Appearance- almost black color, thin head

Smell- malt, nutty aroma

Taste- malt, pecan, bit of maple

Mouthfeel- medium to full bodied

Drinkability- I thought it was pretty good. I probably wouldn't buy it again but I would definitely drink it again.

Pours a mahogany body with a big tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas are overwhelmingly sweet and reminiscent of a table full of steaming flapjacks and hot pecan pies with a hint of roastiness and autumnal earthiness. Tastes like liquid toffee on the front palate, with the sweetness building with notes of maple syrup on the midpalate, before a woodier, earthier elements make the presence notes. Bitter pecan skin comes out on the finish, but not enough to make you forget that this is a super sweet, dessert-like beer. Overall a fun novelty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- pours brown in color with a bright ruby hue, solid foamy & sudsy light tan head with good retention

S- sweet maple syrup noticed first, smooth roasted malt character gives it a nutty aroma with a touch of chocolate and caramel

T- sweet maple flavors are complimented nicely by the roasted nutty malt, faint flavors of chocolate and raisin, the finish is dry with nutty aromas and just a bit of hop bitterness on the linger.

M- medium body and carbonation with a lively foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- nice flavors of maple and nut while keeping them at bay makes is a good choice for a spring porter. Nothing on the extreme end of flavors, but well balanced and easy to drink

-pairs well with some roasted candied pecans
