3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely an aroma of maple and pecan. The appearance seemed a bit light for a porter. Medium body with a slight bitterness. Overall a nice beer during the winter for me.

330 ml bottle in New York, USA. It pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is light roast, maple, some pecans and a touch of vanilla. The taste was pretty much the same with roastiness and some maple added. It had a subtle pecan flavor and was thin on the palate as well. OK

pours a very dark brown almost black, aroma is straight up maple syrup. cocoa, and pecan. really defined by the syrup. the flavor is the same as it smells, maple syrup through out, with chocolate, and roasted malts, finishes with pecan then maple syrup again. for what it sounds like this is a pretty good beer. the palate is medium to a lighter heavy.. I would recommend it for a winter style beer.

Bottle from Zac. This started with a nice base porter that was not covered up by the flavor additions. Nice bits of coffee plus some nuttiness. Maybe a hint of metal in the middle but nice overall and nice ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Brownish red colour, moderate almond head. Smells like a maple pecan coffee, if such a thing exists, maybe a hint of soy sauce. Taste is like a maple nut chocolate from like a Christmas box of chocolate, light porter coffee. Crisp body. Overall, this is what it says it is, a maple pecan porter.

Bottle. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Average carbonation. Deep reddish brown color. Sweet, syrupy caramel porter flavor. Bitter finish. Definitely a dessert beer. About as good as it gets for a bottle porter.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured brown with a beige head. Nose of nuts and maple syrup. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth. Flavor is very rich with maple first, then nuts, and chocolate following . Finish is roasted nuts. Very tasty.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The pour is dark brown with red and it is pretty much clear despite the dark hue. A smallish tan head. The aroma is big chocolate with some nuttiness. Maple comes in after those. I taste milk chocolate with caramel, maple, nuts, and a little astringency. Some light coffee roasted notes appear late. This is quite sweet. No hops are found anywhere.

Lovely looking beer, with a nice nutty flavor but it was sweet and gave me the impression of added syrups.
