Quite possibly the best thing Sam Adam's has ever made. Sweet, syrupy and thick with heavy hints of maple syrup, meaty smoke, malts, almond, marzipan and touches of coffee and chocolate. Definitely want to drink this one when you're cold.

I thought this was a great porter. I appreciate drier more roasted porters with more hops. I can also appreciate a sweeter porter like this one. The maple syrup is easy to detect. This would be a great desert porter.

Best by date of 09.02.2014.
Pored from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 02.04.14.

A: Black/red. Some see through. Tan head.

S: Caramel mostly, also coffee, chocolate, toffee.

T: Caramel, coffee, toffee are dominant. Pecan, chocolate, maple are there too.

M: Creamy. Very light feeling in the mouth.

O: This is like having a maple bar in drinkable form. It has maple syrup in it, according to the label, and you can tell. There's quite a bit of complexity too. This is a great porter.
