Pours a mild brown with a brown head into my glass. Scratch that. It's more of a chestnut brown.

Sweet with hints of brown sugar and cocoa. Simplified in a way.

Taste is much the same. Sweet. Chewy. I think the maple sugar imparts something unique.

It shows mostly in the mouthfeel, which is slickly sweet.

Very good for the style. A traditional english porter.

Tried This Beer On Tap and must say if you have tried this out of a bottle or can and didn't like it.. give it another try if you can find it on tap somewhere in your area.
The head much creamier and you detect the sweet maple taste much easier on tap rather than out of the bottle.
Subtle coffee taste and the taste in gerneral is very sweet! Slight spice and very little chocolate flavor. Goes Down Very easy and its not as crazy coffee like as the other dark beers out there.
Definitely give it a try!
But i still think the bottle version is pretty damn good!
