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.

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 (1517) - 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.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 26, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 12oz bottle, courtesy of Boston Beer. Thanks! Pours a deep, hazy cola-brown color; modest light-tan head with patchy lacing. Effusive maple syrup and nutty sweetness in the aroma; as advertised. Medium body; medium, fine-bubbled co2; following the nose, lots of maple-syrup stickiness and residual sugar here, without much of a robust porter backdrop to carry things; assertive in the maple-syrup category, but overly sweet. Lasting maple sweetness; improperly balanced.

UncleKorm (1086) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
Bottle poured a dark brown hue w/ a tan head. Big aroma of maple, pecans, roasted malts and chocolate. Initial flavor is moderate sweet with a light bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are maple syrup, malted chocolate, and coffee. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and sweet maple finish. The beer delivers on its name, not too sweet but this is a dessert beer for sure.

Metalchopz (2626) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Came in their Spring Thaw pack, purchased at Shaws in Montpelier, VT. Dark brown colour with a beautiful creamy beige head, good retention and very thick lacing. Roasted malt aromas with the maple syrup. Same for the taste, very well-blended not to be too sweet. The pecan nut comes in the aftertaste, creating a little tart. This is a nice flavoured beer for spring.

Ericular (832) - Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pours a deep red with good head retention and great lacing. Aroma is caramel, maple, with just a little smoke and floral hops. Taste is sweet - really sweet at first, into some smoke and charred malts, then settling on a nutty maple lingering finish with a touch of earthy hops. Palate is smooth and full. This is easy drinking and smooth.

Sweet. Probably too much so. Maple flavor, pecan is hidden and sweetness abounds. Aroma is light.

Dark brown with a Brown Head. Smell has a strong aroma of maple, nuts, roasted malts and some chocolate. The flavor has some surprisingly strong maple and roasted malt notes, followed by chocolate and coffee. Body is pretty light and the carbonation is as well; Very creamy body. Great Porter overall!

RSRIZZO (1900) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Stem glass at 40°. Color is a deep near black mahogany with mellow carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is sweet and nutty. Body is medium with a creamy rich mouth feel. Flavor is sweet with maple and a hint of caramel then roasted pecans come in with a touch of chocolate. After taste is dry with a bitter sweet chocolate hanging on. Overall its good but after a while it gets to be a little much.

Appearance is deep brown with small brown head. Aroma is a sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt with some nice roasted nuts. Overall pretty solid.
