In short- the beer smells great and, indeed, tastes great at the beginning. Roasted coffee blends well with the maple syrup sweetness as well as the pecan porter base. But then the aftertaste hits and this beer goes downhill. A very bitter, astringent taste that wipes out all the good stuff. I bought in a 2-pack and am going to age the second one hoping it will mellow out.

EDIT: I first reviewed this beer May 5, 2019. I had another one last night (Jan 28, 2020) and it tastes dramatically better after almost 9 months of aging. Gone is that nasty aftertaste that caused me to downvote this beer and it has now changed to a rich maple sweetness that compliments the beer nicely. Went from a 3.75 to a 4.25

Batch 1. Having this after I’m guessing a year at least of aging. Have another to age. And I’m glad I do, this is a great porter. Hits all the notes; coffee, chocolate, caramel and molasses, MAPLE (really feel the maple in here). Faint pecan on palate (palette? Paleta?) and nose. Great dark pour with a finger and a half of mocha head. Feels pretty good, not too thick and some heat, good carbonation. Very nice offering from from 903, but honestly I wouldn’t expect less. Cheers
