Maple Pecan Porter
Maple Pecan Porter is a full-bodied Porter with notes of sweet Vermont maple syrup and a subtle pecan character. It passes through flavors of each, from an initial maple note, to the roasted character of coffee and chocolate, to a sweet and slightly tangy nutty finish.

Introducing one of the newest additions to our beer family – Maple Pecan Porter joins our Spring Thaw Variety Pack for 2013. We’ve brought together a few of our favorite flavors for these cooler months in this robust brew; a full-bodied porter with the added sweetness and richness of Vermont maple syrup and a subtle pecan character.
This flavorful ale is brewed with Vermont maple syrup and has a distinct pecan note for a nutty finish. The taste begins with an initial maple sweetness that combines with an underlying roasted malt character with notes of coffee and chocolate. The maltiness has another layer of flavor with the addition of pecan for a rich nuttiness and slight tanginess, rounded out by a soft sweetness.
This flavorful dark ale is a fresh take on the porter style originally brewed in London in the 18th century. English porters, men who spent their days carrying and hauling goods, sought a hearty beer to reinvigorate them after a long day of work, and this robust style has borne the name of those workers ever since. Our Maple Pecan Porter builds on the legacy of this rich, full-bodied brew but we were inspired to give it an American twist with the addition of maple syrup and pecan.
