COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate amount of Maple syrup is added to each barrel of our award winning Maple Nut Brown Ale to impart roasted sweetness. This addition balances the nut flavor produced by Munich caramel and chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable dark amber ale with a relatively low alcohol content. 2000 World Beer Cup Gold Medal & 1996 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal Winner

Dark brown with a tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is nuts, toasted wheat bread, and some maple. Flavor is sweet malts, nuts, and toasted bread. There is some slight maple in the flavor too. A bit watery.

Aroma is sharp and almost cheese like. Red/brown with a small fading head. Basic brown ale with a bit of woody maple sweetness. Not bad not good.

Dark brown, pretty basic like their others, nice brown ale with sweetness from the maple syrup, not overpowering and not very complex, but I liked it.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Deep red, not particularly brown. What nose is there is of cocoa and light malt sweetness. Flavor is light sweet chocolate, toasted caramel, some overly sweetened roasts. Bit of maple syrup to it, but not too much. Very sweet, but not horrid.

playing foosball and drinkn beer or skiing whatever it was i had this beer at downstairs erics in breckenridge. dark brown liquid with a tan funkafied head. caramel coated nose of a fallen biscuit. flavors in the mouth are pushed with full carbonation and walnut and rock candy. actually does have a nutty flavor. reserved and misunderstood feelings here. quite thin and uninteresting.

I had thought highly of this beer for about 3.5 years until this recent bottle I had. Now I know I got a bad batch, because every other time I got this beer it was really good. This time, however, it was sick. I bought a 6-pack and didnít even finish the first beer before I took it back to the store. The overall aroma and taste was sour, and the sourness overpowered any maple flavor that might have been there. It was really gross; not the tasty maple beer I remembered. I donít know what happened, but I wonít try it again until a 2006 batch is made.

definitly has the flavor of maple syrup. Not to overpowering but it is pretty sturdy. Smooth with a slightly strong aftertaste.

Pours a medium brown. Araoma is sweet, with maple and chocolate. Taste is kinda funky, a little sweet. Not a lot there.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with goldtwins, thanks Larry!) Enjoy within 4 months of 22-Jul-05, so Iím a few weeks late. I tried twice to rate a healthy bottle of this beer, and now that this second bottle is infected too, I think Iíve put enough effort into this. The nose is only moderately sour and funky, so itís not horrendously bad, but it overwhelms whatever other aromas there might be, and infection is still readily apparent. Sourness has taken over the flavor as well, and though itís not undrinkable, I have no desire to take another sip. Medium bodied and well-carbonated, but how nice can an infected beer feel on the palate? Ruddy brown in color and very hazy, the body is topped by a light tan head that settles to a wide ring. A polka dot pattern of lace decorates the glass. Maybe if I get this as a bonus in the future, Iíll give it a third try, but Iíve given up on actively seeking out a clean bottle.

Bottle. A deep molasses/fudge aroma. Medium dark brown color with small head. Sweet dark maple syrup and light malt flavor. On the light side palatewise. I would like more of a malty beer flavor.
