Disappointment. Nice dark brown body with foamy tan head. Not a bit of maple, however, in the aroma or flavor. Not a bad drink but not a good one either. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Aroma is sweet and somewhat reminds me of maple candies, fittingly enough. Color is almost black, but reddish, with no head to it. Mouthfeel is somewhat gritty, but has a pleasing maple feel to it. Good aftertaste to it as well. igneous1 (1538) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JAN 3, 2004
deep reddish/amber color, again, no head. aroma is pretty roasty, and slightly nutty. flavor is toasted malts and i dont pick up any of the maple syrup, but their the finish and aftertaste are fairly nutty..not all that bad considering the other two beers from tommyknocker i just tried.

A pleasantly hopped, well balanced brown ale that finishes with hint of Maple. Too much Maple would ruin this beer, but it is just right and the hops are too. Worth trying. Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2004
The start is sweet with a sugary maple overtone that the label describes. However, it is only a flash of sustaining flavor. The balance finishes light and the flavor dissapates almost inststantly.

decent ale with maple hints and vanilla carmel complex, i liked this one, but i wouldnt probably try it again Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Dark brown, a bit of junk floating around, quickly fading head. Smelled like tree bark. Somewhat thin initially, abruptly turned scorchingly sour from an unbalance amount of roasted flavors. Some faint maple sweetness came at the very end, along with some more woody flavors. The sweetness came way too little too late to save this wretched beer.

The Maple Nut Brown poured a dark brown with red highlights. It had a smallish head with tiny bubbles that quickly dissipated to a thin film. It had a subtle malty, nutty nose with some maple thrown in. It has a nice full bodied malty, maple taste...maybe a tad too sweet though. This is a very drinkable beer that I like to order all the time. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a dark amber color with hardly any carbonation. Descent maple flavored brew with hints of chocolate and caramel. vector (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Dark reddish brown color, slight carbonation, no head. Flavor of sweet and slightly roasted malts, caramel, nuts, and maple. Kinda syrupy. Flavor was good but needed to be be more pronounced. Also needs more lively carbonation.
