(Bottle) Tastes like pepsi + maple syrup. Very thin, and very astringent. Not recommended.

Caramel, chocolate, cereal. Frothy head that stays, deep brown like a nut brown. Bitter, slightly sweet. Thin, lightly carbonated. Overall, drinkable if not great.

"Thin, but quite good, more in the English style than the typical American style. Pretty subtle on the maple for something with maple in the name, but it’s good enough to forgive them :)"

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Made in Oregon.
Aroma: light caramel malt with chocolate and vanilla.
Appearance: very small, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, light-brown body.
Taste: lightly acidic initial taste and lightly sweet, smokey finish with short duration.
Palate: light-to-medium bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: nothing memorable. I didn’t detect any maple whatsoever.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Not sure I get any Maple syrup out of this one.   Somewhat thin, yet clean.   Roasty, but not strong.   A very soft Porter overall.   Light bitterness.   Smooth, but needs to be a bit more chewy.   Wished the Maple sweetness was larger.   As is, okay.

Portland airport buy. Doesn’t look like a porter. Pours the color of maple syrup. Little head. Sweet malty beer. Not very poter-esk. very drinkable but not noteworthy. Not stylistically rateable

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by beastmaster. Pours amber reddish orange with a small white creamy head. Aroma of maple, hot garbage, lager yeast. Weird. This looks and smells nothing like a porter. Flavor is, um, some combination of maple wood chunks, Asian tea leaves, smoke (wtf?), more tea. Well that was weird. Medium body, a bit watered down, with medium plus plus carbonation. Not sure about this one. Not offensive really, just a bit bland and boring. And definitely not a porter.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle with Willi. Smells sweet and slightly dry of caramel and fresh wort. Tastes dry and surprisingly hoppy, with maybe a hint of oak. Really not a Porter at all, more of a red.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bought somewhere. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. A sweet nose of caramel, toasted malts, some maple maybe. The flavor is similar: maybe some roast, really toffee and toasted malts, sweet maple. A tad thin. Overall, good.
