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.

2nd July 2012
On tap at the Rake. Opaque black beer, little tan head. Smooth softish palate, creamy and a little dry. Very mild carbonation. Smooth dark malt. A little repressed red fruits and mild bubblegum. Finishes soft and dry. Overall quite a smooth and sweet beer.

Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2012
Keg at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Pours black-brown with a sturdy, beige foam head. Burnt malt nose with hints of toffee. Medium sweet flavor with cocoa, hints of booze, caramel and rubber. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly alcoholic with toasty sugars, light roast, cocoa and dark cherries. Not bad. And I don’t think the condition was optimal in this instance. Would like to try again.

Tap at the Half Pint, Manhattan - 01/3/12. Mid black in colouration - brown hues around edges with half a finger of light brown head. Roasted sweet malts, a little coffee, sweet aromas although I couldn’t pick out maple. Sweetish tasting stout, a little chocolate, tofee, buttery. Medium bodied, easy on the throat. Average porter.

3.6
mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is dominated by maple, slight smoked malt and considerable sweetness, though not overbearing. Flavour definitely brings out rich maple upfront, but without a lopsided, cloying sweetness as I was expecting. Smooth, light-body with a big maple finish. Very enjoyable.
