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 Iíd buy alone.

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.

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 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.
