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.

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.

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.

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.

On draught at coalition - pours a very dark clear brown. Foamy white head. Nose of coffee beans, roasted malt, and earthiness. Taste is of malt, diluted coffee, with slight taste of maple. Wanting a little more maple in this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Coalition Brewing in Portland, OR on 4 June 2013.
Poured a very appealing dark brown with a light brown persistent head. Surprisingly light, quite sweet aroma. Maple is quite forward on the flavour and the sweetness is totally balanced. The mouth feel is also a little watery, but the flavours are still good. Ok beer, but the Bourbon aged version far surpassed it.
