Bottle. Pours solid brown with a thick, foam, tan head. Smells carmely, toffee, maple, nutty. Tastes sweet, with a carnival of flavors. Maple is the primaryflavor with some toffee, roasted nuts, vanilla, butter, and carmel. Tastes like dessert from the state fair, or butter pecan waffles. One of the most unusual beers I ever had, but definately an excellent brew.

(Tap & Bottle) I have tried this on tap and in the bottle, and I find that the draft is so much better than the bottle. Pours a even brown color with a small beige head. Aroma was very similar to hot chocolate. Dry cocoa and vanilla nut in the aroma as well. Taste is slightly more muted than the aroma, and consists of caramel malts, molasses and lingering sweet vanilla. Palate could be a bit better. All in all, I think a lot of people will enjoy this new offering from Leinies.

Tmoney99 (10466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle from shigadeyo. Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate caramel nutty malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet malt flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Nice soft beer.

vikingguy (796) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Pours an amber-brown color with an off-white quick diminishing head. Aroma is toffe coated almonds and maple syrup. Flavor is slightly disappointing. Thin mouthfeel and artificial maple syrup taste. I was really looking forward to this one as I really love most Leinie’s beer, but this was sub-par.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Deep, clear brown body with a fairly thick white head. Powdered chocolate and nutty aroma, very nice. Medium mouthfeel. Silky, soft, and smooth on the palate. The flavor, much like the aroma, is quite good. Sweet chocolate malt up front leads to just a touch of nutty hops at the end. Well balanced. Quite possibly Leinie’s best.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Dark brown color with an amber hue and a very thin white head. Nutty, maple aroma with a strong maple taste and a caramel malt presence. Kind of unique but a little too much maple.

Strykzone (4831) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2008
A medium brown color. Clear with plenty of carbonation. Tan one finger head with nice retention. Aroma is somewhat muddled but offers musty malt with some nut. Flavor is chocolate, nut, and vanilla. Tastes like an ice cream concoction. The flavor is all about nuts but the roasted variety. The beer warmed nicely and the nuts were actually enhanced. The nuts give it a very unique flavor and it is kind of fun to sample.

Tap. This beer pours to a nice wood colored body with a rich creamy off-beige head. The aroma is decent with nuts and maple. The flavor was quite good with a smoky nutty thing and caramel. Drank a pint at bowling and was actually impressed by this brown ale.

haddon90 (1439) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a thin head. Odd, roasted aroma. Some malt also spinrgs from the glass. Crisp. Has a slight bite at the end. Some malt. A hint of caramel. And some roasted oats. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
