Finally decided to open this one and give it a whirl with some friends.

As I opened the bottle I was compelled to stick my nose in it out of intrigue. Wow, big whiffs of Aunt Jemima maple syrup and strong black coffee immediately.

poured into a couple of 4oz taster glasses. Medium bodied consistency, small amounts of head and lacing. Root beer brown in color.

Took another hit of the smell from the glass, More maple, bolder coffee and now hints of smokiness, (bacon?) I could tell this will amazing when it warms a little.

The taste was surprising. Love the maple presence but the bold coffee flavor added a slight bitterness. The smokiness was less present in the taste but balanced well with the coffee and maple. All of these flavors were enhanced as the temp increased. Mouthfeel was a little thin but very pleasing.

I really enjoyed this unique brew as did my friends. I'm sad to look at the now empty bottle and hope to land another some day. Definitely recommend it.

Unbelievably delicious Funky Buddha magic.

Pours a nice dark beer. Forms a little bit of foam, which does not retain. Smell is of coffee, with a very distinct maple scent. Taste reveals a syrupy coffee that tastes like maple and closes with the smokiness of the bacon. It is a tad sweet, not heady at all.

Over time, some of the great characters of this beer disappear. Much better fresh.

32oz. Growler drank the day it arrived thanks to Jay.

Pours a transparent chestnut brown with a toffee colored decent sized head. Above average retention and lacing. A nice looking beer.

Aroma is pretty dominant coffee with also a healthy dose of maple syrup. Its actually weird, one sniff will be all coffee the next sniff is all maple. Eventually as it warmed just the faintest bacon smoke comes through. My only real complaint is the coffee aroma is somewhat stale but not enough to make it terrible.

The coffee dominates the taste more than the aroma. Its still a bit stale and last from beginning to end. The maple flavor comes towards the end and lends a nice perceived sweetness and balances out the coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel and carbonation is great, even for a semi leaky growler. Pretty velverty smooth and medium thick mouthfeel without lasting a bitterness.

Overall a really great beer with more maple flavor than I've ever had in a beer.
