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.

P: Deep dark mahogany body with a cappuccino head that dissipates to a thin wake. Spotty lacing grab the sides. S: Burnt maple syrup, stale coffee, liquid smoke, and roasted candied pecans. T/M: Taste follows the nose but brings chocolate, loads of vanilla and plums. Taste is similar to kahlua. Silky medium-full body with a kiss if carbonation at the end. O: Rich and decadent concoction of maple goodness, coffee and chocolate. The nuttiness brings out the natural flavors to compliment the sweetness. Sweetness almost breaches the point of cloying but holds back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. Lots of maple and molasses on the nose flavor follows. Pretty sweet. Too much so. Overall decent.

I enjoyed this beer the most out of the 2014 Spring pack. A nice roasted profile with some nuttiness. Smooth with a darker finish.

Bebum (218) - - JAN 22, 2014
Amber color, clear on inspection, tall very lasting head little lacing. Characterful nose, nutty. Full body, flavorful, bright mouthfeel, avg length. Very bitter, particularly in the finish, but also malty, Delicious, quality coffee flavor stands out at the attack and continues throughout, followed by nutty, roasty and yeasty tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jebert (470) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a dark brown/burgundy with a creamy tan head. Nose is maple syrup and molasses. Nice and creamy on the palate. The taste is of dark roasted malt with some nuttiness, accented by a touch of molasses sweetness. Finishes fairly dry but not hoppy. A very good porter that is a good companion to brats or chicken breast off the grill.

A great porter by Sam Adams. The maple is perfect, and not overdone. There is still a nice chocolate finish. Very enjoyable beer on a cold winters day!
