Oak-Aged Maple Coffee Pecan Porter Reserve (Batch 2)

Tons of nutty coffee flavor. The barrel aging adds depth and not a lot of heat. It drinks very smooth for a big beer.
Probably because I'm not a pecan fan so don't held back if you like them
If you like pecan pie this is a must try. This would be perfect on a fall evening
So it’s obvious from the picture that it pours pretty dark with a nice foam head to it. The upfront nose is most definitely maple but while pulling back it smelled almost like a tad bit of “soy sauce.” When the beer first hits the taste buds you immediately get the coffee which is rather forward, but all of a sudden the nuttiness of the pecan is not far behind. The finish becomes this syrupy maple(y) almost pancake quality to it. Overall a very tasty potter that would paid with a nice rack of BBQ RIBS!!!
Another gem from 903
Really interesting beer. Distinct spice profile that I can't tell whether it comes from the wood, the maple, or the pecan. Solid offering that stands out as unique
I looooooove the maple flavor!! Maple with a nutty finish. So amazing.
This is the perfect beer for brunch! I've had pecan porters before, but they were no where near this great! Spicy and complex, a perfect way to warm up on a cold morning. I drank it Christmas morning, hope I can make it a tradition!
a low carbonation level feel, followed by a mid bitterness flavor of coffee, maple, whereas the pecan seems to be drowned out of the taste of the beer or possibly blended too well with the maple flavor. With a nice mid alcohol level feel in the end. Love it. 8/10 beer for me.
Amazing. Need to get more of this. All flavors come through
Rich coffee taste with a nutty and maple background. Boozy but not over the top
AMAZING example of a porter! Coffee, maple and pecan all come through nicely. Didn't taste overly boozy despite the 12.7% ABV. Light texture, clean mouth feel, mild dry finish, easy drinking. Does 903 EVER make a mistake?
Rich, breakfast flavor with a robust malt finish!
Great beer, but coffee strong, little taste of pecan and maple.
Omg this is amazing. Delicious breakfast porter on par with CBS. Like pecan pancakes in a can!
Don’t plan anything very active after this - a nice slow sipper
Too much coffee flavor :(
This is a trap. Run!
Really nice balance of all the flavors and hides the booze really well
Oh so boozy and tasty, should have ordered more!! Please brew again 903 and share again Tavour!!
Off the chain...
Nutty, Sweet, Coffee, Syrup
Tan head, cola appearance, slightly sweet toasted pecan aroma, bold coffee taste with a hint of vanilla, creamy mouthfeel, and a subtle alcohol burn in the finish.
This one has a very strong oak flavor. Little too much so, for me.
Lots of pecan but didn’t really enjoy it.
gives a blast of maple upfront. Turns to roast and coffee throughout. Maple does linger after the sip. ABV is mostly hidden but it’s pretty sweet overall. Oak is hidden. Rides the cloying line.
903 has not yet made a beer I wouldn’t drink. Typically that’s in the gose, fruited ale, and Berliner weisse realm but this porter is proof they can do other styles. Was one of my first experiences with 903 and it’s still a found memory
Tip: Let this amazing beer sit out in a room temperature glass for 5 minutes untouched, let the flavors expand. The balance of this beer is damn near perfect as each ingredient balances each other out, the boldness off the coffee comes together with the pecans in almost earthy element but from a family baking day. The maple on the back end adds a sugar to your coffee element which is delightful. I wish I bought more when available, even my non beer friends enjoyed this.
Another hit from 903!! The coffee flavors were strong but not too strong. It was a great beer!!
This is a bit intense, but amazing if that is what you are in the mood for. Personally there are times I'd just prefer to drink my dessert and this fits well into that category. Very thick and rich like pecan pie strong coffee flavor.
Some maple beers are good. Some have weird off flavors. This is one that has weird off flavors.
Great flavor. You can easily taste the blends of pecan, maple, and coffee. Another great beer from 903.
Pecan is the name of the game. From the aroma to flavor, if you're not into pecans, then pass this one by. It's a little dry at the finish, but that's typical for a porter.
Great porter, the maple and coffee are well balanced
Only flavor i got was strong burnt coffee.
So good yum! Will be getting this one again
This is a spectacular porter. The barrel aged flavor mixed prefect with the coffee and pecan, followed up with the solid maple after taste. Really great beer, wish I got more. Cheers
Nice, on the dry side for a pastry porter. More coffee than maple or pecan. Second can has more pecan and maple, less coffee. Quite tasty.
A little too much coffee for me
The maple and coffee combo didn’t work for me
When first opened very cold, more maple notes came through after it sat for a while the coffee and pecans
Way too much going on here for my taste. Didn’t get through the whole can
