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.

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!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration notch of June 2014. The pour is mahogany brown with a short lasting off-white head and good clarity. Looks a bit like soy sauce. The aroma is true to the title with a good note of maple and pecans along with darker malts and a bit of smoke. That might be the maple though. The body is just under medium. The taste has more of a maple character than anything else with the pecans and malts more in the background. An odd sort of bitterness.

Looks nice, smells nice, tastes like dirty nasty soy sauce made in a Chinese sweatshop with sweat base.

johnnyoski (431) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle from Spring variety pack. Pours cola brown with a frothy, tan head. Sweet malts, caramel, chocolate and nutty aroma. Initial flavor is bittersweet cocoa with a nutty dryness. The maple flavor really comes out in the finish and lingers nicely on your lips. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Might be a little too sweet for some folks but this is quite tasty.

12oz bottle from the Spring Mix pack, again, in freaking December, but I regress. Pours a very dark brown with a thick tan head, aroma is very nutty and sweet with quite a bit of caramel, the flavor has a lot of toffee on the front end with the maple coming through in the finish, quite a bit actually, a little bit of chocolate as well, actually not all that bad.

Thin, but better than I expected. Pours cola brown a tiny white head that disappears instantly. It’s OK. Smells nice.
