I'm not usually a huge fan of English Brown ale, but this was a pleasant surprise. In the glass it's a clear hazelnut brown with a minor head. Smells of maple (yum!) sweet malts and alcohol.

Tastes just like you'd infer from the smell. It's a sweet, malty brew with more than a hint of maple. I also detected mild coffee and cocoa notes. Didn't really taste any nuts, however.

Mouthfeel was very smooth but a bit watery. The 9.8% warms the throat and back of the tongue. Quite pleasing. A fine after-dinner beer for a cold day. I'd pick this one up again.

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.
