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.

Bottle. I said damn, boys. This really has this high of a score? Well itís what the bottle claims. But Iím not a fan. Balanced well, nice maple and honey aroma with a syrup taste over a porter. I donít really wanna hate this since itís literally exactly what was described but meh, not for me. 5.6% alcohol.

This beer smelled like nuts and roasted malts, and the appearance was a deep brown with a medium tan head. The taste was quite sweet and a touch sour, and the palate combined a medium body, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish for a drinkable, sweet, yet sturdy beer.

Bottled pours brown with light tan head. Coffee maple syrup and nuttiness aromas abound. Moderately sweet? Medium bodied. Finish is maple syrup sweetness, not sure what I was expecting, but this wasnít my favorite

Maple and pecan are aftertastes. Overriding flavor is coffee, and flavor is outstanding.

Clear dark brown with a creamy off-white. Aroma of syrup, coffee and nuts. Taste is sweet with a slight bitterness. Medium bodied, a little creamy, and slightly dry but still a tad thinnish.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. This is the beer that sold me on the Sam Adams Spring Sampler pack. Pours a dark brown with a decent light tan head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Not getting a whole lot of aroma here. Faint roasted malts, slight pecan and maple. Nothing much at all. Taste is malts up front and a bit too strong. Maple and pecan come in behind the malts, but both are somewhat watered down and dulled. Strong maple taste in the finish. Medium body, somewhat thin, slick texture, average carbonation. Big disappointment, although I probably had my expectations too high. Certainly nothing special though.
