Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a dark brownish red color with a tan colored head. Aroma is maple syrup, brown sugar and toasted malts. Flavor is maple, toasted malts and sweetness. It has a bitterness on the finish as well. Not bad. Flavor and aroma intensifies as it warms.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark brownish red with a foamy tan head. Aroma of toasted coffee and deep maple. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a tremendous after flavor of maple syrup and toasted nuts. Slightly bitter offset. I could drink a six of this before moving on to something else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is malty, slightly nutty, with a real subtle maple note to it. Slightly smoky, coffee, and dark chocolate. Appearance is a coca-cola like consistency with a medium tan head that actually lingers around for quite a while. Taste is sweet, got a real nice malt backing, maple come through more in the taste. light pecan, light coffee, and chocolate cake. Palate is medium to low carbonation with an aftertaste that is rather clean. Overall, Nothing really special just a nice beer. Cheers!
