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.

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 Sam’s 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.

12 oz bottle from the Spring Thaw sampler case. A minor disappointment, mostly from the lack of any strong flavors of maple or pecan. I expected more and got less.

Nutty maple aroma in a dark but thin-looking pour. Taste also a bit thin with slight maple and malty sweet flavor. Decent flavored beer in a sampler pack but not something I’d buy alone.

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.

Deep brown with mahogany highlights and a decent beige head. Aroma is heavy maple, light tree bark, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is of caramel, pecan, chocolate, maple, sweet cream.

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

I loved this beer. Very sweet with dark maple flavors and a creamy smooth texture to finish.

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