Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Pour from a fresh growler into a tulip glass. Dark brown bordering on black body. Creamy light mocha head. Solid lacing. Smell is coffee, milk chocolate, and some light maple syrup. Taste follows the nose. Light roasted bitterness. Mouth feel is light to medium with decent carbonation. A solid maple porter. Easy drinking and tasty.

a - a deep, dark brown pour - on the verge of being black... head grows as it sitts, quite interesting...fluffy, dirty, brown in color...2-3 fingers initial

s - light..some roasted malt, bit of coffee.. hint of sweetness, maybe a tad of vanilla?

t - light as well. was expecting more maple, so was a bit let down... never had a wheat porter [i don't think], so wasn't sure what to expect...

m - velvet like light to medium in body, similar to the smoked porter

o - eh... not sure... not quite what I was hoping for...

Pours a three finger khaki head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Maple and coffee nose, flavor is roasted coffee and some maple. Burnt coffee finish. Okay but not worth $9.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

thanks to straffordmilitia for this one !

poured cold from the bottle near pitch black to a founder's brewing goblet with a 1/2 finger, foamy, big bubbled head with nice retention leaving spotty lace after each sip.

aroma of dark maple syrup and candied almonds with a hint of espresso in the wayback.

molasses and bitter coffee up front fading to a sweet after. a wee bit of smoke.

medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and sweet.

overall - a very interesting porter, maybe a bit to the bitter side.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass, the beer is an extremely dark, almost black, auburn-brown coloring that pours with a ton of head. All that foam finally gets organized and settles into a half-inch of light, foamy, biege colored head. Aromas all over the place, with some maple (of course), caramel, nut, coffee and chocolate. A little hint of roast and smoke makes the aromas seem like you walked into a candy store that has caught on fire. Flavors are a little more chaotic, but blended well nonetheless. Good, smooth, creamy blend of coffee and maple sugary sweet, with a dose of smoke once again. Good flavors on a light, crisp body. The aftertaste is mostly the coffee notes, with a roasty linger. When you wait a little longer between drinks, the maple character presents itself again. The finish is a little clingy in mouth, with a slick and cloying feel to it. Great flavors and aromas in this brew.
