12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a deep mahogany color with reddish undertones. A tall tan head sits for a good couple of minutes before dissipating into a quarter inch thick and leaving some sticky lacing along the way.

Smell is of maple syrup, pecans, mocha, and sweet malt.

Taste of nice roasted malt up front with some brown sugar, maple syrup and pecans to follow, much like a pecan pie. Finish is a bit of mocha, very slight bitterness, and some smokiness as well. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich.

Overall, a very tasty porter when you are in the mood for something a bit on the sweet side.

Appearance nice and dark, little to no head or foam afloat.
Smells like a decent porter, faint, faint maple aroma. It is a fine touch. I am a fan of porters and stouts so this particular samuel adams has an advantage. It tastes wonderful. Again, the maple and pecan is quite faint in the taste, almost just a cane sugar note or something like this. Overall I rate this a 4.00

Slightly less than OK. I got it as part of a mixed seasonal 12- pack (I'm a sucker for mixed 12-packs to try out a few of a breweries' different offerings) , otherwise I tend to stick to IPA's and other hoppy types without really trying a broader range of a brewer's styles. So while I normally retch at the thought of a pecan/maple flavor beer, I tried it anyway. It turned out as bad as I had feared, with the taste being an artificial-flavor rendition of maple and (lesser) pecan. Turrible from Sam Adams. I still enjoy several of their other less bizarre flavors. It's very possible that I just don't appreciate this style of beer.
