Got this fresh growler from Doodler. A totally unwarranted surprise man! Much appreciate the generosity Dood. Shared at the annual Moder Lambic tasting last weekend. Cheers boys!

From 1L swing top growler into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: Clear brown pour yields a two finger, medium looking, fluffy, light tan head with great retention. Clear black body with no carbonation evident. Fades to a faint wisp and leaves some decent lacing clinging to the glass.

SMELL: A bold maple syrup jumps right out of the growler upon opening. Everyone was quite impressed. Maple syrup, coffee, with some smoked notes that almost come across as light chilies. A touch of roasted malt in there as well, but the maple syrup and coffee seem to pull this one along. Really nice.

TASTE: A touch watery up front, especially given how impressive the nose was, but some coffee, light maple syrup, a touch of roast and some smoked meat flavors all come out, with notes of leather at the swallow. A medium but lingering aftertaste of smoky bacon, coffee, and some maple syrupy sweetness linger on the palate.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes rather dry for the style. Good.

OVERALL: Good beer and all the adjuncts are there in measured amounts. It's rather well balanced, though the flavor is a touch empty at the beginning and the base porter doesn't really seem to be important in this beer. It's mostly an adjunct show. Still, it was tasty and everyone quite enjoyed it. Would be very interested in trying this from the bottle. Thanks again Doodler! This was a fun treat.

Bottle courtesy of Bill....thank you so very much buddy.

In terms of smell this beer carries the Maple and coffee extremely well. Pancake-y sweet and luscious with a healthy dollop of rich sweetened coffee. Bacon on the nose is non existent. Had it been alive, this beer would be worthy of a cologne like enterprise.

That said, MBCP simply can't follow through on the promise of the nose. While good....nice maple and coffee presence here as well...it's neither all that deep nor does it carry any of the promised bacon. What's here is good, but if it could carry the olfactory flirtations it could be special.

A nice porter with some good components, but not quite up to Lost Snow standards.

A - Pours a dark brown with a large foamy dark tan head that fades very slowly.

S - Smoke hits first, then some maple, then over powered by the coffee.

T - Smokey bacon, then some smooth coffee, finishs with some sweet maple.

D - Heavy to medium body with good carbonation.

O - I'm impressed. How'd they get all those flavors in there. Very layered and tasty.
