3.5/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear and dark copper brown with one fingered head that is tan and dissipates quickly but leaves lacing on the top of the beer.

Smell: I can smell the syrup supplemented by the dark chocolate and malts.

Taste: The bottle does not lie. The beer tastes like a liquefied piece of French toast. The syrup dominates the palate with sweet malts and some chocolate. I find the syrup to be too sugary to rate this any higher but the syrup still meshes very well with the other flavors.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation with a medium body that is creamy.

Overall: I think that is definitely a unique and probably suited best for the winter or for someone who likes really sweet beers. I think this beer accompanied with a Breakfast stout would make a swell meal.

Stunning appearance. Pours a clear reddish brown with a big and tight tan head. Great retention as it slowly recedes to a one finger cap and leaves sheets of lace behind. Looks similar to fresh poured iced tea.

Mellow and muted aroma with hints of toasted & roasted malt, some nuttiness, and amber malt extract.

Flavor is very mellow with some toasted malt, nuttiness, and chicory. A little toasted grain hits the back of the tongue. Hops are barely present, adding just enough bitterness to balance. Finishes clean and dry. Overall the flavor is very mild.

Light in body, low carbonation, and incredibly smooth. Goes down very easily. A real session beer that has just enough to keep you interested. Not a bad choice for gameday.

Not a bad brown ale. In this area, we get Legend Brown Ale both in bottles and on tap which is better.

Pours a clear mahogany / reddish brown color with a lot of light getting through. Small head, average retention and some lacing. Both the aroma and taste pick up as the beer warms. The maple is more noticeable as sweetness rather than as singularly maple. There is a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness (hops? spices?). mouthfeel is average in richness, the bitterness is good at keeping this from being a Newcastle...too sweet ale.

Low abv, pleasant taste and smell. Not a bad brown ale.

Chestnut brown color, slightly hazy, with a decent tan head. The head fades somewhat slow and leaves a nice ring on the glass.

A decent nutty aroma, some roasted malt sweetness and nothing at all from the hops. I do not get any maple notes in the aroma. It does smell like a decent brown ale though. Taste is somewhat roasty, some caramel malt and a touch of hop spice and bitterness in the finish. Again nothing from the maple syrup though it may be contributing to the overall sweetness of this beer.

Medium body, well carbonated, this has a real smooth mouthfeel. Definitely drinkable at 4.5%. There's nothing spectacular about this beer but it's pleasing in all aspects.
