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.

RSRIZZO (1931) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (4025) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours coca cola brown with an inch of khaki foam. Nice maple and caramel notes on the nose. Rich, robust taste. Finishes clean. Maybe my favorite from the BBC.

tgncc (3073) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 9, 2013
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 (1695) - 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 there’s a creamy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is definitely of maple syrup and pecan. I wasn’t 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: It’s 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 (1517) - 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 (1260) - 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. Couldn’t 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 (112) - Benton, Kentucky, USA - APR 3, 2013
One of the finest brews I’ve 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.
