1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark brown, a bit of junk floating around, quickly fading head. Smelled like tree bark. Somewhat thin initially, abruptly turned scorchingly sour from an unbalance amount of roasted flavors. Some faint maple sweetness came at the very end, along with some more woody flavors. The sweetness came way too little too late to save this wretched beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
