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

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

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 (6246) - 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 (10522) - 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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dark Red. Fairly pleasant aroma with notes of butter toffee, caramel, coffee beans, dark fruits and maple. This is pretty tasty and well balanced. My only gripe is that it is a little too sweet. Notes of dark berries, toasted, munich, and caramel malts along with slight chocolate and coffee.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2004
Tasted in Colorado (Denver). Obatained from a beer store in Dillon (near Keystone). Aroma is sweet, like confectionary sugar sweet. Appearance is deep brown/copper colour. Almost no head. Tatse is very sweet, not very complex, and one dimensional. Way too confectionary sweet for my licking. Little or no ’maple’ flavour present.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 I love this one. Reminds me of being a little boy at the breakfast table with a stack of pancakes, waiting for that precious Vermont nectar to rain down upon them... Yummy...

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Dark brown appearance, short-lived foam. Strong sweet malty aroma, slightly syrupy. Sweet malty, syrupy, sugarry flavor. Slight bitterness and nutty dryness towards the end but remaining sweet right through. Pretty interesting.

As most others have been saying, this is apretty ordinary brown ale, without anything to really recommend it.
