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.

Dark brown pour with an awesome maple syrup, nutty and roasted malt nose. Taste isn’t nearly as good as the smell. Roasted malts and hops with a clean finish.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber brown with large chunky tan head and nice lacing. Smell is roast, sweet caramel, maple. Taste is smooth sweet malts and maple that is well integrated. I get the nuttiness on the backend. I actually liked this one and thought the sweetness was just in check.

Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Mocha head craters and recedes leaving sticky lacing. Sweet caramel, maple and coffee aromas. Thin- to medium-bodied with sweet maple upfront turning to nutty pecan in the middle before the lasting bitter earth finish.

PorterPounder (7431) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle - part of their ’Spring Thaw’ Variety Pak. Deep, dark brown pour, initially frothy khaki colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is lacking just a bit in pungency - brief maple notes. Flavor more than makes up for the aroma. Nice maple accents, not cloyingly sweet, hints of baker’s unsweetened chocolate and the back end is full of pecan pie. Thick and rich mouthfeel. Impressive.

This was surprisingly good. Rich roasted toasted malt nose. Even richer palate, complex, well blended toasted malty notes, with bourbon sticky sweetness and the maple and pecan touches. A great winter beer after a day out hiking.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
What a nice brew! Thanks, Chipalsa! Aroma is big walnut and pecan with a touch of maple and roast as it warms up. Pour is dark brown, light tan head. The flavors are very balanced with roasted notes up front, some nuttiness to follow, earthy notes, and a sweeter maple finish. An awesome effort by Sam Adams.

12oz bottle shared with a friend. Pours a porter red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roast, some pecans, some maple, some chocolate, and some brown sugar with mild coffee. Flavor is maple pecan pie up front with nuts behind it and brown sugar with chocolate further back. Medium in body and very sweet overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
