Visually this beer delivers: rich, chocolate-brown, and opaque, with a thick cap of tan foam topping it all off. The aroma is somewhat strange however, with dark malt, wet leather, a hint of cocoa, and a slightly sour raisin note. No sign of maple either. Medium-bodied, the flavor is dominated by a tangy, metallic taste that lingers into the finish. Bitterness emerges late into the sip, with an almost burnt flavor. Overall, I wanted a smoother, creamier porter with more character. This one needs work.

Black body and a thick creamy white head.

I found some roasty cocoa and nuttiness in the nose, unfortunately I also found something metallic and off.

The taste is the same, there are some decent porter characteristics here, but I didn't find any maple syrup. The metallic finish was off putting.

This just isn't very good beer.
