Brooklyn Brewmaster's Series Mary's Maple Porter
Brooklyn Brewmaster’s Series Mary’s Maple Porter from Mad Mex in Shadyside. The beer pours a dark brown color with a thin bubbly tan colored head. The aroma consists of strong maple syrup, toasted malts, and coffee. The taste is full of roasted malts accompanied by plenty of maple syrup. A hint of coffee appears before a dry finish that is very robust. The alcohol content is 7.2% ABV. I thought the maple syrup provided a great flavor to this beer, but there wasn’t enough of a backbone to balance out the sweetness. I’d probably drink it again, but I can only drink one of these per sitting.
