On tap at the brewery. Dark brown in color with a small khaki head. The aroma has caramel, milk chocolate, and maple syrup. Smells really nice. Excellent flavor with notes of burnt sugar, maple, and chocolate with just the right sweetness level. Just a touch of coffee. More chocolatey and less roasty than the oatmeal stout.  Dry finish with medium body and average carbonation level. Very good stuff, another winner from Wedge.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 On tap at wedge... Pours a dull deeper murky dark brown and topped with a minimal thin wispy barely off-white head... Maple and dark rooted caramel and toffee. Lacking in a sense... Dull roast, sweeter caramel, and maple notes throughout. Lightly roasty bitter finish. Medium sweetness from start to finish. Body is somewhat thin with light carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of carob and sweet candy sugar. Flavor of maple, roasted malt, carob, and sweet brown sugar. Interesting take on a porter and though it sounds a little scary, was plenty drinkable. 6/4/7/4/14 [3.5/5]

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2010
On draught at the brewery, it pours the deepest mahogany with ruby fringes, a tan ring head that leaves spiderweb lace. The nose is malty with hints of grain. The flavors are of caramel toasted malt, roasts, esters and finishing with lightly roasted grains. The mouthfeel is light, with a round body and smooth palate. Subtle, soft carbonation activated with fruity esters and some maple syrup. Decent take on the porter here.
