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.

Poured black with a dark cream head. Smell is lightly sweet maple and coffee. Taste is coffee with maple hovering around the tongue never fully committing. A little malty with a molasses flavor, the pecan flavor is not very noticeable. The consistency is creamy. Really good beer.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a non transparent light black with visible through and through with dark maroon shading when held to a light source, creamy tan head roughly 2mm thick atop the liquid surface that laced nicely. Aroma of midgrade coffee, some maple, and some maple. Hits the mouth with a high medium, maple tastes kinda burnt, malt is firm, nutty sensations in the middle finishing with some cream and a slight note of molasses. Ok.

From bottle. Aroma is syrup and coffee. Reddish brown with thin khaki head. Taste is syrup, coffee and chocolate at end. A little thin on palate. Overall ok.

bubbleflubber (1712) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours a mahogany-amber into the glass, with a wispy eggshell head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is of definite maple and brown sugar. Flavors of maple abound, brown sugar, molasses, some nuttiness, nut skins and candied pecans to the effervescent finish. Almost like an Imperial Nut Brown, there are lots of contingencies at work here, very substantive and full-bodied on the palate, yet a sweetly smooth mouthfeel keeps everything quite drinkable and luscious. Nice offering from the norm here. Good brew, especially for sweet malty nut brown fans!

12fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Dark amber brown with a lingering one-finger tan head. Aroma is maple syrup and coffee. Initial flavor is maple syrup followed by coffee. The finish is modest pecan and lingering chocolate. Complex, interesting brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Campy877 (154) - Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark auburn color with a thick muddy head. Aroma of roasted malt and maple syrup. Taste is typical porter but with the expected sweetness from the maple and slight nuttiness from the pecan. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rdixon77 (451) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Sweet and syrupy but not bad from sam. Dark brown red pour. Heavy malts and maple syrup in the nose. Taste adds some toffee and even more sweetness. Not too much nuttiness. Pretty thick mouthfeel.

EyeAmBaldman (124) - Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a translucent dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is very nutty. The maple flavor comes through so well in this beer. Drinks well with chocolate or caramel desserts. Would be nice to get this in something other than a combo pack. Good beer.

1/31/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Admittedly enjoyed on the warm side. Oh well, wish they had these 12pks cold at Publix. Deep brown pour, clear ruby red under a light, with a big tan head that sticks around and laces surprisingly well. They aren’t lying, maple and nuttiness jumps put in the aroma straightaway, and surprisingly not too overwhelming or fake smelling. Touches of doughiness and caramel as well. More balanced flavor, the maple and nuttiness is there, but more roast pulls through to balance out the sweetness of the syrup. Plenty of doughiness and caramel as well. Surprisingly tasty. Lingers a touch syrupy on the lips and palate.
