It poured a dark brown color with a medium tan head. The aroma was full of smooth milk chocolates with some nuttiness. The taste was full of light nutty and roasted aspects, some sweet malts and chocolates, but not too sweet. Very tasty.

On tap, poured into a "mini-hefe" glass (12-16oz?). The aroma is dry with notes of smoke, maple syrup, and and underlying chocolate coffee and bread crust. It’s a rich, dark cola-caramel hue with a dense, tan foam head that has good retention and a light lace. The taste is a medium sweet with a slightly less intense bitter. The beer’s texture is smooth and creamy with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium body. Flavors of light maple syrup and roasty chocolate are most noticeable with notes of light rye and dark fruit poking through. The finish is crisp and clean with a spicy rye grain and a developing maple flavor. The aftertaste is remarkable fresh clean with a chalky clove and a lightly smokey, dry maple.

Draft at baileys range. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Some solid malt notes on the nose. A bit of smoky malt on the tongue but its not as pronounced as I hoped. Finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.

DocJitsu (1267) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a clear, dark,ruby-chestnut brown with a taupe head. Sweet, nutty, and light smoky aromas. Moderately thick with a fine carbonation burn. Nutty and mildly smoky, with a bitterness that balances the sweetness.

Very smoky, dark porter. While smoky in taste, it's incredibly smooth and drinkable for even the softest of drinkers. I'd recommend pairing with barbecue, steak, or chocolate cake.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2015
1/25/15. On tap at the brewpub. Brown pour under a small tan head, mild lacing. I wouldn’t have guessed porter based on the pour. Mild aroma, caramel, barely a whiff of smoke, definitely not maple... just a bit of a generics maltiness. Same on the flavor - a little chocolate and caramel, malty, doughy, very little smoke and basically no maple. Not bad, but generally uninteresting and doesn’t deliver on the description.

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.
