3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured a dark brown color with a huge frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted dark chocolate and maple aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good, a little to sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of maple with dark grains and a bit of roastiness and sweetness underlying. Flavor has a lot of roasted notes with some maple coming through to add some sweetness.

Dark pour orange/ruby hue thin off white head ... aroma is of sweet maple syrup and roasted ... taste is maple syrup and roasted ... a nice sweet syrup taste not overbearing but not nonexistant which seems to be hard to pull off ... thin roasted mouthfeel with caramel malts too .... sweet roasted finish .... a solid and tasty porter abv hidden well ... they should definitely go to this brew more often
