Bottle into a pint glass.
A : A vigorous pour results in a good finger and a half foamy tan head. Color is quite nice caramel brown that shines in the light.
S : Maple syrup is potent, but some notes of nuttyness dart in as well.
T : You could pour this on pancakes, as the syrupy sweetness dominates atop a malty layer. There is just a light note of nut and coffee on the finish. This one is sweet, very sweet.
M : Medium bodied with a frothy filling feel (say that 5 times fast), leaves a light sweet coat.
D : If you like sweet & malty, this is a very solid brew. Would serve well as a dessert brew. Far sweeter than most American Ale's.
I reviewed the bigger, imperial, brother of this ale some time back and found it lackluster. It seems the bigger brew loses some of maple sweetness in favor of alcohol.

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.
