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.

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.

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

jsmerig (1246) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cmonster (972) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Dark brown with amber hues. Maple and pecan on the nose and palate. Medium sweet. Medium body, good carbonation, thin oily texture and a light bitter sweet finish. More of a brown than a porter.

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!
