My wife bought this from Green's thinking it was the Maple Nut Brown Ale, since it specifically mentions maple syrup on the label. We've recently made a clonebrew of the Maple Nut and were anxious to compare it to the original since we've never tried it.
This Imperial smelled robust with a definite chocolaty nose. Poured very dark brown more like a robust porter or stout rather than a brown ale with not much of a head unless poured from a height. The head lasted several minutes and produced some good lacing on the glass. First taste revealed a heavier alcohol content, but not overpowering. Not much carbonation and tasted malty, somewhat chocolaty with a rather flat finish. As the beer warmed, the beer seemed to become even milder and smoother. Although I wouldnt go out of my way to purchase more, I would definitely not turn another one down if offered.

Ruby brown in color with good light tan head, good lacing, and a thick collar. Aroma is dark molasses, nutty and earthy. Taste follows pretty much identically. Mild hop bitterness in this one. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Definitely my favorite of the three beers I had at the brewery.
