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.

Pours black with a off white head. Aroma is roasty malts. Roasty coffee with sweet maple. Way to sweet for its own good and not enough bitterness. Ends up making it have a slight metallic taste. Not even very stout like as far as the malts. Not terrible but not good.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a clear, but dark reddish brown with a 2 finger, creamy beige head. Sweet caramel, toffe, maple and brown sugar in up front in the nose, nice nutty notes and some roast from there on out. Very nutty and sweet flavor, light roast, tons of sweet maple and some brown sugar and spice. Light to medium body, syrupy feel, light, but slightly sharp carbonation. Really not very good, itís like somebody squirted a bunch of coffee flavoring syrups into a cheap brown ale.

Very nice nutty aroma, with hints of syrup. Pours a very dark brown with a creamy head. Tastes of a nice blend of syrup and nuts, with a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste. Thick, satisfying mouthfeel. Overall a very nice beer, one of the better Iíve ever had.

This is a delicious and wonderfully calibrated porter--not overly sweet, it is full of nutty and roasty character of pecan with a nice trace of maple syrup hovering in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
