Notes/Commercial Description:
Maple-Kissed Wheat Porter is a medium-bodied porter that tastes amazingly smooth and velvety. The rich and creamy mouthfeel is a result of the wheat used in the brewing process. Local maple syrup gives this beer just a hint of palate-pleasing sweetness as well as a nice depth of flavor.

We call this beer “maple-kissed” because we use just the right balance of maple syrup to impart a delicious flavor without the beer becoming sweet.

First had: on tap at Throwback

The name sounded promising anyway. Dark brown pour with a tan ringlet; no retention or lacing worth mentioning. Aroma was pretty muted: dark malts, somewhat bready, a little bit of roast. Taste was similar, roasty malts, cereal grains, maybe a touch of coffee-like bitterness. Nothing really memorable going on, and certainly nothing "maple" in the profile. I've learned that maple is a difficult thing to brew with, and it almost never gives the results your looking for. As far as this beer goes, they should probably just strike the word out of the title. Thin mouthfeel, on the lighter side of medium-bodied. Not much else to say.
