Tommyknocker Maple Nut ....

Tonight I will have a Maple Nut Brown Ale, from Tommyknocker Brewery.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 4.5% ABV and 20 IBUs.  It is brewed with pure maple syrup.

This beer poured with a small, almost tan head.  Beer color is a darker brown.  When held up to the light, you can see red highlights and some fine sediment in the glass.  The aroma has some nice mellow cocoa, some bread.  There is what seems to be an alcohol scent, but this is pretty low in alcohol so maybe its more of a fermented dark fruit aroma.  I do get a little maple/brown sugar in the aroma as well.  The taste has some malt, cocoa, and a mild sweetness.  I don't really get the maple as a taste.  Mild to medium bodied.  A little "thin" in the mouth.  Slight cocoa aftertaste.
