Absolutely sweet and creamy goodness.

This is a dessert beer at its finest.

Let it warm up a bit and enjoy with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.

This was given to me in a variety pack as a gift and I wish I could find it in 6 packs or 12 packs.

Cheers to Sam Adams on another great idea !

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Color: Blackish brown, with ruby hues. Impressive creamy 2 finger head with good retention and beautiful lacing.

Smell: Uh oh, this one's trouble. Dark chocolate, coffee, a little cream, just a touch of dark fruits, slight char, and pecan flippin' pie! Georgia boy is happy.

Taste: Typical, yet powerful, Porter flavors of dark chocolate and coffee up front. Midway, the Pecan Pie pops out pretty aggressively and is followed by a little bit of smokiness, dark fruits, and light dark chocolate bitterness. Excellent balance.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with nice crisp carbonation. Finish leaves a slightly sticky, yet dry, sweetness behind.

Overall: If you love Porters and have a sweet tooth, this one is for you. Part of me is really scared that Sam Adams may stop making this beer. I only had one bottle and have craved a second ever since. This would never leave my refrigerator if it were available in 6 packs.

Poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Pours a clear darker shade of copper with a thick, light tan head that dissipates slowly. Some lacing retreats down the side of the glass with the head. The are aromas of bready malts and very nutty from the pecans. The pecan smell is more intense here than in some other pecan ales I've sampled in the past. There are also hints of coffee and maple in the nose. Like in the nose, the flavor is very pecan forward and the malts are bready. There are those hints of coffee and maple as well, though these are not strong hints. The pecan is the star of the show here. The body is medium with light carbonation. This beer drinks very well and the finish is only slightly dry. This is an excellent beer. Samuel Adams has come out swinging with this one and hit a home run.

Bottle poured into a 14 oz tulip style glass.

I'm a big porter fan, so I was glad to see this in the Spring Thaw pack. Two bottles of Maple Pecan Porter were included.

Has a great dark brown color to it. MMM... I smell maple and pecans... two things I love.

Taste was right on the nose. Plenty of sweet maple and nutty pecan in there. I love this beer. It's up there with the many great porters I've had. I wish I could buy an entire six pack of it. (I do prefer Porters with more of a coffee note, but this is a great one without it)

I'm a big fan of this beer and would love to see it hit their normal lineup. Not sure if it's going to be a seasonal or rotator.
