COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of the Beer Lovers Choice 2011.

Samuel Adams is bringing you Maple Pecan Porter. A nutty syrupy porter that just reeks of New England.
Sweet New England maple syrup and a distinct pecan note define this balanced porter. The roasted character of our blend of malts complements the maple sweetness with hints of coffee and chocolate. Reddish-black in color, this full-bodied brew has a sweet and slightly nutty finish.

mjg74 (3078) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle from Walmart. Nose is sweet and roasty. Some nutiness and coffee. Roasty up front with some nutty/coffee qualities. Almost a woody taste to it. Slight aftertaste of syrup lingers on the back of the tongue, Somewhat dry and bitter. Decent porter.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
As part of the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Clear brown, loose beige head. Pretty faint aroma - some coffee, I guess. I dunno, maybe a served it too cold. Flavor is a good deal of maple, with notes of nuts and coffee. It actually tastes a lot like that maple candy that everybodys grandmother used to keep around...

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2013
The aroma is definitely nice with toasted malt, maple, nuts, chocolate, and coffee but rather weak. The appearance is brown with a small head. The taste is a little like the aroma with an astringent bitterness. The palate is smooth. Overall its nice but not great. If only it tasted more like the aroma!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nutty brown color with a small egg shell head. Nose is thick maple syrup, maple candys, light toffee. Palate is sticky, clingy, coats the molars, thick. Flavors of maple syrup, sugar, toffee, caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scarletfire65 (1423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle from Spring Variety Pack. Deep brown pour with amber highlights. Aroma of nutty toasted pecans, maple syrup, root beer, burnt sugar. The flavors mirror the nose, with some black coffee, charcoal, and woody hops also present. Nicely balanced - sweet maple on the finish, but not cloying at all. Good job, but not sure I would call it a Spring Seasonal (even though it was released in January). Should have waited for fall.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours a dark cola brown with some ruby red on the edges with a thin light tan head. The aroma is full of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and a slight nuttiness. The taste is roasty with some smokiness, chocolate and sweet in the finish, there is some nuttiness but not much and if there is maple syrup its only adding to the sweetness not so much the flavor. Overall this is a tasty brew, I wont mind drinking a couple of these.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle from the Spring sampler. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of maple. nutty notes, bitter coffee, faint hops. The taste is roasted malts, maple, bitter coffee, burnt sugar, bitter hops. Medium bodied. Decent.

BucannonXC5 (1612) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass From: VONS in Grantville, Calif. (San Diego) Price: $13.97 w/ card ($17.99 regular) for the Spring Thaw Variety 12-pack Misc.: Label said to enjoy before June Poured a very dark brown color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head that initially lasted for a long while. Minimal lacing on the sides. OK retention, but nothing extraordinary. Smelled maple syrup, pecan (not just because of the name), caramel, honey and roasted walnuts. Tasted similar to the nose with maple syrup dominating. Also got pecan, toffee, honey and roasted walnuts. Slight bitter notes of coffee and chocolate, but not overwhelming. Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft (below average)-to-average carbonation. Surprisingly abrupt finish. A nice change of pace. Certainly good and Id definitely have it again.

Pours dark brown topped with a thin light brown foam. Aroma is strong with nuts and chocolate. Taste is nutty and heavy with maple. This beer does not disappoint. Worth buying the sampler to try this one.
