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

Bottle-The pouris a dark ruby/brownish color with higher than average carbonation. The head quickly disappears to leave a slight maple aroma that is mostly overrun by a nutty, malty smell. The taste was way more roasted than sweet, the maple only appearing in the middle sip, but never lasting through the sip. The palate had a touch of syrupy feel to it.

Sept. 05 bottle courtesy of Degarth: Pours a dark amber mahogany with a light-lacing light tan head. Sweet, sugary maple aroma has a hint of noble hops. Body starts with a light, mild dark sweetness and some nutty notes through a very thin, watery body. The finish is almost non-existent. All the flavor sort of wafts away about half-way through the sip. Theres nothing here off-flavor-wise, but its just very thin and bland for a brown ale.

The color was brown but did not have any head. You could smell the maple syrup. It had a thick taste and very good flavor. Nice finish.

Smooth with slight sweet taste. Expected sweeter but preferred the slight bitterness.

jefcon (1673) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Watery, thin palate is the downfall of this brown. There are occasional bursts of flavor: too-sweet maple syrup and dry coffee/toast, but the beer is in large part flavorless. Gingery, syrupy, grainy aromas are more interesting, but not enough to save the day.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2006
No head on a pure ruby body, absolutely beautiful color. Awesome walnuts and maple aromas. Outstanding maple sugar flavoring, accented with heavy malts, caramel and carbonation. Very sweet ending, with a final accent of Maple. Very enjoyable and highly underrated.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Dark brown color with a thin fully diminishing white head. Aroma of light maple syrup. Flavor of roasted malt and hints of caramel.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Low carbonation, maple-raisin, nut taste only sneaks itself in, as the hops are non-existent. Soft and thin on the palate.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2006
12 oz. Bottle: Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma has hints of nutmeg and caramel. Initial flavor is sweet and finishes thin and watery. I was expecting and looking for a maple syrup taste but couldnt find it.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Draught at Tylers in Durham, NC. Clear ruby brown color with bubbly tan head. Some caramel in the nose, but not much else. Tastes of caramel and brown sugar. Any maple flavor in there was hidden from my tongue. Subtle sweetness up front with a slight metallic finish. Smooth with relatively low carbonation.
