The beer is a medium brown color with a small tan head.
The aroma is sweet malt and brown sugar.
Toffee and caramel taste. Some maple syrup. I was expecting more from the maple syrup.
A very sweet beer. Definitely a lingering sweetness.
Not a bad beer, but a little too sweet for my taste

Poured much darker than I expected for a lighter beer. A faint touch of maple flavor. It drank much heavier than any other 4.4 beer. Pleasantly surprised, If I see it again, I'd definitely consider buying it again.

Meh. Not bad but barely any maple flavor. Instead I'm getting just a HINT of cigarette smoke - not what I enjoy in brown ales (or any beer for that matter). Not terrible but nothing to drink again.

Pours a light but muddy brown color with amber edges and only a thin layer of head. The nose is bready with a faint trace of maple syrup. The flavor is a bit flat but it is boosted by the lingering presence of the maple syrup.

Pours a dark amber/brown and leaves the same colored body that leaves a large full two finger white head that lasts a good minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing is around the sides of the glass. The aroma has a great combination of brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup and a short roasty nutty aroma. The taste has all of the previously mentioned ingredients combined perfectly. On the palate, the body feels about a medium and leaves a slight stickiness, not bad, nutty aftertaste and finish. Overall, I’ll go out on a limb and say this is probably one of most drinkable browns on the market.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is nutty, lots of dark breads. Taste is bready malts, nuts, light maple, hops are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Into a pint glass, dark chestnut body and brown-tan head of very dense foam. Nose of toast—toasted bread, toasted malt, and a hint of roasted nuts. Flavor follows nose, dominated by toasted malt with some slight sweetness balancing things and a burnt malt bitter finish. Mouth is chewy and a little bit foamy. Overall, a nice toasted malt porter-ish beverage. Enjoyable, would try again.

Murky brown with a thin head.

Aroma: a bit of that maple syrup. Toasted malts. Having trouble smelling much of anything.

Taste: again, the syrup is most notable. Notes of toffee, brown sugar, caramel.

Brown mahogany body with a nougat colored head. Smells of maple, butterscotch, syrup, spicy hops and some alcohol. Tastes malty with milk chocolate, coffee and caramel. Creamy with a splash of bitterness from hops. Balanced, with an ale character that reminds me of why I love brown ales. Love this beer. After one bottle, it's officially in my go-to catalog.
