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.

Sampled tonight on 4/26/14. Had this before but that was back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a Sam Adam's pilsner glass.
Pours a deep rich ruby red-brown in color with a very thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is of roasted malts, toffee, maple syrup and nuts. The taste is about the same with slightly more aroma of the above ingredients that the actual taste. Still great flavor for sure. Perfect carbonation for the type. No harsh or bitter aftertaste is noted.
