Pours a dark brown with a foamy off white head. Smell is sweet, maple sugar, pecans surprisingly, and some malt. Taste starts sweet with maple sugar up front, pecan comes in and finishes smooth and malt. The pecan is strong in aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, could be heavier, more of a nut brown feel. Overall sweet, interesting flavor, worth checking out, not your typical porter.

Pours a dark brown with a slightly creamy beige head, slowly fading and some lacing. Aroma and taste of sweet malt, roasted caramel and some pleasant maple syrup flavor. Palate is a medium body, slightly creamy with mild carbonation and a bit sticky. Finishes with a sweet lightly roasted caramel and a bit of nutty pecan maple syrup ending. Overall a good drinking and flavorful brew.

Well, it pours a dark brown/red with a nice tan head with very nice lacing. To me it smells a little bit like teryaki Sauce. Looking past that it does carry aromas of chocolate. There is also a bit of maple, but I detect no pecan. The taste is chocolatey with some coffee, but the finish shows signs of maple syrup and pecan with a bit of wood. The hops are almost undetectable. It is a bit overly carbonated for this style of beer, but the mouthfeel definately gained some body from the addition of the maple syrup. Its good, but not great.
