4.59/5  rDev +26.8%
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.

A – Pretty dark, but translucent brown. Mocha head disappears quickly and leaves very thin and light lacing.

S – All the goodness of a good porter. Nice lightly roasted malts, add in sweet maple and nutty notes. Not too sweet, does smell a touch artificial though.

T – Dry roasted malts, the nuttiness comes through on the finish, and there is some sweet maple goodness.

M – Somewhat thin, and overcarbed. Makes for a quite dry experience. Would be better with some more body to it.

O – Not bad. An interesting idea. It is a little light, and has a lingering but not unpleasant sweet aftertaste. Glad I got to try it, but I won't seek it out in the future.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark red/black with a small off white head. Smells of some coffee, but it almost smells if maple syrup was dumped in the beer, but it doesn't ruin it. Tastes initially of coffee very strongly, then finishes very nicely with the maple syrup, very nice contrast and balance. Beer is very lightly carbonated, and for a medium body, goes down nicely and could possibly be sessionable. Overall a very good beer.

Poured from a bottle into a Sma Adams glass.

Appearance: Dark reddish brown color, with a thin off white head. No lacing left, and head went away quickly. Had the carbonation of a soda.

Smell: Not a strong smelling brew, some hints of roasted malts and maybe coffee??

Mothfeel/Taste: Smooth and medium bodied, yet watery. Taste of roasted malts and grain mostly, some nutty qualities. But now maple or pecan to really speak of.

Overall: I was really hopeing this beer would be better, but I am a little disappointed at Sam Adams for a lack of flavor. I will probably not buy this one again.
