Strong maple/malty smell, nothing special as far as looks or mouthfeel. The flavor started out nice, but the more I drank it and as it heated up a touch, the sweetness became too cloying to drink and borderline unpleasant. Would only recommend drinking promptly straight out of the fridge, I guess.

As the name implies, strong whiffs of maple and pecan greet you upon opening the bottle. Slightly sweet, the warm rich tones amplify an overall pleasant appearance. Quality taste reflected in strong caramel tones was only offset a little by - at times - too much sweetness.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Dark brown in color, with a decent head of light tan foam.
Aroma-Faint roastiness,toasted malt.
Taste-Toasted malt, short little stab of sweet maple marked with a nutty roastiness. Nice balance and flavor. A nice match for a slice of pecan or pumpkin pie,
