COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Beer Lover’s Choice 2011.

Samuel Adams is bringing you Maple Pecan Porter. A nutty syrupy porter that just reeks of New England.
Sweet New England maple syrup and a distinct pecan note define this balanced porter. The roasted character of our blend of malts complements the maple sweetness with hints of coffee and chocolate. Reddish-black in color, this full-bodied brew has a sweet and slightly nutty finish.

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.

Pours a deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is nutty with notes of chocolate. Flavor is milk chocolate, caramel, maple syrup, nuts, and woody notes. Medium body with medium carbonation and a sweet finish. Decent porter.

Beerathon (1286) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
This brew tastes just like what its name suggests. The maple comes through once cracking open the bottle. The pecan is there in the flavor too. I sweet beer that is good for a dessert.

Nephilium (1416) - Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
Aroma is sweet maple, and roasted nuts. Pours a very dark brown, with a light tan head. Very sweet flavor, with maple very forward. The nuts come out a little in the finish, but the predominant characteristic is still the maple. If you like sweet beers, you’ll probably enjoy this one more then me.
