This beer seemed to have an identity crisis. It’s called a nut brown ale, but leans closer to an amber ale. Body was mostly a dark amber-red hue with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was mostly caramel malts but there was some roasted malts to it. A good hint of sweetness from the maple syrup. Flavor was nice and balanced, some nice malts and a nice sweetness from the maple syrup. There was no real hop note to it, which was disappointing because it seemed to be a two-dimensional beer. Finish was smooth and it was easy to drink.
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 355ml bottle: Pours a clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, definite maple notes and a slight hint of nuttiness. Great flavors of maple and caramel. Low bitterness, medium low carbonation. Overall a really interesting beer that was really good. mabuzzer (909) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017
12oz bottle. Clear brown with a small white head. Sweet maple and malt aroma, flavour is similar, syrupy. naivepegasus (388) - 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 Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 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. 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. VastActiv (7592) - 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. 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.
