COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Beer Loverís 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.

The aroma is maple, pecan, chocolate. The appearance is deep red/brown, slightly translucent, off-white head. The flavor is maple upfront, pecans, some roast. The finish is big maple syrup, roast, light pine. Interesting, but the maple dominates all. Medium/thick to thick in body. Good.

Sample. Nice balance of maple syrup, pecan, and roasty nutty character in a porter. Not bad.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2013
Poured a deep, clear mahogany color with a light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, caramel, nuts, raisin, floral, and molasses. Taste is pecan, chocolate, honey, tobacco, coffee, and a very faint maple. Really liked this one and wish it was available for purchase by itself.

keanex (1401) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2013
Best before June 2013.
Appearance: The body is clear with a deep garnet hue. The head has an average height for a porter with a tan color and great retention. Even 10 minutes after the pour thereís a creamy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is definitely of maple syrup and pecan. I wasnít this to actually smell like it, but it does. The smell has decent strength and leans sweet.
Taste: Sam has delivered on another nutty brown beer, the first being Hazel Brown. This has a nice maple syrup flavor throughout with a pecan finish that is unmistakable. Well done.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Itís a shame that Sam will likely never make this a beer available outside of variety 12 packs. This is a great beer that is exactly how you would expect it to be from the name.

Narnad (1454) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
Pours a red-brown color with a modest off white head. Aroma has a strong nutty presence with modest amounts of chocolate, coffee, toffee and sweet caramel malt and strong maple syrup. Flavor starts off with a strong maple syrup sweetness which transitions to a strong nutty and modest chocolate flavor with a light coffee acidity and bitter flavor at the very end. Body is modest with a sugary feeling and modest carbonation. Definitely a unique brew. Not sure if I would want another one as its pretty sweet as a whole.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pie like aroma that is very sweet. Taste is also very sweet. Pie, sugar and pecans come to mind. Slight metallic taste here and there. Sweetness really lingers. Couldnít drink many of these because they are too sweet. Medium mouth. If you want a beer that tastes like a pie, this is it.

LKT1983 (110) - Benton, Kentucky, USA - APR 3, 2013
One of the finest brews Iíve had in a long time. Great nose, even better finish with the pecan, the maple flavor was just right, not overpowering. Winner of 1st place overall at our "Beer Fest II" sampling party in February.

rocbyter (1895) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2013
Strong sweet malt aroma with a light amount of maple. Dark amber color with a small but lasting tan head. Sweet beginning with a quick bitter middle getting sweet again.

Gachupines (855) - USA - APR 3, 2013
Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is similar to sweetened coffee. Flavor is sweet maple syrup with a roasted coffee back. Very slight not of toasted pecans. Maybe a little light in body, but overall pretty solid.

junon (410) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Not much maple on the nose and only slightly in flavour. There is a hint of roasted pecan. They need to re-work this one a tad bit. Much potential here.
