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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark, amber color with a frothy off-white head. Aromas of maple and pecan (gosh, just like the label says!). Taste is very sweet with flavors of maple, pecan, and a hint of coffee. Has medium-to-full body with a creamy texture. Carbonation is lively. Finish is long and just a touch astringent. If I had to sum up this beer in one word, it would be "Tasty!".

Iím surprised at this one. With a name like maple pecan porter I expected a weak porter with a sligh artificial maple and pecan flavor. That is not what this is. Pours a nice dark brown with a medium head that disappears fast. Aroma is sweet. Nutty with a lot of malts and maple. The maple pecan shines through here. Tastes like a porter with a malty bite but with a sweetness that hints at maple and nuts. The maple and pecan isnít pompous here, this is a porter first, and maple and pecan second. Its nicely sweet. The body is lighter than any porter I have ever seen ever though. Its not bad, its just thin... This is another solid entry from sam adams. Its not my favorite, but itís mainstream enough to be able to fall back on if I ever need a beer somewhere!

Got this in a bottle. Pours dark redish but a little transparent. There is a small head that dissipates quickly. It smells mapley and tastes mapley and a little hoppy. Overall itís pretty good and I would get this again with no problem.

I donít know, I guess I expected more. I wanted to try this one a lot but I was a bit disappointed with it. Its still good though, kinda sweet

12 oz bottle from a mixed case. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that slowly recedes to a splotchy film. The aroma is mild with sweet maple syrup, roasted grains and some earth. The taste favors the maple flavor in a big way; lots of maple syrup with a bit of nuts, cocoa and vanilla. The palate is just a bit thinner than I prefer in a porter and the carbonation is soft. Finishes long and cloying with sweet maple sticking around. Overall: Fans of maple syrup will love this one.

Quality is there. Brown pour with tan head. Aroma is nutty with a little coffee back. Tatse is bitter, nutty and maple. Good, but not my taste.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Dark pour with a light creamy head. The aroma is much like its name, nutty with a taste of maple syrup. Initial flavor is roasted and nutty with a sweet finish from the syrup. Medium body, the flavor is a little too sweet for my liking for a porter.

finn1918 (198) - Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a deep black with ruby highlights and a 1-finger tan head. Aroma is pecan pie and maple syrup/pancakes. Taste is fairly typical porter with some dark nuts, coffee, and maple hints... nowhere near as overpowering as the aroma. Sweet and *almost* bitter finish. Nice thick mouthfeel, but not too syrupy. This is an interesting dessert beer.

Location/Date:Bottle on 3/2/2013.

Appearance: Pours a dark caramel.
Aroma: Aroma of maple syrup, light pecan.
Taste: Light roast, sweet from maple, some pecan, faint chocolate.
Palate:Medium body, flat carbonation, short finish.

Summary: Not a bad porter, but the amount of different flavors muddles it a little bit.

A bit on the syrupy side, but I guess thatís to be expected from the name and description. Tasty stuff, though, just a bit like artificial pecan sweetener youíd put in coffee or something.
