Pours a dark brown with a slightly creamy beige head, slowly fading and some lacing. Aroma and taste of sweet malt, roasted caramel and some pleasant maple syrup flavor. Palate is a medium body, slightly creamy with mild carbonation and a bit sticky. Finishes with a sweet lightly roasted caramel and a bit of nutty pecan maple syrup ending. Overall a good drinking and flavorful brew.

A: Reddish-brown pour with a healthy lasting khaki colored head that had a firm, whipped consistency. Good rush of visible carbonation climbs along the vessel walls. Thick, meaty deposits of lace adore the glass.

S: Fresh wet coffee grounds, dark fruit (black cherry skin), dry maple syrup, earthy tree bark and pecans.

T: Sweet, dried maple syrup and coffee for flavor. Toffee and caramel sweetness chimes in with some smoked earthy, lightly burnt bitterness. Pecan and chocolate malts combine with a rich coffee presence along with some dark fruit skin. Earthy bitterness, soil, roasty fade off the tongue.

M: Chewy, oats, lush body, mid-range carbonation with an lingering earthy bitterness.

O: Overall nice flavor, sweet dried maple-coffee really hits the intended mark. Easy drinkability. Intriquing and different.

Samuel Adam's Maple Pecan Porter 6pk bottles $9.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date marked as a notch. i prefer a printed date.

pours a very dark red brown almost black. i can see light through the glass. a two finger tan-white creamy head. gives way to decent lacing. not great but good.

smells like a porter should. with hints of maple and pecan. coffee and chocolate linger behind the foreground.

the taste is surprisingly good. kind of bitter at first with coffee and chocolate. finishes with a bitter-sweet maple pecan taste.

mouth feel is pretty light. but most porters are. carbonation is great. the carmel feeling clings to your mouth and grabs a hold. again SA brews towards the low ABV side, but i have no complaints.

overall a good porter. the maple and pecan are unique. but are very subtle and pick up at the end. the coffee over powers the chocolate which is out of balance. but i was impressed with SA and this porter. its no game changer, but a good quality porter. i would buy it again but, my go to porter is and always will be Edmund Fitzgerald. cheers!
