Best by date of 09.02.2014.
Pored from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 02.04.14.

A: Black/red. Some see through. Tan head.

S: Caramel mostly, also coffee, chocolate, toffee.

T: Caramel, coffee, toffee are dominant. Pecan, chocolate, maple are there too.

M: Creamy. Very light feeling in the mouth.

O: This is like having a maple bar in drinkable form. It has maple syrup in it, according to the label, and you can tell. There's quite a bit of complexity too. This is a great porter.

This pours a dark brown color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is very malty with hints of maple and pecan. The flavor is thinner than expected but rather interesting. There are some very nutty tones with just a touch of maple shinning through. Not my favorite Sam Adams brew yet has an interesting flavor for the ingredients.
