I poured a cold growler into a pint glass after picking up some growlers for sunday football.
The beer pours a deep mahogany with rich garnet highlights. Beige head of about 1 cm foams up and sticks around for a little bit.
The maple aroma is HUGE right on the pour. Lots of maple dominates the nose, like syrup on pancakes in the morning. I dont get any roasted malt or chocolate like I expect from a porter, but the maple is there and its appealing.
Firsts sip reveals a smooth textured average body with fine yet tingly carbonation.
Flavor is maple right away, not sweet maple, but more of the rich deep character from real maple syrup. I dont get too much malt quality here, maybe a little roasted notes but this is a maple beer through and through.
No hints of booze and I dont find hops in there either.
It is a very drinkable beer and the maple is good, not just a sweetner.
I would like to see a little more complexity on the beer but I do enjoy drinking this one. Some roast or chocolate or some other porter notes would balance the beer a little. A good one, but dont expect a typical porter going into the beer.
Serving type: growler
