This porter is pretty good. Taste is caramel and roasted malts. I do not detect much maple in this brew but the pour is a nice dark color.

Poured from bottle. Maple and pecan dominate aroma, with a hint of licorice. Dark mahogany with tan head. Flavors of burnt malt and root beer with the maple and porter in back. Thankfully the maple porter is not overwhelming. Hints of coffee and brownie as well. Pretty good.

Big maple aroma and taste with faint roasted malt and nuttiness. First swig was great but the cloying sweetness was overwhelming by the end.

Bottle into a nonic pint. Pours a crystal clear brown with a tan head. Smells of roasty malts with a hint of maple. Medium mouthfeel. Tastes of sweet malt, with earthy nuts on the front end and maple on the back, but with a bit of an off finish. Pretty good porter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
