Sweet robust maple and malt aroma. Dark brown color with a large brown head. Moderate sweet maple flavor with hints of bitterness in the finish. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2012
draft at the gingerman poured a brown in color with a thin covering of head. aroma has light maple, sweet malt, and mild roast. mouth feel is on the lighter side and the carbonation low. the porter itself is just alright and falls a bit short in character so the maple is the saver here and that does not contribute much either. just an alright porter for me.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours dark brown with a thin creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of brown sugar, maple. The taste is tart malts, maple, nuts, green banana. Medium bodied. A little weird and not what I was expecting or hoping for. italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Dark brownish/black pour thin beige head .... aroma is lightly roasted with some sweet maple aspects ..... taste is smooth and sweet with maple syrup and roasted porter qualities but not much else .... mouthfeel is thin with the finish is roasted and lingering maple .... abv is hidden well maple saves this from being a bland boring porter Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter.
Pours a moderately-dark brown color with a thin off-white head. The nose carries a bit of maple as well as a bit of malt. Some roast and sweetness. Flavor has a touch of maple and some underlying porter notes. Medium body with slight chewiness and just a bit of sweetness. Maple is not terribly pronounced. Okay, but a bit wanting.
