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.

Presentation: Picked up a nice swingtop growler of this at the opening party. Split with a friend. I had had this on tap before as well. $14 for the growler fill.

Appearance: Dark to medium brown in color, but pours a nice medium brown, two finger head. Carbonation held up really well.

Aroma: Some semi sweet chocolate and coffee notes. A nice undertone of maple to everything.

Taste: Milk chocolate and coffee notes are the mist prominent. Definitely leans more toward sweet than bitter. A noticable, but not overpowering maple note as well. Very drinkable and interesting.

Mouthfeel: Creamy mouthfeel overall, but not too heavy. Very pleasant.

Overall, a really nice porter with a nice hint of maple. I could see this perceived as a bit too sweet by some, but I enjoyed the drinkability and flavors. I would get this again.

Sampled on February 9, 2012. It pours a dark brown with ruby red highlights around the edges as well as a nice, beige head. On the nose there is an array of flavors including dark malts, coffee grinds, yeast, and of course a touch of maple syrup. The body is nicely bold. The taste is also full of dark malts, coffee but no chocolate, and a little maple. But in the end it finishes dry.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass, the beer is an extremely dark, almost black, auburn-brown coloring that pours with a ton of head. All that foam finally gets organized and settles into a half-inch of light, foamy, biege colored head. Aromas all over the place, with some maple (of course), caramel, nut, coffee and chocolate. A little hint of roast and smoke makes the aromas seem like you walked into a candy store that has caught on fire. Flavors are a little more chaotic, but blended well nonetheless. Good, smooth, creamy blend of coffee and maple sugary sweet, with a dose of smoke once again. Good flavors on a light, crisp body. The aftertaste is mostly the coffee notes, with a roasty linger. When you wait a little longer between drinks, the maple character presents itself again. The finish is a little clingy in mouth, with a slick and cloying feel to it. Great flavors and aromas in this brew.

Pours a 3 finger tan head. Body is black with mahogany highlights.
Head retention and lacing were slightly above average.

Smell is of sweet pancake syrup and roasted caramel malts. Charred smoked malt is another aroma there. No hops or alcohol are really detected.

Taste is very smoky, full of burnt malts and charred oak. Maple and vanilla come in to counter the burnt bitterness. Hops are very light and alcohol is almost non existent.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied for a porter. Carbonation is light and head somewhat quickly dissipated. Beer finishes kinda dry and chalky, with a burnt smoky aftertaste.

Overall this beer was good, interesting flavors with the maple, burnt malt, and wheat. Something was a little off though, enjoyed drinking the beer but wasnt too anxious to find another bottle of it anytime soon.

thanks to straffordmilitia for this one !

poured cold from the bottle near pitch black to a founder's brewing goblet with a 1/2 finger, foamy, big bubbled head with nice retention leaving spotty lace after each sip.

aroma of dark maple syrup and candied almonds with a hint of espresso in the wayback.

molasses and bitter coffee up front fading to a sweet after. a wee bit of smoke.

medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and sweet.

overall - a very interesting porter, maybe a bit to the bitter side.

Pours a three finger khaki head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Maple and coffee nose, flavor is roasted coffee and some maple. Burnt coffee finish. Okay but not worth $9.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

a - a deep, dark brown pour - on the verge of being black... head grows as it sitts, quite interesting...fluffy, dirty, brown in color...2-3 fingers initial

s - light..some roasted malt, bit of coffee.. hint of sweetness, maybe a tad of vanilla?

t - light as well. was expecting more maple, so was a bit let down... never had a wheat porter [i don't think], so wasn't sure what to expect...

m - velvet like light to medium in body, similar to the smoked porter

o - eh... not sure... not quite what I was hoping for...
