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.

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.

Bottle. Dark look, almost black in color with garnet highlights, ok beige head. The smell is roasty, malts, maple, nuts, and ok. The taste is sweet, maple, syrup, sugary. Somewhat interesting, decent but a little to sweet.
