Treated as an imperial brown ale, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a dark brown color and having a nice finger and a half's worth of eggshell white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Lace was concave sort of ordeal in a filmy sort of way.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of cocoa powder, maple syrup, little tidbits of dark chocolate, light roasted coffee beans, subtle sweet grains and just a light note of dried earthy notes.
The flavor leaned towards the roast initially and then developed more of a balance between sweet maple and cocoa powder to the roasty coffee notes. Subtle sticky milk chocolate in the aftertaste with an even lighter maple syrup content.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt just a bit under as I was hoping for a bit more, but I wasn't bothered too much by that, not cloying, though. ABV felt as projected by the brewer. Finish was nice and maple-like with coffee notes and that earlier earthiness coming across fairly nice.
Overall, a very well controlled imperial brown ale that I would welcome much more in my life. Super glad that I gave this a chance since I don't always look to Henniker as being one of the top notch brewers in the state of New Hampshire. Hope my numbers reflect on how good this was.

Dark brown in nonic pint glass with a finger of tan head. Decent lacing.

Roasted malt aroma with some musty yeast and sweet chocolate behind.

Wow, really tastes like pancakes with maple syrup for a second, before roasted malts, bitter chocolate and hops linger in the aftertaste. Hint of alcohol as well.

Medium bodied with just enough carbonation.

Fun beer to try. And way better than anything pumpkin.

Assumed fresh can poured into tulip.
Pour is dark walnut brown, no highlights
Light tan head. Lasting and lacing foam.
Smell is medium malts, nuts, roast, touch of maple sweetness.
Taste is mild, unsweetened chocolate, English malts, coffee and a touch cardboardy. Can I describe that it tastes like leaves, cool weather, brown?

Great fall weather, rainy day drinking beer.

Stopped into The Nashua Garden on 11OCT17 and enjoyed a couple of pints of this, $2.75 each during happy hour.

Poured a deep, dark, opaque chestnut hue. Had a 1/2", fine, beige head which slowly receded to a rim-job, with nice lace. Nose gave off malty traits, with caramel and maple present. It was pretty smooth, and the body was a good medium.

Had a nice, light sweetness to it, with a touch of caramel. The maple was easily detected on top of the solid malt base. Some mild floral hopping came through at the finish. Quite tasty! Prosit!

Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can!

A - Dark hazel colored pour, dense toffee colored lacing, viscous on the sides of the glass.

S - Delicate smoke, dark malt/chocolate, and maple.

T - Toasted chocolate malt, maple, and some earthiness. Nice lingering chocolate bitterness on the backside.

M - Big medium silky body

O - Not at all a fan of brown ales but this beer is fantastic. Period.

Vigorous pour from the can yields a one inch plus, light tan head over a mahogany brown body with some sticky (syrup?) lacing. Nose of malt and maple syrup. Taste mirrors nose with a definite 7% alcohol presence. Nice feel and overall a fairly enjoyable experience. Cheers!

A robust brew with a strong roasted malt presence. The maple syrup is ever so subtle and not as present to the taste buds as I had hoped.

Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass not sure when it was canned, but in the last 2 weeks I am guessing. Pours a beautiful mahogany with a massive 2 plus sticky white head that leaves a thin wall of tan head.

Smell is biscuit, honey, gram cracker, caramel, and maple syrup.

Taste follows biscuit, caramel, honey, gram, and maple syrup.

Mouthfeel is a pretty large medium, moderate life, not really dry, and drinks bigger than 7% ABV, but still very approachable.

Overall this is some very tasty stuff, a nice twist on a brown ale, will drink this a good amount the next couple months.
