Big aroma: nutty, sweet, burnt malt and pecans.
Flavor is sweet, roasty and burnt. Bebum (1056) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Amber color, clear on inspection, tall very lasting head little lacing.
Characterful nose, nutty.
Full body, flavorful, bright mouthfeel, avg length.
Very bitter, particularly in the finish, but also malty,
Delicious, quality coffee flavor stands out at the attack and continues throughout, followed by nutty, roasty and yeasty tastes.

This a very good porter! Has got a flavor full of chocolate/coffee along with the sweet syrup and nut it turns out to be a brew of worth! Surprise to me actually catface5326 (154) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
From a 12 ounce bottle. Smells like maple syrup. Sweet syrup taste. Overall very good beer jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a dark brown/burgundy with a creamy tan head. Nose is maple syrup and molasses. Nice and creamy on the palate. The taste is of dark roasted malt with some nuttiness, accented by a touch of molasses sweetness. Finishes fairly dry but not hoppy. A very good porter that is a good companion to brats or chicken breast off the grill.

A great porter by Sam Adams. The maple is perfect, and not overdone. There is still a nice chocolate finish. Very enjoyable beer on a cold winters day! puboflyons (3467) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration notch of June 2014. The pour is mahogany brown with a short lasting off-white head and good clarity. Looks a bit like soy sauce. The aroma is true to the title with a good note of maple and pecans along with darker malts and a bit of smoke. That might be the maple though. The body is just under medium. The taste has more of a maple character than anything else with the pecans and malts more in the background. An odd sort of bitterness. trollcat (20) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Looks nice, smells nice, tastes like dirty nasty soy sauce made in a Chinese sweatshop with sweat base.
