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.

Bottle. Aroma of slight malt and nuts. Taste is similar. Decent body, pretty solid but nothing special overall. Surprisingly weak. 4.5% alcohol.

On tap at Steakout Saloon. Appearance: kahaki head, finger of head, amber brown, clear. Aroma: maple syrup, toast, chocolate, candied bacon, light smoke. Palate: medium to full body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Taste: cloying malty sweetness. Overall, not balanced at all and not enjoyable. Dislike

Hazy brown with red highlights...short, off-white head.
Maple syrup and nut aroma.
Sweet, smooth nutty flavor with maple hints.
Not overtly maple, but a good, solid brown ale....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Shadyside. Expected more flavor --- hard to find the maple underneath everything else. Not bad, but could nave been better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very unusual color -- dark and cloudy, darker than I expected. Not much head nor lacing. Understated aroma, slightly sweet, Delicious taste though, not overly maple, but you can definitely taste it. No bitterness, good beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, í12
Beer poured from bottle into a pint glass.
A: Sweet maple syrup and a nutty roasted malt flavor; brown sugar notes.
A: Beer pours with a dark brown, opaque body without much visible carbonation. Head was small, about a finger in size and quickly dissipated into little to no lacing.
T: Starts off with a nice sweet maple syrup, which quickly bridges into a nut-packed roasted malt flavor; brown sugar and some faint notes of pear to finish.
P: Thin body; low carbonation; creamy/syrupy feel at first, then quickly fades away; semi-sweet aftertaste, sugar lingers for a while
O: Super sweet; nice maple syrup & nut brown combination. Serving type: bottle

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Dec. 2010. Pours a slick, oil mahogany with little head. Aroma is similar to liquid malt extract and little else. Flavor is sticky sweet maple syrup and malt extract. Light syrup is the predominant flavor here. Slightly oily with syrup flavor in the finish. A bit one dimensional, as the maple syrup sweetness is dominant, but itís a soft enough sweetness to be better than I was expecting.
