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.

Bottle. Poured dark reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt and maple aroma. Medium body and smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer is better then my expectations.

Ughsmash (7172) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, deeper garnet with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet maple and nutty notes, with accents of salt and molasses.. lightly detergenty. The flavor found a heavy dose of maple throughout, with prickly roasty notes, charred earth, and nutty notes around.. finished a touch scratchy, with residual roast and bitterness. Medium-bodied and slow-ish through the palate.. filling carbonation.. OK feel. This was aiight.

DuffMan (6967) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Medium brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet nutty chocolate and male cookies. So sweet, I dreaded the first sip, fearing extract flavours. But happily I was wrong. This is certainly a sweet porter, but in a balanced way, with dry roast in good proportion to the maple and nut flavours. Very nice actually. On a side note-- I recall being put off by the aroma of Sam Adams’ Cherry Wheat, but being similarly surprised at the balanced palate. These guys know what they’re doing.
