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

The Maple Nut Brown poured a dark brown with red highlights. It had a smallish head with tiny bubbles that quickly dissipated to a thin film. It had a subtle malty, nutty nose with some maple thrown in. It has a nice full bodied malty, maple taste...maybe a tad too sweet though. This is a very drinkable beer that I like to order all the time.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Dark reddish brown color, slight carbonation, no head. Flavor of sweet and slightly roasted malts, caramel, nuts, and maple. Kinda syrupy. Flavor was good but needed to be be more pronounced. Also needs more lively carbonation.

Darker brown colour to it, little but of malt in the flavor and I didnt really pick up any maple, definately more of a caramel.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Brown with a hint of copper in color. Light tan head. Hints of dark malts and alfalfa in the nose. Flavors of caramel malt and a funky yeast culture. Sweet and slightly nutty. Slight lactic quality that does not fit that well.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of nuts and malt with a little sourness. Flavor is sweet, nutty and some maple. But there is a sourness that just doesn't fit. Thanks Dogbrick

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Dark amber-brown color, clear body, and medium off-white head that completely faded. Aroma of molasses, nuts, and maple syrup. Sweet maple syrup flavor. Tastes like cooled wort. No complexity whatsoever. Some woodiness or hops could have helped this beer but they're not there. Palate is sweet and syrupy. Too sweet and rather cloying after awhile.

Not bad. Your average brown ale more or less but there's a nice little maple aftertaste. Worth a try at least.

Dark brown in color with a creamy head. Aroma is roasted malt/nut. Flavor is sweet with some hop notes. Body is a bit thin but very drinkable. The best of the Tommyknocker sampler pack. Which realy doesn't say much.
