Your boots settle in the snow, and you are lured by the steam rising above the sugar shack within the stand of ancient maples. A breeze sways the bare branches on that wooded hillside, and the scent of the wood fire is like incense beneath that stunningly blue New Hampshire winter sky. And there in your bulky mitt you clutch a pint of this ambrosial black brew. For you are imbibing a maple porter, and in this wooded wonderland you indulge your spirit with this ale's malty sweetness and its layers of caramel and nutty, chocolaty roastiness, all wrapped lavishly in maple. You feel yourself shiver, but it's not from the cold, as you are filled with this porter and the spirit of the deep woods to the depths of your soul.
