter finish - bitterness from a mix of roasted malt and light hop bitterness. A sweet beer, but not cloying. Very tasty.
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, juice like thickness. Works well here.
Overall / Drinkability: A very tasty beer and very sessionable to boot. I could easily have another by itself but I find with food the beer really works. I've had it with Burgers and it was fantastic, and with pulled pork BBQ it works well again. Not a perfect combination with the BBQ, but still good. Definitely glad I got the 6 pack of this when I saw it. A bit disappointing in the aroma dept, but still quite good overall.

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.
