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.

Pour from a fresh growler into a tulip glass. Dark brown bordering on black body. Creamy light mocha head. Solid lacing. Smell is coffee, milk chocolate, and some light maple syrup. Taste follows the nose. Light roasted bitterness. Mouth feel is light to medium with decent carbonation. A solid maple porter. Easy drinking and tasty.

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.

I do love throwback brewery but I found myself really searching for flavors based on the name.

There is a really nice scent and after a couple sips I slightly tasted the maple but it wasn't as profound as I expected.

However, it is still a decent stout!
