We brewed our Nickel Brook Maple Porter to be first and foremost, a robust and full bodied porter, using premium roasted and pale malts. We then infuse pure, dark Canadian maple syrup into the brewing process, so the maple essence becomes integrated during fermentation. The result is a truly wonderful and complex mixture of roast you desire in a robust porter, with background hints of maple flavour and aroma.No additive or preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, creamy finish.Nickel Brook Maple Porter is a unique Canadian interpretation of a timeless classic!

Tessic's rating

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
Tessic (1111) - Brantford, Ontario, - SEP 20, 2012
This porter poured a deep brown colour with a lacking, soapy head. Even after a vigorous pour... very little head. To the nose nose there are scents of molassass, light smoke, Melloids cough candies and brown sugar. First sip had a thin mouthfeel with flavours of smoke, burnt malt and spoiled maple. Finish is sweet and smokey. This is like most Nickel Brook beer, seriously lacking.

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Pours a very thick amount of creamy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance. Leaves a thin layer. Nick dirty lacing. Aromas are mainly toasty and nutty malts with a bit of spiced hops, not much else. Flavours of sweets, like caramel, toffee and the ever present maple, but not too overpowering, making it well blended and balanced. Fairly mild overall, not much bitterness. Some nuttiness in the mix. Mouthfeel is pretty slick and has a slightly warming sensation. Smoothness on the palate and real easy going down. Overall, not as much punch as expected with the maple taking somewhat of a backseat. Still pretty damn good.

W aromacie dominujący syrop klonowy, skrka razowego chleba i mid. W smaku jednak wodniste, płytkie, karmelowe. Goryczka niska.

Panzuriel (2076) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Location: 16 oz can purchased at Andersons Sawmill Appearance: Darker black brown with a fine head of brown bubbles. Nose: Coffee with a hint of maple syrup. Taste: Dark chocolate cocoa with maple, but just a hint. Body: lighter to medium without significant texture Parting thoughts: Barely a maple anything. if it wasnt on the label, itd be a bit hard to nail down that was the additional flavor.

HippyHop (609) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
Jet black pour with a big tan cap. Nose is all maple and burnt toast. Its a bit on the sweet side, a touch watery, but I still dig this stuff. Am I the only one who gets randomly itchy when I cant sleep?

flatmatt (1522) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2016
16 oz can. Pours black with a tan head. Rich creamy coffee and dark cocoa aroma, with a sweetness to it. Flavor is roasty dark cocoa and coffee with anise notes. A bit of maple in the finish, though I wouldnt pick it out without it being in the name. Pretty tasty.

16 oz can from Cappys at home. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, mild maple syrup, caramel, some ash to the finish, a bit too thin and just very average in my opinion, the Imperial Ipa was solid.

Johnsense (1501) - - MAR 27, 2016
Dark pour, frothy white head. Lighter Maple notes, dark malts in aroma. Lighter Maple sweetness gives way to ash in the taste. Thinner body than it should have.
