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.

From 05/22/14 notes. Had this on tap at The Waterfront Alehouse on 2nd Ave. in NYC. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one to two inches of light tan head and low carbonation evident. Looks thick.

s - Smells of maple, roasted malts, syrupy sweet chocolate and sugar, pecans, burnt malts, and toasted malts. Light smoke. Decent nose, some definite maple up front.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, maple syrup, light nuts, toasted malts, light smoke, chocolate, toffee, and some sugar. A step up from the nose, not too sweet.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Thick and smooth, syrupy.

o - Overall a decent maple porter. Taste is pretty nice and it is easy to drin. Worth checking out once.

12 ounce bottle, best before May 2014. Got this bottle from a friend last weekend. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a dark ruby red/brown color with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and sweet, it smells like maple, nuts/pecans, and roasted malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some caramel, chocolate, coffee and a bit of smokiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit syrupy and creamy with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, and if you like sweeter tasting beers then I would recommend it.
