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.

Bottle shared at SJ BA gathering. Pours out a nice moderate brownish color with a thin white head. Aroma is of sweet sugary maple and some roasted nuts. Taste is sweet caramel, maple syrup, roasted nuts. Very tasty.

tap at Brew Haven beer fest - Pours brown with a nutty aroma dominant with maple and malt in the background. The flavor is of roasted malt with assertive pecans. Itís medium to full bodied and very good. I voted for this one as the clear winner. Hopefully Sam Adams puts it into full time production.

Sample from bottle at Midwest Brewers Fest. Very deep brown. A definite maple syrup flavor, here, kind of nutty. Thereís a very deep maple taste to it. One of the more off-centered Sam Adams beers. A big drinking beer, massively sweet with a maple praline thread. Luckily Iím not suffering from my usual reaction to nut flavored things.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Draft at Plainfield MWBF. Much better than the other option. Pours an attractive mahoggany with an offwhite head. Nose jumps out as chocolatey with a distinct bittersweet pecan note. It is even stronger in the taste, lending a nuttiness. The maple is quite subdued overall but the flavor profile is distinct and well proportioned. Solid beer for sure.

MadIndian (2366) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Draft. Deep brown caramel pour. With aromas of maple, caramel malts and nuts. Taste is very similar to aroma with the exception of the pecan being very up front. A nice dry / moderatley sweet finish. Good.

Tap. Maple pecan malt aroma. Dark brown color with small head. Lightly sweet pecan malt and moderately bitter hay flavor. Very nice - not too sweet.
