Poured from a sealed growler from a friend that got this sent to them from the FBL directly!!!!
Poured in a tasting tulip. pours a pitch black with minimal head. was poured pretty soft since it was a tasting glass.
the nose is amazing... light roasted coffee followed by a hint a sweetness and a tad of smoke.
the taste is amazing. all of the different aspects of the beer come through at different stages of the taste. First you get the coffee on the front/ initial taste. Then as it moves back in the mouth the maple sweetness takes over ( but not in an over powering way like a creme brulee) then after you swallow and breath a little but the smoke (savory bacon) hits the back of the throat!
This is one amazing beer for sure! Glad i was able to try 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.
