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.

29 IBU

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.

Thanks Rochefort10NH!

A - Deep, dark brown in color, this porter is near black. A vigorous pour creates a frothy khaki head above the beer which settles rather rapidly leaving trace patterns of lace on the glass.

S - I'm cautious to use the word sour here, but there's almost a touch of sourdough bread and sour mash to the nose. It strikes me as odd, but the beer otherwise has a delicious light smokiness and touch of maple syrup gently surrounding the moderately roasted malts.

T - Maple seems entirely fermented out leaving no trace flavors behind, at least none that contend with a lightly smoky and bitter chocolate roasted malt flavor. Astringent singed wheat bread and earthy herbal hops trail off on the back end.

M - Medium-light bodied, this beer feels more like a dark wheat ale here, somewhat soft on the tongue with an effervescence that ushers in a roasted bitterness and dry profile on the finish.

O - Throwback's Maple-Kissed Wheat Porter encourages delicate smoked wood notes to develop around a roasted malt body but the somewhat thin feel suggests a wheat beer with dark malts and a splash of maple syrup that's been fermented out. The beer in the bottle doesn't sell me on the name, but I'm not about to pour it out either.
