I had this beer on a trip to the NE in 99(?) and it was ok. Malt and maple flavor are evident upon first taste. I think this was the first maple beer I ever tried. Overall it wasnt bad, just not quite great either.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this beer on 7/10/1998. Color is a deep dark brown, with low carbonation and very light head. Aroma is the sweet scent of Maple syrup. Taste is rich with a sharp bitterness. It starts with a good medium body that right from the start brings on a smoke taste with light back tones of maple starting as it goes down. All of this builds a little stronger in the finish, which is filled with a sharp bitterness. The smokey maple flavor is a little to strong for me but the rest of this is ok.

Bottle bought in Massachusetts. Dark brown colour. Sweet aroma of raisins and well roasted malts. Flavour: smooth, sweet maple, quite a toasty maltiness, dryish finish. A great tasting different brewed porter, just so tastyindeed! Too bad its no longer brewed.
