Pours a deep black with a thick body and a nose of light pecan and faint maple. Flavor is semi-assertive maple with pecan bits. Oily on the tongue. Not bad.

On tap at Garage Bar (Louisville). Aroma of chocolate, caramel, light smoke and some maple. Appearance was black with mocha head. Flavor matched the nose; pretty sweet overall, with a little smokiness in the finish. Palate was bubbly. Decent. PorterPounder (8356) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Medium black pour, off-white head. Aroma has some coffee accents, just a hint of smoke and maple syrup. Flavor has some maple syrup accents, a bit of smokiness, a touch of licorice and potting soil. Not quite as thick and flavorful as I thought it would be. harrystrill (95) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
