Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA. Anyway, it has a very dark brown color with a thick off-white head and a roasted malt smell. Taste is also of the roasted malts and finishes with a smooth crispness. Overall a very good porter, but I could not taste the maple. Oh well, maybe next time...
