3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City. This brew is a dark reddish-brown color with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, chocolate and subtle pecan. The finish is roasty with a maple and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft pint. Opaque brown with a lasting creamy quarter inch of foam. Nose is caramel, cocoa and toasted nut. Flavor is maple, coffee, cocoa, light citrus and toasted nut. Light-medium body is smooth with carbonation, lightly sweet, but well balanced by the roast, and a nice drinker.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
very dark, opaque, yellow ochre head, minimal lacing. Aroma contains a subtle nutty, roasty chocolate. Taste is not too sweet, like a hint of agave, not like the average porter, flavors are fizzy and disappear quickly, easy to drink like Guiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly opaque, reddish-black, off-white head. Aroma is pecans, slight maple. Flavor starts off really thin and watery, then you get a little sour nutiness, and some caramel malt. This beer starts really slow, but grows on you. Growler from the brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2 day old growler. Pours a deep red/black with a pretty good tan head. The aroma is maple up front with baking chocolate, nut shells, and thin coffee. Carbonation is fairly active and the mouthfeel is a bit thin, but that helps make the maple flavor not seem so syrupy. Maple is up front again on the tastebuds, but it is not overkill. In the mix I get nutshells, bitter chocolate, and a sweeter, chewy nut character as well. This is nothing exciting, but it is drinkable. I’m glad the maple flavor was not too overdone.
