3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has a hint of maple in there, but there isn’t too much to it. Taste is actually a little sweet with just a hint of roasting underneath. Too far away from a traditional porter for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark browns with black inclinations – that moment just before night covers the world. Lovely crema head fades into a thin collar bordering a carefree puddle. Swirls with no lace.
Maple and dry earthen nutty Swiss chocolates. Dark stone fruits. Smooth and creamy. Freshly picked cherries in the middle, the darker the better.
Maple and cherries amidst a moist soft chocolate cake of decadent award-winning proportions. The mouthfeel is like velvet – divine. Cream and dark stone fruits in the middle with delicate maple accents. Rustic finish with campfire smoke and burnt wood. Slowly grows some bakers chocolate in the breath as she warms up. Silken.
Made with maple from Mary’s Maple Trees, this Brewmaster’s Reserve from the classy gents and dames at Brooklyn Brewery was liquid sophistication and gentility. Dark wooden rooms, tendrils of cigar smoke, a snifter of Mary’s Maple Porter, and life is indeed good. A newbie of sorts to the craft beer world, Mary is in no way new to beer and her attention to quality and detail I feel and tasted will bring another level of awesomeness to Brooklyn Brewery.

I was surprised and really happy to taste this beautiful maple porter from draft during my visit in NYC last week. I tasted loads of American craft beers. Many good, some ugly but this maple porter was the best of the whole trip.

Draft at mad mex shady side. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Slight sugar note on the nose. Bigger maple notes on the nose but it’s a little cloying for my taste.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land
Pours a deep black with a thick body and a nose of light pecan and faint maple. Flavor is semi-assertive maple with pecan bits. Oily on the tongue. Not bad.
