Appearance - poured silky black with a decent 1/2" head

Smell - sweet hints of maple syrup come through in the aroma.

Taste - the smell of maple syrup had an excellent follow through in the taste. Sweet but not to sweet.

Mouthfeel - the aftertaste of the maple syrup ligers slightly and the cheewiness of porter comes through after the sweetness.

Overall - the was a very good maple porter. Definite taste of maple in this beer, unlike other maple porters I've had in the past. Probably only negative was the twist off top.

Pours a clear brown with amber tones and a thin head and some lace. The aroma is of brown sugar and maple and notmuch else. The flavor begins with a root beer and molasses flavor with the maple syrup showing on the tongue in the finish. The maple grows stronger as it warms but fades rapidly. It's mouthfeel is light-medium. Woodstock Kanc Country Maple Porter is an okay beer, thin for a porter but okay. Slightly recommended.

Poured into a pint glass. The color is very dark amber. There is a large fluffy bubbly tan head that leaves behind a lot of sticky lacing.

The aroma has a good amount of sweet maple. There is a slight hint of spicy hops.

The taste is light in flavor and straight forward. There is just a soft touch of bitterness to keep this from being overly sweet. Notes of maple and chocolate are noted. This is not a roast-driven porter.

This is light to medium bodied. Nice sharp carbonation.

This isn't too bad. The price is definitely right. Still, I do prefer a bit more bitterness.

22 oz bottle with gold foil around the neck. Poured into a pint glass.

A - Dark brown clear body with a four finger high light khaki head. Pours with an almost cascading nitrogen effect. Some moderate lacing.

S - Nutty malts, caramel, sweet maple, and some hard minerals.

T - Similar to the nose. Nutty malts with a bit of maple sweetness. Some roasty bitterness in the finish that comes off mineraly and unpleasant. Watery and thin mouth feel with quite a bit of carbonation.

O - Ehhh. A boring porter with some decent maple flavors but an unpleasant mineral element happening. Not horrible, but I wouldn't seek this beer again.
