Bottle. I said damn, boys. This really has this high of a score? Well it’s what the bottle claims. But I’m not a fan. Balanced well, nice maple and honey aroma with a syrup taste over a porter. I don’t really wanna hate this since it’s 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 wasn’t 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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
