From the 1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle. The label gives dual credit to the Woodstock Inn Brewery and Shipyard Brewing in Portland, Maine. Shipyard may brew this under contract. Sampled on April 11, 2009.
A - The pour is like the color of pure maple syrup but not as thick. It was a dark brown with hints of ruby red and adequate clarity. It was not as dark as most Porters. There was a short-lived beige head and lacing.
S - The malts are the first sensation in the nose and despite being brewed with maple syrup, there is little in the aroma that suggests that. It's there, but more in the background.
T/M - Fairly average mouthfeel but not quite as heavy as the typical Porter. The primary flavor starts bitter and sour (tart maybe) with the secondary taste being somewhat hopped. The sugar in the maple syrup must have burned off during the fermentation to give that extra boost of alcohol. But the maple tends to creep up on you after a few sips. Eh, it wasn't bad but it didn't blow me away.

This brew poured a deep mahogany color with a creamy tan head that lasted the duration. The sweet smell of the maple season, fills the nose with great pleasure. The hop aroma is light, could have been a little better. The maple is the king of this brew. The robust malts mixed very nicely with the maple. I can not wait to brew up one of my own brews with maple sap and no water.
