COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As we head into the heart of Autumn, the leaves keep falling and the weather gets colder, and we've created the perfect beer to counter the chill.

Originally brewed for the Borefts Beer Festival, All The Leaves Are Brown is a seasonal Brown Ale brewed to imperial strength and laced with maple syrup. Pour it into a glass and you'll be treated to a wonderful aroma of caramel and treacle, and on first sip you'll get both mixed with a rich, malty sweetness, maple syrup and full, sticky mouthfeel.

Outside of Borefts, we poured this for the first time at our Oktoberfest, and after having people vote on their favourite, it was our Beer of the Festival! It's now in bottle, but extremely limited edition, so be quick if you want to get your hands on it.

Mallorn (44) - Sevenum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2018
0.33 cl bottle from Drank van de Meisjes. At Borefts 2017 I saw this beer on tap, promised myself to get it later that day. I forgot. Seemed to be one of the better beers on Borefts so I decided to get a bottle whenever I found one.Its a good thick brown beer with a nice lasting brownish head. I tasted some hazelnuts as well. However the syrup makes it ubersweet. I've never tasted maple syrup to be honest. And apparantly I'm not a big fan of that flavour. I understand people like it, but it isnt for everyone for sure.

Fin (11171) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2018
Keg at Brewdog, Doghouse, Merchant City, Glasgow, Sunday 11th February 2018 in the company of Nick and Anna. Incredible aroma, lots of dark treacle, really rich. Very dark brown with thin rim of beige creamy bubbles. A very thick in the mouth beer, but this is a beast, dark treacle, very sweet, but glorious. Loz says that she would like this on the Ice Cream, I agree. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

Svesse (9135) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2018
(Draught at BrewDog Camden, London, 23 Nov 2017) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of caramel, treacle, maple syrup, vanilla and coffee. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, caramel, maple syrup, treacle, vanilla, roasted nuts, a touch of peanut butter and a mild cacao bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. Interesting and very tasty beer, with lots of nuts and treacle. Surprisingly balanced for its strength. Great beer.

beer-yum (2005) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 2, 2018
Massive chocolate malt aroma in a jet black pour. Similarly massive flavor profile with semi-sweet vanilla chocolate dried fruit dribbled with maple syrup. A spectacular take on the style.

Keg at Brewdog Soho, London. A very dark brown coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Very rich aroma of maple syrup, caramel and vanilla. Tastes very rich and sweet, maple syrup, caramel, vanilla, a little chocolate. Delicious but pretty sweet for me.

4.2
ciocanelu (3194) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 22, 2018
Brown color with some reddish hues, creamy tan head. Aroma has cacao, caramel, fudge, maple syrup and some bourbon notes. Taste is sweet, quite maple forward, lots of sticky toffee and caramel, some earthy bitterness on the finish to balance the flavors. Full bodied, soft carbonation, feels really smooth. There is some alcohol warmth but it doesn't bother. Really tasty beer.

3.9
Martinus (4762) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2018
Clear dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of caramel, treacle, loads of maple syrup, brown sugar. Light bitter, sweet malty flavour, maple and caramel. Finish treacle, maple and caramel. Nice stuff, especially for a brown ale!
