Part of the Spring Brews variety pack. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a garnet red color, translucent, with a thin frothy beige head.

Smell is a faint sweet maple syrup aroma.

Taste is a sweet maple, coffee and chocolate flavor up front, with a mild bitter nutty finish

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly cloying.

Overall a decent porter. Not sure it's great spring selection. IT would be tasty at Thanksgiving, or as a winter ale.

Found this in my basement. Don't know how it got there or how long it's been there. Thanks for that you, whoever you are.

Clear ruby brown with a thin beige head. Smells like maple, roast malt and pecan. Tastewise there's not much porter in the maple pecan porter. I get the pecan and a nice, mildly smokey maple sweet finish. I'd like a bolder, roastier porter base though.

Sorta gimmicky, this is bordering on Sea Dog territory.

Pours a very dark brown that lets some light through and a thick, creamy tan head.

The smell is Maple syrup and nutty Pecan... a little roasted coffee on the nose as well. Smells like Pecan Pie with a cup of coffee!

The taste starts with a nutty, chocolate, and roasted coffee bitterness followed by the sweet maple syrup. A little hint of vanilla there too on the back. Very delicious.! I thought the flavors intensified beautifully as it warmed... they were somewhat muted straight out of the fridge, porters and stouts should always be warmed a bit in my opinion.

I was impressed by this Sam Adams offering.. I only wish it were available in six packs as I would by it often during the season.
