Aroma is toffee, caramel, dark malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is dark malts, mild smoked malts, fruit, chocolate and the signature porter acidity found only in the great porters.

Appearance (4.5) : Very dark, with a very foamy, light-brown head. Very inviting.

Smell (5.00) : Oaty, Smoky, a hint of Sweet. This is a very complex smell but it's all tied together and made into a very simple smell. You can actually pick up on the syrup smell as well, surprisingly.

Taste (4.00) : Very dark and smoky, the maple syrup isn't very prevalent but becomes more prevalent as I drink.

Mouthfeel (4.00) : Leaves an extremely smoky flavor, I feel as though I'm inside a barbecue pit. The carbonation is also just right for this style of beer.

Overall (4.25) : Just an amazing beer in my opinion. Definitely a new favorite, especially around barbecue season.
