Best before December 15, 2014, bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear chestnut brown with a ruby hue, small fizzy off-white head reduces to just a ring around the edge 3.75

S- classic toasted malty brown ale aroma with some nutty notes up front, sweet maple syrup brings out some chocolate & molasses aroma, herbal hop closes it out 3.75

T- toasty malt up front with notes of toasted almonds, smoky campfire, bittersweet chocolate,caramel and freshly baked bread, fig & prune, the maple syrup kicks in as it nears the finish and provides a biting sweetness, finishing with some herbal/medicinal notes 4

M- medium viscous body with low carbonation leads to a slightly syrupy mouthfeel and a smooth and warming finish, alcohol is hidden very well 4

O- this surely doesn't drink like a 9% beer, the maple works well with the nuttiness of the malt. Easy drinking beer that will definitely catch up with you, overall good 4
