The beer pours a dark, totally opaque black and without head formation/retention. The nose is initially spicy coffee-forward, but the maple sweetness comes through much stronger as the beer warms. The taste carries forward distinct maple sweetness, bacon smokiness, and coffee bitterness, while maintaining the integrity of a solid porter base - a very unique and enjoyable experience. Despite the heavy handed flavor profile and nearly-still body, I'm impressed by this beer's drinkability. The mouthfeel is rich with flavor, but isn't quite as heavy as a stout and despite the adjuncts, there is still some roasted malt in the finish that reminds me this is a porter. Pleased to have tried this and would definitely recommend it to others

Just didn't enjoy the flavors here. Oddly they are three of my favorite things in life but putting them into a beer was just not a good idea. I was looking forward to this and was supremely disappointed. I'm obviously in the minority here but just not my cup of tea I guess.

Way too roasty. Didn't get enough flavor.

The beer comes in a black color.

The aroma is where FB excels. It is literally breakfast in a glass. Maple sweetness, bacon smokiness, a strong roasted coffee, all covered in a touch of milk chocolate.

The flavor follows with the coffee up front, a bit of chocolate, very little smoked bacon flavor, and a medium plus porter quality.

An imperial version of this would be out of this world.

Excellent looking: dark red-brown with excellent clarity.
Not as great as the name suggests.
O: kudos for managing to get maple, coffee and a hint of bacon into a porter.
