Pie like aroma that is very sweet. Taste is also very sweet. Pie, sugar and pecans come to mind. Slight metallic taste here and there. Sweetness really lingers. Couldn’t drink many of these because they are too sweet. Medium mouth. If you want a beer that tastes like a pie, this is it. LKT1983 (112) - Benton, Kentucky, USA - APR 3, 2013
One of the finest brews I’ve had in a long time. Great nose, even better finish with the pecan, the maple flavor was just right, not overpowering. Winner of 1st place overall at our "Beer Fest II" sampling party in February. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2013
Strong sweet malt aroma with a light amount of maple. Dark amber color with a small but lasting tan head. Sweet beginning with a quick bitter middle getting sweet again. Gachupines (1252) - USA - APR 3, 2013
Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is similar to sweetened coffee. Flavor is sweet maple syrup with a roasted coffee back. Very slight not of toasted pecans. Maybe a little light in body, but overall pretty solid. junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Not much maple on the nose and only slightly in flavour. There is a hint of roasted pecan. They need to re-work this one a tad bit. Much potential here.

It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was of light roast, maple, some pecans and a touch of vanilla. The taste was pretty much the same with roastiness and some maple added. It had a subtle pecan flavor and was thin on the palate as well. wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into Samuel Adams glass.
Aroma: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet maple syrup. This stuff smells like Aunt Jemima’s. It smells like pancakes, breakfast, and chocolate.
Appearance: Almost opaque, superdark brown / ruby.
Taste: Mmmmmmmmmmmm breakfast in a glass. Starts out with nice roasty malts, and then finishes up with that sweet maple syrup that balances with the pecans. Delicious!
Palate: Medium body. Flavor lasts for a bit on the back of the tongue.
Overall: Please, please, please release this in six packs. It is fantastic!! I could drink this stuff for breakfast. I could use this in some pancake batter recipes and make some killer pancakes. Cybercat (5841) - Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a dark, barely translucent chocolate brown with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma has a definite overtone of maple syrup, plus subtle roast malt and nutty tones. Delightful flavor has roast malt, maple syrup, earthy and subtle coffee notes, a hint of chocolate, a hint of molasses. Texture, though fizzy, lacks thickness. Overall, rather nice.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark brown with a half finger of off white head. Aroma of maple and roasty nuts with a little coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is medium sweet. Roasty coffee and nuts with loads of maple syrup. Full bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, really great. I would take this in a 6pkdifferent any day. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2013
reddish brown pour with a quick thin tan head. aroma is cola like caramel. Light nutty pecan sweetness. some toasted malt.
Flavour is relatively sweet, maple syrupy, pecan pie, again toasted nutty maltiness. Some nutty bitterness in the finish. Thin body and overly sweet middle detracts from this not quite porter for me.
