12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark amber brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that steadily diminished down to a thin film and large collar, which produced good sticky lacing.
The aroma was kind of faint of a toasted chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel and maple syrup.
The taste was lightly sweet and a little malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a hint of chocolate early on, finishing mildly roasty with a slightly pronounced maple syrup presence towards the end. The flavor was short lived with the sweet roastiness fading quickly from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall I found this brew to be a bit light for a Brown Ale, although it did posses a good roasty taste and smooth drinkability, which makes it a perfect candidate for a session beer…
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 (2673) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Backlog entry: Flight at the brewery. A nice selection, several IPAs. Good all-around. True to style. djd07 (14355) - 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. Hermod (7688) - 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. 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.

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. Brandman (2941) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Just numeral ratings due to social interaction. Yes, there is still some. Even though smart phones exist. snoworsummer (5614) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours nut brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like nutty malt, sweet maple, syrup, and corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty malt, sweet syrup, and maple.
