Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Poured dark brown color with medium frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted nutty malt and maple syrup aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor and a medium sweet nutty finish of moderate duration. Very good brew and went well with my reuben sandwich.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at Capone’s (thanks RLB for buying me this glass of beer!). Poured a deeper brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas o maple syrup, vanilla, molasses, woodiness, and brown sugar. Tastes of maple syrup, chocolate, vanilla, some woody/earthiness, and brown sugar. Definitely on the sweeter side and a sipper. Alcohol content well hidden.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft at Craft. Pours deep brown with off-khaki head. The nose is maple syrup, brown sugar, malt, vanilla. Tastes sweet, malty, with maple syrup and brown sugar flavors. Smooth and well balanced, but the sweetness is a bit high in this. Try this one with cinnamon almonds.

Big thanks to markwise for bringing down this brew from his trip up north. It pours clear amber with thin white head. The aroma is smooth oak and booze followed by a bit of nose searing heat. I also get softer notes of vanilla, caramel and more oak. The taste is smooth and rich with caramel, some sweet milk chocolate, syrupy molasses and some maltiness. It ends with me thinking this is a pretty sweet tasting brew.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Sampled draft at the brewpub (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a nicely hazed brown, a bit rusty, nice small offwhitehead that dissipates. Aromas are a nice sweet brown sugar, malt, touch nut, tobacco and light maple syrup.. Nice. Initial is nicely sweet, maple syrup and vanilla, a touch of brown sugar, light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Solid body, light enough to drink several but with enough body to really keep some good flavor and light sweet residual aftertaste. Quality brown ale, high ABV that hides well. Cheers!

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2009
[Draft @ Capones] Poured a dark brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of maple syrup, caramel malts, wood, and toast. Taste of sweeter maple syrup, vanilla, caramel, wood, bourbon, nuts, and alcohol in the finish.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2010
On tap at Founders in July 2009. Pours a deep brown with some rusty hues. A nice tan head and plenty of lacing as it goes down. Lots of maple syrup in the nose alongside sweet malt and a little bit of caramel. Hints of vanilla as well. The taste is much the same, with the maple really shining through and combining perfectly with some woody notes. The mouthfeel was full, smooth, silky, and absolutely amazing. Quite drinkable all around, and was a nice substitute for CBS when I was there. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-05-2009

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of maple syrup, vanilla, and a little brown sugar. Poured deep amber in color with a large, rocky, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of maple syrup, vanilla, and slight wood. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, maple syrup and wood finish is dry. 10%ABV is totally hidden.
