Huge thanks to my cousin Sonny for giving me a chance to try this. Split at a tasting and full notes taken at the time of review.

A- Pitch black pour from the bomber to several glasses for our tasting. A one finger tan cap builds up and retains fairly well. The head falls to a creamy, foamy ring with some islands in the middle. Lacing starts out with spots and dies out after some time.

S- Holy maple syrup from the heavens, dominant syrup reigns supreme here as I open the bottle. Some smokiness and caramel as well as cocoa roast grains in the backdrop of the maple pancakes.

T- Liquid breakfast feel that reminds me of a pancake drenched in good maple syrup. Coffee opens up here immensely compared to the nose and adds to the breakfast experience, nice medium roast beans. Roast cereal grains, cocoa powder, some fruits, more maple syrup and some smoke.

MF- Medium bodied with a nice creamy texture and some frothiness. Carbonation at a moderate level and works out fine with the rich breakfast assault. Light coffee bitterness.

Lots to say but it just all works out into an experience of liquid breakfast, and a good one at that. I swear I'm getting ghost sausage grease notes because I feel like I'm at a breakfast joint. Lives up to its name.

22oz shared by none other than Cam. Long-time Want, yee ha! Nicely paired with some bacon gouda supplied by Dan and Emma. Thanks!

Appearance - Dark brown, some clarity and flecks noticeable. Bubbly beige head retains great as a full cap, no lace left.

Smell - Wha! Straight up chocolate chip pancakes drenched with maple syrup and butter, with just hints of smoke, roast and coffee. Not getting the bacon but absurdly unreal, authentic and rich.

Taste - Not as insane, but more balanced and quite good in its own right. Lingering flavors of maple, cocoa, coffee, light roast and caramel. Definitely not getting bacon which is unfortunate, but hard to complain really.

Mouthfeel - A little on the thin side with low carbonation, fits the beer decently but I thought this category could've used more oomph. Sweetness/richness is a bit cloying but it's tasty enough for it not to be an issue.

Overall - Really crazy stuff, this is savory maple breakfast madness. Rich enough so a small pour would probably suffice, but so tasty I can't help but quaff. Kinda simple and sweet but I think it'd be hard not to dig this one. Next time I have this, I'd like it with a side of French Toast Double Brown, please.

Great candy beer!

A- Dark brownish hue around the edge with pitch black in the center. Large lacing with no legs.

S- The best quality of this brew. Huge huge maple syrup, then maple syrup, then maple syrup, then cofee chocolate and a well done bacon slight slight background.

T- Most maple syrup I have ever had. I am late on the maple game, but I will have CBS this weekend. Hope I get something out of that one at this point. Bacon is not offputing, has a well done bacon taste, coffee is present along with chocolate.

M- Very nice smooth with the right amount of carb.

O- A great candy beer that I am in first glass of. Thank God I have other styles to mix in tonight to help me crush this brew.

***2014 Vintage***

Huge thanks to Aespi for sending me this when i haven't even shipped to him yet.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle, no #freshbeer info (but i know it is!).

Pours a dark brown, which a thick tan head and great retention. The aroma is simply stunning! They totally nailed it. Fresh cooked breakfast, bacon fat, smoke, fresh brewed coffee, maple soaked pancakes and a bit of milk chocolate. Flavor is less intense but still good. Strong on the bacon, good robust coffee and ends in a sweet maple note. Very low carbonation. Even texture has that greasy feel mixed with warm sweet coffee and the feel of sticky syrup. This is breakfast in a glass and i loved it.

2014 batch. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dull black with a finger of light brown head, which a few streaks of lacing on the glass as it recedes to a solid cap. Superb retention.

S: Wow, loads of sweet maple syrup and coffee, smoked roasty malts that don’t really scream “bacon” to me, and some fresh mint. They have the maple and coffee spot-on, though.

T: Medium roast coffee up front, along with the malts, with the syrup more noticeable mid-palate, some fresh mint, followed by an everlasting finish of coffee and syrup. Not quite as amazing at the nose, but still super tasty. It’s got just a little sweetness from the syrup, but (fortunately!) it’s pretty subtle; not what you might expect.

M: Medium-light body, smooth, with medium carbonation.

O: Highly drinkable and a great novelty. I can only imagine the food pairings for this, assuming I had extra bottles to piss away. The aroma is amazing, though the taste doesn’t *quite* live up to it. And I’m not getting any bacon from this. Maybe it’s already faded?
