A: [2.50] The bottle lacks an ABV listing (booo!). IT also lacks a date code. The beer is a coffee brown color and forms almost no head. There is just a ring of khaki film along the edge of the glass.

S: [3.00] Dark fruit galore. Really strong scents of figs and plums. There is some chocolate and some smokey bacon scent.

T: [2.75] Charred smokey flavor. There is a bit of a chalky flavor (or maybe feel?).

M: [2.25] Thin and really undercarbonated. I was suspicious when I poured it and got nothing.

O: [2.75] Not good. The beer is flat. Since there is n dating there is no way to know if it is bad normally or is really old. I bought it 2 months ago. The mouthfeel is downright bad. Visually it was not nice either. The taste is below fair with a chalky taste that hurts some okay roasted malts. Won't buy/drink this again.

8/28....pours deep dark black, borders on a purple brown. Foam settles. Maple/chocolate nose, again very faint. Smooth milk chocolate based flavor with a maple sweetness.

Out of the bottle. Dark, deep brown, motor oil like in color. Not much of a head, but maple sugar sweetness is definitely present on the nose. Tastes like a traditional American Porter with a hint of maple throughout. Very pleasant tasting as a whole. It's almost as if someone put maple coffee creamer into their morning joe. Medium-bodied and easy drinking for sure.

Looks like a porter, smells like a porter, feels like a porter, but the taste was just okay. Given the name not much maple flavor showing through here which was disappointing. Not a bad beer, but not what I expected either.

A - Well it's fairly pitch black yet the head is minimal just a 1/4 inch that settles to nothing.
S - Roasty malts meet maple syrup and dry sweetness. Hope it's balanced.
T - Well it's not overly sweet and very dry but seems balanced enough. Has some roasty edge bittersweet chocolates and again maple syrup. Not bad.
M - Medium bodied, somewhat slick easy to drink.

Overall after finding their doppelbock somewhat lackluster this porter is easy to drink and has maple flavors. Whats not not love?
