Not a good beer. Drank from
the bottle, so take this for what it's worth, but a flat, watery-syrupy taste that's hard to pin down. Not terrible, but not worth buying.

Thin mouthfeel, little maple flavor, no happiness, some sweetness, not much in the flavor department or aroma. Easy drinker.

Sampling a little while ago on 3/2/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass stein.

Pours a very deep mahogany in color with a thin beige head. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of malts and burnt brown sugar. Bit more going on with the taste as there is a hint of maple and cocoa also. Very smooth and goes down easy. No bitter or harsh aftertaste. Medium-bodied though a bit thin. Lower carbonation. Overall a tasty brown ale.

Very big toasted barley/malt in the nose and taste. A hint of maple and cocoa. It's allright
