2.5/5 rDev -34.6%
Appearance - dark brown, nearly opaque, with a solid cinnamon colored head, typical of the style
Smell - very subdued. Mostly dark roasted malts and some maple sweetness from the syrup addition. I didn't get much smoke aroma at all, which is disappointing
Taste - initially I get some maple syrup, but that gives way to burnt flavors. The finish is extremely bitter from the charred malt.
Mouthfeel - full bodied. The intense, lingering bitterness is very unpleasant.
Overall - This beer was very disappointing. Very little smoke flavor and the bitter, charred malt was overwhelming.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep brown. Transparent at the edges. Nice off white head. Decent surface retention.
Smell - Smokey and nicely chocolatey. Pretty much it but it's nice.
Taste - Less impressive. Much smokier. Less chocolatey, but still present. Bitter in the finish from the malt.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Highly carbonated. Disappointing.
Overall - Decent flavors, nice smokiness. The body doesn't sustain the flavors though.

Pours a dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, slight smoke, slight hop, and a hint of wheat. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of coffee, hops, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of wheat, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good aroma, blend, and body. The strength of smoke in body and aroma was disappointing, as was the overall appearance.

this was good, a porter made with smoked rye malt and maple syrup. having just come from square one and having their maple stout though, i thought this was a let down. the pour is rich and chocolatey brown with an inch of mocha head. the nose is overpowered by the smoke and spice from the rye, and none of the maple really comes through. the same is also true of the flavor unfortunately, which as a smoked porter is excellent. the smoke isnt too strong, the rye is really potent, and the feel is smooth and creamy. id just like to see more maple flavor worked in with those other two big bold characters. still a tasty drink, nice this time of year. the use of rye in this is perfect, so any enthusiast of that should give this a go.
