On tap at GTMW 2009
Just down the road is Ohio Brewing. Despite that I have yet to visit so I swung by when the opportunity presented itself during some down time. A change of pace from big beers or sours I was looking forward to this interesting take on the porter style. Overall it was OK; I may have to try again on a day when it is not so hot to give it a second chance.

Aroma / Appearance - The maple stands out but not as much as I had hoped. Melding into the coffee and malt it sits lazily in the air above the glass. The body itself is fluid with a dark twist.

Flavor / Palate - The first sip was disappointing. I had hoped for something better at the GTMW. In a different setting this would have been satisfying. I plan on giving it a second chance however. It makes for a great local hook to get people in the door even if it doesn’t compete with the best offerings of places of Fat Head’s, Three Floyd’s, or Livery.

On tap at the brewpub, served too cold but I let it sit for a bit to warm up. Nice sweet and roasty aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee and maple. Nice amber brown color with a lasting, thin head and good lacing. Medium bodied and creamy. Goes down nice and smooth. Great flavor, fairly robust with plenty of sweet chocolate and maple to be savored. Backdrop of fresh coffee and buttered toast. One of the best beers I’ve had there thus far, I hope they keep brewing it.

July 17-19, 2008: Maple Porter pours a cola-brown coor with nothing on top. It has a roasted grain and coffee-like aroma with a sweet flavor containing molasses, coffee, and roasted grains. This medium-bodied porter is pretty decent overall.

Draught sample in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2008. Rating #5 for this beer.

Had on tap at Barley’s Ale House. The aroma was delightful. Flavor was maple syrup, roasted malts, brown sugar and honey. A bit thin for my liking, but the flavor over all was delish! If they could find a way to make this thicker and heartier it would be awesome!

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Clear light brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma, but does not quite smell like a porter. I’m getting notes of lager yeast, which makes it more like a Munich Dunkel. Malty flavor with more of that lagery flavor and not a whole lot of maple. Average at best.

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin beige head. Half rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of maple and honey plus a bit of malt. Medium body with flavors of molasses and maple syrup along with notes of roasted malt. The finish is sweet and malty with a mild hops aftertaste that is short-lived. Just above average all around.
