COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mary Wiles joined our brewery team after spending 30 years brewing and doing quality control for a Very, Very Big Brewer. Mary evolved into a craft beer brewer, and now she’s doing our quality control, having fun while helping us make sure that Brooklyn beers are tasting great and ready to make you happy. But Mary has a bright thing lurking in her past, present and future – Mary has maple trees. A lot of maple trees. Actually, a ridiculous number of maple trees, acres of them, right northwest of us in upstate New York. And her family farm makes 100% real New York State maple syrup.

Real maple syrup tastes great on pancakes and waffles, but it’s awfully good in beer too. Porter is a classic British ale style that traveled to the United States, sustained George Washington during the Revolution, and later built London’s great breweries. Mary’s Maple Porter is a rich, dark ale featuring a large portion of her maple syrup in the kettle. After fermentation by our house ale yeast, the syrup is no longer sweet (yeast likes to eat maple syrup too), but the maple flavor shows through in a complex interplay with caramel, chocolate, and cof fee flavors from our blend of roasted malts. An earthy hop note rounds it all out.

DiarmaidBHK (5881) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Draft at mad mex shady side. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Slight sugar note on the nose. Bigger maple notes on the nose but it’s a little cloying for my taste.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land
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.

_angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2012
Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whisky 2012. Pours hazy dark brown, almost black, with a small frothy beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while quickly dissipating. Smell is sweet and malty with sweet dark bread, milk chocolate, toasted malts, maple syrup, wood, sweet liquorice candy and hints of acetone. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and malty with sweet dark bread, lemon zest, wood, maple syrup, burnt cokkies, bitter chocolate, sweetened coffee and roasted malts. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent, tiny watery and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, maple syrup, wood, lemon zest and hints of hay. Nah...

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2012
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 (8268) - 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.
