Yum! If you love sweet maple syrup you'll love this beer. It had a smooth maple goodness that wasn't too rich. It's smell reminded me of when I used to sit under maple trees when I lived in Chicago. Even it's milk chocolate brown color made me want to have this beer with a warm short stack.

First off, if you don't like the taste of maple syrup, then this beer is just not for you. If you do in fact like maple syrup, then drink up my friends. This beer is a very smooth drink, and I found that i finished a six pack before i even got comfortable in my bar stool. Wonderful maple syrup aroma and just the right amount of syrup added to still taste like a beer. One of my personal favorites. A must drink for Maple Syrup fans everywhere. I also find that you may need to swirl the bottle for the best taste as the syrup tends to settle at the bottom. A delight from the Tommyknocker collection.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Serving Type Sampled: 12 fl. oz. brown crown to bottle. Bottle features brewed on date.

Appearance: Pours a nutty brown in color. Thin head, diminishing quickly into a nice lace. Very clear for a darker beer.

Smell: Roasted caramel malt, coffee, ting of maple syrup.

Taste: slightly sweet from the start, mild maple and soy sauce. Very malty. Lots of nutty notes. The presences of hops are subtle.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body. This is a very smooth beer; even the carbonation just lightly brushes the tongue.

Drinkability: Great. This is a perfect session beer. I could find my self enjoying a few of these in the pub.

Clear dark brown body, in certain angles it looks like a dark amber. Pours a nice off white head. Smells like a malt lover's dream. Very rich and sweet smelling. Not much for hop aroma though. Wow, taste is very very ballanced. The front is sweet and malty, toasted malt, with a hint of maple sugar. I think I can taste more maple in the after taste as well. Little to no hops are detectable, making this beer extremely smooth and balances (dangerously good). Mouthfeel is watery and refreshing; this could actually get the job done on a hot day. And drinkability is very good due to a lack of bitterness on the finish, all that sugary flavor up front, and refreshing mouthfeel.

pours a medium to dark brown with a nice two finger tan head that holds well and a good lacing to the finish. faint smells of maple and nuts and toasted malt. really liked the added maple syrup but thought it was a little weak, but a very nice combination with the nut and toasted malt flaver. mouthfeel very smooth with good carbonation. drinkability? can't wait to get more.

For some reason I was in the mood for pancakes with dinner, this had the flavor to appease my need.
It's a pretty medium brown beer with a small amount of tan head. Low carbonation. The aroma is slightly nutty with sweet malts. The taste is a bit nutty at first then the maple kicks in after a few seconds. The maple is not overpowering, it's very nice. The finish is very smooth. The body was about perfect for a brown. This is definitely a repeat buy.
