Notes / Commercial Description:
Maple-Kissed Wheat Porter is a medium-bodied porter that tastes amazingly smooth and velvety. The rich and creamy mouthfeel is a result of the wheat used in the brewing process. Local maple syrup gives this beer just a hint of palate-pleasing sweetness as well as a nice depth of flavor.

We call this beer “maple-kissed” because we use just the right balance of maple syrup to impart a delicious flavor without the beer becoming sweet.

Dark brown, nearly black. No light shines through. Small head, particularly for a "wheat" beer. Oddly, little lace that lasts.

The aroma is dark and chocolatey (semisweet). Fairly straight forward porter smells--mostly the aforementioned chocolate and a touch of coffee (not quite mocha).

Relatively thin body and taste. Lots of carbonation. In the swallow, I get some sourness and no wheat. There's a burnt bread finish with a solid bitter hop spice. I don't get any of the maple syrup flavor (it's dry but still no distinctive maple characteristics). Short aftertaste of nearly burnt toast and straight up bitter hop.

Way too sweet....not a drinkable Porter. Next to no hoppiness. Yuk
