Poured from a bottle in to my Bruery snifter. Pours a deep red/brown with 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Smells of sweet malt, roasted maple and some light hops.

Taste matches the smell - toasted grain malt, brown sugar, and the typical almost-tart maple syrup flavor. Sweet blending into tart and toasted.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, with mild bubbles.

Overall this is a great nut brown ale. Easily drinkable, and some good maple flavors. The only glaring flaw is the tart bitterness that comes at the end of the taste, either from the hops or from the fermented syrup itself (which I've seen with other beers including my homebrew.)

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best by 4/2/2012. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a good 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt, biscuit, light chocolate, roasted nut, and maple syrup. Some decent aromas that are on the weak side. Taste of toasted malt, caramel, maple, roasted nut, and a touch of herbal hops. A surprising lack of flavor here, but it isn’t offensive. Really dry finish; but some lingering notes of caramel and maple for a few seconds. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable as expected, with no alcohol noticed at all as expected for 4.5%. Some good flavor balance for what is present. Overall this is an ok beer. Not offensive by any means, but it really is lacking in the flavor department. I wanted it to be much more robust than what was offered.

Pours a reddish brown with a one finger creamy head that sticks around and leaves ok lacing.

The aroma is nutty with notes of cocoa and maple. Buttery edges with some grassy notes in the background.

The flavor follows with a nutty domination, maple, and hints of cocoa. Buttery and sweet.

A little thin.

Overall, an enjoyable and easy drinking beer.

Poured into a pint glass.

It's brown with a hint of ruby. offf white head that leave a fing of foam. Good lacing.

Malt, maple syrup, nutty. No hops really.

This beer is definitely nutty. Almost buttery. The maple comes out in the finish.

Light bodied, lots of carbonation. Dry on the finish.

This beer's ok. Quaffable and sessionable.
