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

Not to impressed with this. Slight aromas and taste. Taste is artificial Maple is there but doesn’t save it. Once it goes down taste is gone.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Pours brownish with an off-white head that was gone before you noticed. This beer smelled good and tasted good for a bit. Once it was swallowed it lost what I liked.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 This looked like a frothy iced tea. The maple syrup, and little else, is present in the aroma. This is very watery in the mouth, way beyond what I would expect from a brown ale. The taste is light caramel, chocolate, and maple. Weak.

Suttree (5540) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Brown, with a tan head. Woodsy, maple aroma. Smoove, like Denzel. Big notes of maple, as one might expect from a beer named "Maple Nut Brown Ale". Nicely sweet, not over poweringly so. Slight hop crispness at the end. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

Pours a dark brown amber color. small tan head. Aroma is sweet maple syrup, and malts. Flavor is sweet and malty, a little thin overall. Thanks to JCapriotti for this one!

Beautiful looking beer. Another beer by Tommyknocker that taste like water. Better then the last one at least.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Surprised to see the average on this beer. Thought it was a pretty drinkable beer overall. A little watery and slighty too sweet which both bring overall down, but still a very good beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pours dark brown with a good-sized head. Decent aroma, very sweet. Almost nonexistent flavor--tastes a bit like sugar water. If you’re stuck with some of these, drink them straight from the bottle--they’re a little more bearable that way.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle: Real malty brown sugar, maple syrup, and chocolate aroma. Real dark brown with a little red when held to the light. Insignificant white head. Light malt up front increases in the finish. Most of the flavor in the finish which consists of chocolate, roastiness, light nuttiness, light brown sugar, and very little hops. Nice balance of flavors in the finish. While this brewery hasn’t produced any samples that are jaw dropping, they are vastly underated on this site based on overall scores.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Sparkling clear, mohagony ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a light note of smoke and heavier notes of vanilla, dried plum, milk chocolate, maple syrup and toasted nuts. The flavor is decently balanced, but the malt wins out. Very reminiscent of a Scotch ale. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Medium-length, malty finish. Thanks to springslicker for the bottle.
