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.

Pours a dark, barely translucent chocolate brown with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma has a definite overtone of maple syrup, plus subtle roast malt and nutty tones. Delightful flavor has roast malt, maple syrup, earthy and subtle coffee notes, a hint of chocolate, a hint of molasses. Texture, though fizzy, lacks thickness. Overall, rather nice. Happy Bunny Day!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark brown with a half finger of off white head. Aroma of maple and roasty nuts with a little coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is medium sweet. Roasty coffee and nuts with loads of maple syrup. Full bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, really great. I would take this in a 6pkdifferent any day.

reddish brown pour with a quick thin tan head. aroma is cola like caramel. Light nutty pecan sweetness. some toasted malt. Flavour is relatively sweet, maple syrupy, pecan pie, again toasted nutty maltiness. Some nutty bitterness in the finish. Thin body and overly sweet middle detracts from this not quite porter for me.

Cola brown with reddish hues. Aroma of toasted malt, coffee, and vanilla. Toasted malt flavor with pecan, coffee, and hints of chocolate, and maple syrup. Quite nice.

Appearance: very dark brown, with a light tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma: chocolate, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and maple syrup, with some toasted nut characteristics. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a hint of coffee and vanilla as well. Finish: ends with pleasantly restrained sweetness, balanced by a bit of roasty bitterness and a whiff of nuts. Notes: Sweetness was present but restrained. Could have been a cloying disaster, but was more balanced than anticipated. Decent!

I will be honest I was pleasantly suprised by this one! Pours dark with a medium head. Syrup,nutty,and brown sugar notes. Taste of pecan pie.

pours dark, dark brown with off-white head. aroma is brown sugar, maple syrup, caramel, and some light pecan/pecan pie notes. flavor is dark malts, maple, and a bit of pecan nuttiness; and despite the fairly light body, there are some sweet cream notes that were unexpected. overall, the maple and pecan notes are pretty light - not a bad thing, though, as they seem pretty natural and the beer avoids the artificial nut flavors and cloying sweetness i was fearing.

Not a huge fan of Pecanís but this was a nice flavorful pecan pie type of beer that pours like motor oil but tastes good.

Definitely not what I expected. Which in this case is a good thing. Not a big fan of overly sweet brews, so when I saw this in the Spring sampler pack, I was a little apprehensive. Pours a dark amber brown with an ivory head that faded pretty quick. Nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, toffee and maple. Taste is mildly sweet, slightly nutty, but by no means overly sweet. Very similar in flavor and body to Samís Chocolate Bock, although not quit as good.

Thin brown to the pour, with a dense tan head. Abrupt aroma of dark malts, some note of maple syrup, some nut detectable. Not as powerful as one can expect from a porter, but nevertheless, enjoyable.
