From Nickel Brook Brewing;

“We brewed our Nickel Brook Maple Porter to be first and foremost, a robust and full bodied porter, using premium roasted and pale malts. We then infuse pure, dark Canadian maple syrup into the brewing process, so the maple essence becomes integrated during fermentation. The result is a truly wonderful and complex mixture of roast you desire in a robust porter, with background hints of maple flavour and aroma.No additive or preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, creamy finish.Nickel Brook Maple Porter is a unique Canadian interpretation of a timeless classic!”

Appearance | Near pitch black with an initially foamy head, which settles into a mocha lace head.

Smell | Roasted malts, burnt sugar, maple, with notes of wood.

Taste | Maple woodiness, roasted malts, smoke, caramel, and dark chocolate.

Aftertaste | Dry finish with maple and wood.

Overall | This is smooth and creamy to drink. Although this is a maple porter, it isn’t overwhelming with maple flavours. If the drinker prefers a more subtle flavour, age it between six months and a year in a dark, cool cellar.   The wax seal can be irksome to open but it was worth the effort.

This brew would be a great pairing with pork or ham.
