This beer pours a rather clear dark mahogany color with a fair amount of creamy light tan head that leaves some spotty lacing.
Right off the bat I can pick up on the deliciously sweet maple syrup aroma. It reminds me of french toast drenched in maple syrup, not boozy at all. Surprisingly smells more bready than nutty to me.
Flavor wise, it does not disappoint either. The maple syrup is there, but not overwhelming, just enough to give it some sweetness. The nuttiness comes in near the end. The aftertaste is quite pleasant given the high ABV, the nuttiness really lingers on your tongue. For a brown ale, its really lacking in the hop department though, not really a bad thing in my book though.
I really like the viscosity and carbonation level in this beer. Its got a substantial thickness to it but its not completely flat; just the right amount of carbonation.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
