On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).

Nice opaque near black body but almost no head.

Excellent aroma is fairly complex but moderately, at most, strong.
Hints of maple here unfortunately only appear in the taste as vague sweet notes. Mildly sweet but enough to make this seem best as a dessert or after dinner beer.

Near full body with medium (slightly too high?) carbonation.

Served in a shaker pint glass at McGee's.

This close to DePaul, my mind immediately thought of the Virgin Mary brewing up a nice porter in her small Middle Eastern kitchen. I've gotta get out more (...or less...). This stuff pours a clear burnt sienna topped by a half-finger of cream foam. The nose comprises caramel, light candied orange peel, dry maple syrup, dried honey, and vague sense of dark-ish fruits in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with that fruitiness being joined by some mild sourdough, a combination that's not exactly endearing to my tongue. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a weak little "porter", one that just doesn't work for me. It's the fruitiness, really; it's too out of place here and sticks out too far to be of any help.
