3.93/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: VONS in Grantville, Calif. (San Diego), on Jan. 3, 2013
Price: $13.97 w/ card ($17.99 regular) for the Spring Thaw Variety 12-pack
Misc.: Label said to enjoy before June

Poured a very dark brown color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head that initially lasted for a long while. Minimal lacing on the sides. OK retention, but nothing extraordinary.

Smelled maple syrup, pecan (not just because of the name), caramel, honey and roasted walnuts.

Tasted similar to the nose with maple syrup dominating. Also got pecan, toffee, honey and roasted walnuts. Slight bitter notes of coffee and chocolate, but not overwhelming.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft (below average)-to-average carbonation. Surprisingly abrupt finish.

A nice change of pace. Certainly good and I’d definitely have it again.

Appearance nice and dark, little to no head or foam afloat.
Smells like a decent porter, faint, faint maple aroma. It is a fine touch. I am a fan of porters and stouts so this particular samuel adams has an advantage. It tastes wonderful. Again, the maple and pecan is quite faint in the taste, almost just a cane sugar note or something like this. Overall I rate this a 4.00

Slightly less than OK. I got it as part of a mixed seasonal 12- pack (I'm a sucker for mixed 12-packs to try out a few of a breweries' different offerings) , otherwise I tend to stick to IPA's and other hoppy types without really trying a broader range of a brewer's styles. So while I normally retch at the thought of a pecan/maple flavor beer, I tried it anyway. It turned out as bad as I had feared, with the taste being an artificial-flavor rendition of maple and (lesser) pecan. Turrible from Sam Adams. I still enjoy several of their other less bizarre flavors. It's very possible that I just don't appreciate this style of beer.

3.59/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Color- dark brown with ruby tint. Head- mocha creamy medium head.

Aroma- complex including maple syrup, pecan pie, and hint of coffee.

Taste- Starts fairly sweet with maple syrup dominating, has good porter characteristics including deep roasted malt and touches of coffee and smoke, finishing with a lingering charcoal and pie taste. Like a pecan pie with a cup of espresso on the side.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted March 2013.
