Maple Nut Brown Ale (Tommyknocker Brewery, Idaho Spring, CO)

While I don't doubt the "pure maple syrup" on the label, the taste is more of molasses, thick and sugary with the malty backbone of the nut brown. For me, very cloying and overly sweet body builds uncomfortably. The maple doesn't blend well with the base beer either with a light, watery mouthfeel. Sounds good on the surface, but not much to dig down in to.
