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

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Reddish/brown pour with a foamy white head.The aroma is less than stellar, with a generic brown ale nose. Fairly malty sweet and caramel malt flavors. I guess if I had to drink tommyknocker, it would have to be a toss between this and the pickaxe. However, I would opt for something else.

Ungstrup (35019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
A red-brown beer with a fine but disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel and nuts. The flavor is very roasted with notes of nuts as well as some burnt notes - I pick up more honey notes than maple sirup. The body is thin.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2005
Aroma is of roasted malt and maple. Head is foamy with a brown tint which watery body, thin feel, and flat carbonated palate. A dark brown body. The sweet maple over powers the taste. Overall a lower than average brown no body and an overpowering sweet taste.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2005
Light white head dissipates quickly. Aroma is slightly sweet and fruity. The beer pours a dark brown color. The flavor is very smooth and drinkable. Not heavy and stout but just smooth with a slight sweet taste from the maple. I like this and will buy it again.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 This syrupy beer pours a very dark brown/transparent amber with a head that disappears immediately. The nose is simple sweet nuttiness. The taste is a maple syrup sweetness upfront, followed by next to no hops presence. The Honey Nut Cheerios sweetness is about all this one has.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Pours brownish with an off-white head that was gone before you noticed. This beer smelled good and tasted good for a bit. Once it was swallowed it lost what I liked.
