COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Beer Lover’s 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.

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 that’s to be expected from the name and description. Tasty stuff, though, just a bit like artificial pecan sweetener you’d put in coffee or something.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with an aroma of maple syrup, pecan, light caramel, roasted hazlenut, and Coke. Flavor is a rush of soda-infused maple and pecan with a finish of sweet nuts, roasted carmel, and a small soda biscuit. Decent mouthfeel. Tasty. I’d have another.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown cola color with a little white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is porter spice and some sweetness and maple. Taste is pretty typical for a porter, very little roast and some maple comes through. A little bit of nuttiness from the pecan. Medium body.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours deep brown almost black with minimal tan head that laces well. Aroma is of maple and pecan with sweet caramel and bit of coffee. Pronounced sweet malt flavor with a hint of bitter coffee. A bit of a weak body though. Finishes sweet and nutty. I do love a refreshing Sam Adams

Frozer (205) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Thick tan head leaves heavy lacing down the glass. Strong maple syrup aroma. Tastes chocolatey and coffee. Hard to taste any nut or pecan flavor. Has a relatively dry finish. Very easy to drink with excellent mouth feel.

radio_nowhere (1210) - Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 12oz bottle from spring variety pack. Poured into English pint glass, reddish dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma of maple syrup, brown sugar, pecans, bread and caramel malt. Taste is the aroma adding some chocolate sweetness, light coffee, nuttiness and a hint of vanilla. Thick body, rich, creamy, oily and sticky. Much better beer then I expected, with SA’s flavored beers you never know.

Mora2000 (6049) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Very dark brown with a large off-white head. The aroma is full of toasted malt, caramel and quite a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is better than the aroma. I get a good dose of sweet milk chocolate, as well as some strong maple syrup and vanilla notes. There is also some pecan flavor that comes through quite nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a dark red-brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma of maple, nuts, and light coffee. Flavor of coffee with a lot of maple at the finish. Quite sweet.
