Pours dark brown with a crimson hue and it has a soapy tan head. The aroma has lots of maple, pecans, smooth roast, chocolate, cream and butteriness - good. It has a smooth lush body with mild carbonation. The flavor starts out with plenty of the maple and pecan stated by the name. Also, some cocoa, spice and clean smooth roast are there. The finish is a bit drier and has more spice and a bit of vanilla. Good porter.

A smooth and quite sweet porter. Very heavy on the maple and pecan notes and less focus on the classic porter roastiness you would expect.

12 oz, bb July 13. Opaque black with a lasting film of cream. Nose is a nice blend of maple syrup, dark toasted bread, milk chocolate and a hint of prickly green herb. Taste is maple syrup with a tinny tinge to it, caramel cola, milk chocolate and a dab of sour cream. Some toasted nut, coffee and light green herb appear in the finish. Near-medium body is a bit too sweet and also too fizzy.

12oz bottle from Spring Thaw pack. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Good flavor profile, I can taste the roasted malt of this porter along with the maple syrup and nuttiness from the pecans. Full bodied with creamy mouthfeel and a somewhat sweet finish. I enjoyed this.

12oz into a pint. Taste upfront is syrup, aunt jamima maybe, then the maple interflow begins and is followed by the introduction of the peacan. A nice meshing to a flavorful porter. Roasty attributes to cocoa, syrup, nuts and choco delivery a tasty treat. Head is frothy and compact and then covers the brew thoughout. Color is heavy brown with glades of amber sneaking through. I keep going back to a breakfast I had 7 years ago in Kansas. Fun, enlightening, and new. A fresh appeal and new twist on a conventional porter. Nice job.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of maple, nuts, chocolate and toffee. Taste follows, a bit artificial and a little too sweet. Nice to try but I wouldn't want to drink this regularly.

Bottle from spring variety pack. Poured turbid dark brown with minimal tan head. Nose was vienna malt, nuts, maple. Tastes somewhat sweet, with a definite pecan/nut element, some cacao, malt, and finishing maple flavor. Good, but not better than your standard nut brown ale.
