From bottle 6 months. Smells of smoky chocolate and toffee. Thin head and body. Flavor is chocolate, toffee, less smoke than the nose. Body is thinner that expected. I apptecoate the lack of booziness. Not getting any maple though. Solid beer.

Bottle, from notes. Smoky Roasty malts dominate. Hints of coffee and chocolate, I’m getting the rye but getting zero on the maple syrup.

Bomber pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a small tan head. Aroma of smoked malts, rye, and chocolate. Taste of dry rye, smoked malt, chocolate, and a touch of maple syrup. Well round, a pretty nice smoked porter.

SpartanStout (8) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2014 does not count
Overwhelmingly smokey aroma. Light beige head. Tastes much different than the scent. A rich chocolate aroma and roasted malt. I would definitely drink this again.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste smokey, chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was ok. I wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep mahogany tinged brown into an English pint. Mocha micro head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets to coat surface. Sweet smoke and milk chocolate aromas. Dry with chocolate and maple upfront turning to mild smoke before the lasting espresso finish.

wlajwl (4058) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2014
Aroma is toffee, caramel, dark malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is dark malts, mild smoked malts, fruit, chocolate and the signature porter acidity found only in the great porters.

Over carbonated head and initial CO2 like weak nose that finally dissipate leaving solid smoked ashy malts, pumpernickel bread, espresso, Turkish pipe tobacco and a faint touch of maple vapours. I hate to say it but too ashy and smoky on the palate without something else to back it up... maybe the maple they promised? More bready rye? Pig = Bacon right? Then why does this not taste more meaty? (salt would have likely helped out there).... So in overview, the over carbonation just ruins everything! If that was dialed back then I would have enjoyed this more. Disappointing beer but at least drinkable (so far 4 hands is batting .500, good in baseball but bad in beer). Still I am looking forward to seeing how the tap offerings fare this summer.
