3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Spring variety pack. Pours cola brown with a frothy, tan head. Sweet malts, caramel, chocolate and nutty aroma. Initial flavor is bittersweet cocoa with a nutty dryness. The maple flavor really comes out in the finish and lingers nicely on your lips. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Might be a little too sweet for some folks but this is quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from the Spring Mix pack, again, in freaking December, but I regress. Pours a very dark brown with a thick tan head, aroma is very nutty and sweet with quite a bit of caramel, the flavor has a lot of toffee on the front end with the maple coming through in the finish, quite a bit actually, a little bit of chocolate as well, actually not all that bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a slightly creamy beige head, slowly fading and some lacing. Aroma and taste of sweet malt, roasted caramel and some pleasant maple syrup flavor. Palate is a medium body, slightly creamy with mild carbonation and a bit sticky. Finishes with a sweet lightly roasted caramel and a bit of nutty pecan maple syrup ending. Overall a good drinking and flavorful brew.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a great tasting beer. You can really taste the carmel notes in the beer while you drink it. The aroma had notes of the pecan and maple in it. Really great beer and I wish they would put it in a six pack for fall.
