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

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark amber brown with a light biege head. Aroma of nutty malts and ale esters. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little thin on texture. Flavor of caramal, mild cocoa powder, and nutty malts. Average sweetness with a hint of maple. Watery and wet grain finish, and lacks some hop bitterness to bring it into balance. Nothing too exciting here, but drinkable

mabuzzer (849) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017
12oz bottle. Clear brown with a small white head. Sweet maple and malt aroma, flavour is similar, syrupy.

2.8
naivepegasus (387) - USA - MAR 27, 2017
Pours a dark ruby with a quarter finger of beige head that quickly dissipates into a soapy foam. Brown sugar notes in the nose. A bit of a sweet taste, with a kind of watery mouthfeel. Syrupy in flavor with some sweet malt notes. Easy going down, but not overly complex

3.4
Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Backlog entry: Flight at the brewery. A nice selection, several IPAs. Good all-around. True to style.

3.6
djd07 (14626) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy copper with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong maple and roast. Medium body, strong maple syrup, cocoa, light finish, very good.

2.9
Hermod (7936) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Draught @ tommyknocker. Poured brown color with a thin white head. Aroma has caramel, boozy notes, hops. Maple suryp comes through in the finish at least. Feels quite thin overall.

2.7
muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
On tap in Helsinki (Tommyknocker). Medium brown color, small white head with some lacing. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nut flavor, some chocolate malts too. Okay, but nothing special.

2.7
VastActiv (7134) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Tap at Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Colour is brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Chocolate, some nuts and malts. Very easy.

2.6
lhns03 (103) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Pours a dirty mahogany with poor, uneven head that has little retention. Aroma is okay with some nice notes of burnt caramel, malty almost cola notes and a hint of maple nuttiness. Mouthfeel and flavor are pretty poor. Thin and watery with only the bit of sweetness from maple syrup saving the flavor. Not great.

beerhotline (1) - - OCT 21, 2015 does not count
A malty aroma with burnt caramel notes, and a toasty nose. It pours a little hazy, and has the appearance of flat root beer. It starts out sweet, and finishes with a bitter, burnt note. Light body, with a thin texture, slightly fizzy finish.

2.7
Brandman (2950) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Just numeral ratings due to social interaction. Yes, there is still some. Even though smart phones exist.
