Red-brown color with disappearing off-white head. Aroma sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is heavily roasted almost burnt. A bit too syrup-sweet with too little maple flavor. Thin body, watery texture.

Poured from bottle. Pours a clear, thin looking, pale brown with a creamy 1 finger head. Aroma is fairly mild, some mild caramel and maple notes. Taste is a touch of weak coffee, milk chocolate, slightly burned extract, and maybe a touch of maple. There is also a slightly off sweet/tang flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Not bad, but not memorable either.

Sickeningly sweet smell with a flavor to match. Smooth but very little carbonation. Very sweet maple syrup taste with a tounge coating feel at the end of each sip.

Not as good as the Imperial version, but still very tasty. The nutty qualities are wonderful.
