I was looking forward to this one. I love maple syrup. I love porters. And I love Brooklyn. Wow, was I disappointed. This is probably the worst Brooklyn beer I ever had. I guess I was looking for something on par with Intesified Coffee Stout. This is not it.

It looks great, the smell has a hit of maple, the taste is just a hodge podge; almost medicinal. I don't taske English Porter at all and the mouth feel is thin. I'm not sure it's even worth finishing the bottle. So sad.

M-low carbonation with a dry finish

O-its not disgusting but its a terrible porter. not sure how this got to production. its not even easy to drink

On cask at Pony Bar. This one was a disappointment, frankly. The mouthfeel was a bit off; too prickly and rough, particularly for cask; was hoping for something creamy and smooth, which it wasn’t. Dry finish, very little sweetness whatsoever. The maple was pretty much a no-show in the taste; perhaps a subtle hint in the aroma. The whole thing seemed a bit disharmonious to me; there wasn’t much of the roast character you’d expect in a porter, and the hops, although not overpowering, were perhaps a bit too noticeable and bitter. It just didn’t hang together all that well for my tastes. I was a bit confused by what they were going for here, to be honest. Aspects of roast, char, coffee, chocolate all are detected, but everything clashes a bit in an odd way. Was expecting something quite different and a lot tastier.

picked up a 16oz fill of this about an hour or two ago.

a - poured into my brooklyn snifter. poured a fich black with a thin cream colored almost white head. head was milky and hung out for a bit slowly bubbling away.

s - rich roasted malts with a glaze of maple. the porter char is pushed in the sweet maple direction giving it an almost milk stout smell. roasted chocolates.

t - whoa...that's interesting. the flavor seems to be a bit of an identity crisis. it is drinkable, but not good.

m - the porter char is swallowed by maple tingle.

o - overall, this is just weird. i love a good english porter, but the addition of the maple seems to push the flavors and feel in the wrong direction. i guess, this is what i should've been expecting, but a maple porter sounded so great, but in retrospect, probably not the most wonderful idea...at least not for my taste buds. i do appreciate the experimentation and will continue to support the brewmaster reserves and if you ever wondered what a maple porter would taste like, this is it...but perhaps you should second guess wondering what a maple porter would taste like...ick.

my wife seems to dig it so she'll finish this one for me.
