Pours a mostly opaque, murky brown color, slightly reminiscent of a quad with less red tones in it; some light shines through the edges, but not much. Beige colored head settles down quick and leaves just a little bit of lacing on the way down. Aroma is full of some damp chocolate notes, toasted malts, faint nuts, and rubbing alcohol. The alcoholic aroma is actually quite strong - I don't smell much maple syrup as advertised. The taste, however, delivers with a bit of that maple goodness I was looking for; very nutty, woodsy, and maple flavored. Some toasted malts to back it up; light earthiness and not much of a hop profile to speak of. However, that rubbing alcohol flavor was abundant and almost a little too distracting, which was unfortunate. It was almost a little like nail polish remover - just kind of strong and in the way, but not enough to ruin the beer for me. Medium body, medium-high carbonation.
Pretty tasty beer - unfortunately, I think the alcoholic body masks some of the flavors a bit, and if that were toned down a little, this beer would be pretty damn good.

Served in a perfect pint glass
A - It is a ruddy brown color with amber highlights. It is topped with an inch of mocha head.
S - I smell some sweet chocolate and the maple syrup. It does have a nutty smell to it, as well.
T - This beer starts out sweet with a touch of alcohol. Then it finishes with earthy, nutty brown ale flavors. The finish has enough bitterness to cancel out the sweetness up front.
M - Medium to full.
O - This is one flavorful brown ale. It gives me a nice warming sensation on a chilly fall day. It is perfect for today's weather.
