Had this beer with the Saranac winter mix. Really loved the strong, but not overpowering maple flavor with the slight bitterness of this winter beer. I would have really liked to have seen Saranac continue making this one. Great for enjoying on cold nights.

A: Dark brown, but not quite black. Thin layer of white foam, it almost looks like a Coca-Cola. Lacing is pretty strong (white spots, not streaky).

S: Dark malt and caramel. Strong coffee notes. A vague hint of cream or vanilla.

T: Perhaps a hint of bourbon. Strong malt, some coffee bitterness but not too overwhelming. Maple comes through at the end. The sweetness is too artificial in flavor.

M: The maple flavor makes it nice and smooth.

O: Heavy in the stomach, but smooth on the palate. Drinakble, but there are better porters out there.
