Drove over an hour for this. Poured on tap at The Funky Buddha into a snifter. An imperial version is in the works!

Dark brown with pretty much no head. A quick swirl brings up a mocha colored half-finger.

Took the smallest whiff and WOAH! Olfactory overload! If I had closed my eyes I would have sworn I was smelling a fresh cup of coffee with just a hint of maple... like when you can't help but get sticky maple syrup all over the handle of your mug o' joe at breakfast and you end up smelling it when you take a sip. You know what I'm talking about...

A small taste and... SAVORY (umami), BITTER and SWEET! That's 3 out of 5 of the primary tastes all in one glass. I get the bitter coffee notes balanced by sweet malts and maple, rounded out by a hint of smoked protein... you know the one.

Mouthfeel is good... not very thick, little carbonation. Could be a little thicker. The thin character definitely makes it more drinkable so I see the intention there, but I mean... I want to be able to use a utensil on this sucker//. Sorry, I had to stop typing to smell the maple syrup on my fingers.

Best Porter I've ever had. Would love to have a hint of oak in there as well.

On tap at CCB for Hunahpu release. Keg's went quick and was able to get two.

Brown in color with little to no head or lacing. Smells of sweet, sweet maple. Lots of coffee also. Absolutely delicious. Tastes identical to smell. Tons of coffee and sweet maple. Medium to thin bodied. Very little carbonation. Overall fantastic. This is liquid crack in a cup.

Finally getting around to adding this review in. From a 32oz growler (what a weird growler size) shared at a SMBDC meeting. Thanks Drazzamatazz for saving this one, probably the highlight and was a great way to start the meeting!

Pours a dark brown color with a small bit of head in my taster glass, not much lacing produced from the 2-3oz pour.

Smell is incredible, huge whiff of coffee dominants with a bit of sweetness cutting the coffee bitterness thanks to the maple presence, not picking up any bacon though, grrr!

Taste follows up on the aroma with a strong coffee kick, rounds out with a nice roasted malt backing and a touch of maple sweetness, still not getting any bacon flavor, not sure if that's a good thing or not considering bacon is quite salty and might not fit with the other flavors, carbonation is soft but present although porters tend to have higher carbonation than this, still it works for this beer and gives it a creamier mouthfeel than it would be otherwise.

The bacon in the name is certainly for hype, but this beer makes up for it by actually being a really great beer. Glad I got to try this before the insane hype started to kick in.

On-tap at 2nd Hunahpu's Release.

A - Pours a medium brown color, off-white head that vanishes quickly that leaves a few bubbles here and there on top with no lacing.

S - Who needs to eat breakfast when you have this? Bacon, coffee, roasted malts, smoke.

T - Lots going on here and comparable to the nose. Bacon, smoke, coffee notes, malts, some sweetness in there too.

M - Light, a bit too thin for the style, little to no carbonation.

D - Had one sample and that was enough. I wish it was a bit more thick and had a touch of carbonation. Otherwise, a very cool beer that I'd try again if given the chance.

On Tap at hunahpu's

A: Dark dark brown with a head that went away real quick. If they actually brewed with bacon that might have affected the head retention.

S: Good lord the name is spot on. Maple syrup, bacon and coffee all waft from the glass

T: Just like the smell, the tastes blasts you with syrup, bacon, and coffee, and in that order. My one criticism would be that it was too powerful. I was completely overtaken with the taste of breakfast in a bottle, but what a great breakfast it was.

M: Thick and fitting for a beer with a name like this and taste like this.

D: I've seen others say it was highly drinkable, so I guess to each his own. I thought it was best at half a glass, splitting with someone else. The taste is too overpowering beyond that. Good sipper though. Would be a fabulous breakfast beer if it ever got bottled.

On tap at the hunahpu release.

A: Pretty much opaque. A fluffy mocha head fades to nothing and not much lace to it either.

A: Holly breakfast batman! I could smell the maple from 5 feet away. This smells absolutely heavanly! Big coffee, maple syrup, and smoke. I mean it's just off the hook.

T: again pretty much breakfast in porter form. More maple syrup, coffee, and bacon. Great roasted malt profile and next to no hop presence. Finishes sweet and delicious!

M: a touch thin, light body. Good levels of carbonation.

D and overall impression: I could drink this stuff all day long, it's not just for breakfast. Overall, this is a hit. Original and well crafted. It really is breakfast in a glass. Get it if you can. Skal.

On tap at Hunahpu's Day 2011.

Pours a muddy brown color with minimal head. The nose on this is absurd. The name doesn't lie, this smells like a delicious breakfast spread. Coffee and maple syrup dominate the nose. The taste is just fantastic. It just tastes like breakfast! The bacon comes through a lot more on the taste, adding some great smokiness to prevent the maple from becoming cloying. I spilled a little bit on my hands, and they still smell like syrup. Very good.

The mouthfeel is perfect, it's actually a bit lighter and thinner than the name would let on, which is a very good thing. If this had a full and thick mouthfeel, I think the maple syrup would be way too cloying, the mouthfeel accents all the right parts of the brew as-is. The drinkability is superb, especially considering the full flavor of the brew. An awesome porter, very unique and absolutely worth seeking out.

Draft at Cigar City, Hunahpu Day 2011.

Pours a deep dark chocolate brown color which is completely opaque with a one finger frothy micha headthat quickly settles into a lasting ring. Minimal spots of lacing left behind.

Wow, the aroma of this beer is ridiculous! Slightly roasty and smokey with a blast of chocolate/mocha/espresso. Not burnt or acrid smelling at all with lots of luscious chocolate, roasted espresso bean and sweet maple syrup. Kind of smells like a Southern Tier dessert beer.

Medium bodied with a smooth silky roasted chocolate mocha espresso flavor. Very well balanced with the perfect roasted character, sweet malt and maple. Thankfully the coffee presence is prominent without being overly acrid or tasting like used coffee grinds. Lots of silky, luscious milk and bittersweet chocolate flavor as well as some slight smokiness and sweet maple. With bacon in the name I was expecting this beer to be more robust, smokey and burnt tasting but it's just a touch and a very nice compliment to the sweeter flavors. No noticeable alcohol heat making this smooth beer very quaffable.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with this one. It doesn't quite live up to the extremely high scores it's received so far but it's pretty damn good. Even somefolks who hate coffee beers were really into it.

32 oz screw-top growler into a couple of tulip glasses. Big thanks go to Stakem for generously sharing this with me.

Pours black at first, but holding it up to the light actually reveals a deep ruby hue to this, and is topped with a ½ finger of light mocha colored head. This stays frothy on the edges, with a filmy look across the center. This has a very robust flare-up to it, leaving back a foamy cascade of lacing that slowly recedes into rich swathes of lacing. I can't quite put my finger on this recognizable aroma at first, until I realize that it smells....LIKE BREAKFAST!!! Bacon and sausage mixed with maple syrup covered chocolate chip pancakes and a dash of zippy coffee character. Oh, and just a smidge of earthy hop across the back of the nose to remind you that your actually smelling a beer!

The taste brings things back down to reality a bit. The smoky flavors are more subtle here and hang on the edges of a core of roasted coffee, light bitter hops, and sweet chocolate. That molasses flavor is present as well but doesn't quite stand out, instead integrating itself with all of the other flavors a bit more. Smoke and coffee hang in a rather dry finish. All of those flavors from the nose are present and balanced with each other but this just overall lacks the impact of that aroma. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe a touch fuller feeling, with a nice mellow creaminess to the carbonation. Some light sharpness works itself in to, adding a gentle crispness to the proceedings, and zero alcohol presence helps keep this easy in the mouth and quite drinkable.

While this one didn't quite live up to the hype, I still found it very impressive how they were able to pull all of these unique flavors off into a very interesting yet still approachable drinkable package. That's 2 for 2 so far on these Funky Buddha beers for me. I will continue to seek more of these out.

Thanks to DosBeerigos for the trade and the opportunity to give this brewery a try. I've held on to this 32oz "apothecary" growler for too long just waiting to share it with someone. Finally an opportunity to open and share it when visited by Kegatron!

From the screwtop growled into a pair of snifters, this brew appears nearly black in color with brown clarity showing through the edges. When held to the light this brew reveals some deep ruby coloration. A dark whisp of dark brown head holds close to the edges of the glass with spotty lace clinging to the wall. A swirl revives the cap.

The smell of this brew has quite a lot going on. It takes me quite a few sniffs before I try to pick it apart. It has a mildly musty grain scent that's blended in with a seemingly smoked sweetness of molasses. There is a bit of a woodsy scent reminiscent rauchbiers that is smokey and enjoyable. There is an underlying amount of coffee present that adds to the complexity.

The taste of this brew is equally perplexing, complex and enjoyable as the aroma. There is a light burnt flavor upfront that gives way to a smoked quality coupled with light molasses character that again reveals a bit of some smokey notes. There is a modest amount of bitterness that creates a unique blend of roasted malt to sugary molasses and coffee. The aftertaste of this brew is sweet with caramel malt mixed with molasses. Quite a bit more woodsy in the way it tastes than what I was expecting but still enjoyable.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Very drinkable with quite a lot of flavoring to take in and enjoy. This beer, while a pleasure to drink and something I would certainly seek out again, was a wild ride. Take away the visual and I never really felt like I was drinking a porter. In so many ways this brew reminds me of the conglomeration of different beer styles that makes up Bullfrog's Gothika. It's a crazy hybrid of rauchbier/smoked beer mixed with a porter and supplemented with coffee and molasses. In every way this brew screams morning/breakfast treat.

Served in a half pint glass at The Funky Buddha. Thanks to HeatherAnn, HollyAnn, and Keith for the assist!

A: Served pure inky black with a thin and sticky wafer of dark khaki colored head sitting on top. After a short while all that is left was a thick collar that left a suprisingly healthy amount of lace in the glass.

S: Holy crap! Smells just like its' name. Fresh maple syrup, applewood smoked bacon, and fresh pulled espresso shots blended with dark chocolate, deeply roasty malt, and campfire smoke.

T: Taste mirrors the smell. Breakfast in a glass while sitting around a campfire is what this tasted like. Superb!

M: Smooth, full, and quite creamy with just a hint of roasted malt dryness.

D: Man oh man, This is one of the most impressive beers I've had in a while. The folks at The Funky Buddha are just killing with the stuff they're putting out. Simply excellent!

A : Poured black w/ dark brown hue around the edges. Head is tan / minimal thickness and quick dissipation. Minimal Viscosity.

A: Straight maple syrup w/ blend of morning coffee.

F: Likewise in flavor. Sweet upfront w/ coffee / a little toasty on the back end.

M: Mouthfeel is medium-light. No alcohol warmth.

O: This is the best porter I've ever had. I'd have more to say, but I'll let this beer talk for itself. Seek it out !!

32oz growler opened by Drazzamatazz prior to the SMBDC stout tasting. Had about 2-3 oz in a tasting glass. Thanks again Sean

A: Brown, somewhat translucent. Had a little bit of mocha head, not much retention though

S: Right off the bat, this reminded me of fresh brewed coffee. Then, it's as if someone dumped some maple syrup in. The two aromas blend nicely, creating a very inviting nose

T: The nose is just a preview of this beer. Roasted coffee, light chocolate/vanilla. Impressive maple presence. Like waffles drenched in syrup. The only thing missing is any sign of bacon, but there is a light smokiness in the finish. Just an incredible tasting porter

M: Medium bodied, light carbonation. Light roasted coffee finish

D: This beer is definitely worthy of all the attention it's getting. If possible, I would absolutely trade for a growler of my own. Delicious

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.

Growler shared by Mike, thanks! A truly wonderful beer.

Beer is black / dark brown and hazy with a thin wispy head, no lacing, low carbonation. Looks OK.

Aroma is super nice and really complex. First off, it's strong with coffee, the maple is second but there is not much bacon though.

Beer is medium in body and so creamy, as the beer warms the maple becomes more obvious. The maple is mostly in the back / aftertaste as the beer finishes mildly dry. The coffee and some sweetness is the most obvious flavors in the entire palate. I really liked this beer overall. A very good beer.

Growler courtesy of Dosbeerigos. Thanks, Phil! Served in a snifter.

Pours a very dark brown with a nice tan head and a bit of spotty lacing. Thin collar as it goes down. Nose is quite incredible with large doses of vanilla, smoke, and coffee off the front end. As it warms up, the maple really starts to come out. Very, very nice. The flavor hits the same high notes with a good dosing of roast and coffee plus some maple. Not as much smokiness here. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry finish and moderate carbonation. Incredibly drinkable and we certainly had no problem finishing off this 32-ounce growler. Thanks again to Phil for the awesome hookup on this one.

Growler courtesy of dimenhetfield. Poured from one of the cooler growlers I've seen into tulip.

A: Pitch black with lighter head than I expected. Light carbonation but tough to gauge from a growler.

S: Strong dark roasted coffee beans, baking chocolate, wondering if the taste will have this much coffee.

T: Coffee and vanilla up front, nestle cocoa powder in the middle, with some maple presence in the throat on way down. Maple eaves a sweetness behind. Not picking up bacon but to be honest I'm a vegetarian and may not be the best judge of that (hoping they didn't use real bacon in the brewing:)

M: Appropriate mouthfeel and carbonation. Smooth...brewed with lactose?? Almost like a milk porter!

D: This is a delicious beer. All the components come together for an amazing drinking experience. Although I think this beer is best appreciated in small amounts, I could drink it every night. It would make a great dessert beer and would pair wonderfully with some vanilla ice cream.

Although I would have liked more smokiness from a beer labeled "bacon" this still was tastier than I expected. I can't wait to try other offerings from Funky Buddha.

Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

This very intriguing brew appears a dark brown shade, with crimson highlights apparent when held to the light. The head is about a quarter inch thick, and settles down to a thin layer atop the beer. The smell is just awesome. Wow! Scents of maple, vanilla, smoke, chocolate and a robust coffee presence make for a world class aroma. The taste does not disappoint, though it doesn't quite live up to the promises of the fabulous aroma. Fresh coffee and maple syrup are blended to perfection, with some chocolate and vanilla notes coming in behind. I actually thought this beer was higher in alcohol. Highly drinkable - I could sip this all night. In fact, that's what I did.

Poured from a growler via kfsv034. Sick looking growler as well

A. Pours a dark dark brown with a white head. Great retention and lacing.

S. HUGE espresso more than coffee as the name may suggest up front. Maple syrup and a decent amount of roastiness. More maple as it warms.

T. Espresso, maple syrup and more espresso on the tongue. Some typical porter roast. Good choice of yeast as I dont get that typical porter dirt taste. As, it warms, I get a ton more maple.

M- I think this is what makes the beer for me. It is soooo stinkin smooth. The carbonation is perfect. Its creamy for such as small beer. I love the mouthfeel.

D-I would love this beer all day everday. Its small enough to have several of them, but has enough flavor to be able to enjoy several of them. Not much bacon, but a great beer from South Florida, breaking the shell of a beer wasteland. BOOM

I don't normally take the time to review a beer, but this one is exceptional. I've been fortunate to have 2 different batches at the brewpub and both have well exceeded my expectations.

Served in a snifter

The first thing that hits you is the amazing aroma, like you are inhaling a stack of maple syrup covered pancakes...underneath you get a hint of the bacon.

In the taste, more of the maple and lots of coffee.
A phenomenal beer. If my wife would let me (and there was more of it to go around) I would drink one everyday for breakfast.
Thanks, Funky Buddha!

Wow! I typically do not review beers, but this beer is an exception.

Had this beer yesterday at the Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival. The line was insane to get a sample of this beer, and the keg went quick!

Poured a dark brown almost black, with a nice amount of head to the tasting glass. The aroma was filled with coffee, maple syrup, and hints of smoke. This is a breakfast beer! The taste was unlike anything that I have had before. Lots of maple syrup on the initial taste, then followed up with some serious coffee notes. Simply Amazing!

I went back for a second taste and the keg was kicked!

This was the best beer at the festival, it was the most drinkable out of all the big stouts which were being poured (Hunahpu, Big Bear's Imperial Stout, Swamp Heads Midnight Oil Treatment, and several other stouts/porters). Just a fantastic beer!

The smell of this beer is... wow. It reminds me of breakfast. coffee and maple eminate so wonderfully from this beer. I didn't pick out the bacon so much but it didn't even matter, it was that good. For a brewery that has only been open since November; they certainly can brew an amazing beer. I loved that it had so much flavor but as soon as it was gone; it was gone. I had an IPA right after it and there was no lingering taste at all. drinkability was good, it was definitly a full-bodied beer with a ton of distinct flavors, one was enough for me as it was on the heavier side. but it was a great one!

A: black as night. thin mocha colored head. its very alluring, maimly because of the smell emenating that backs up the opal black liquid.
S: black coffee, espresso, chocolate, maple backbone... its
so intense overall however the bacon fails to come through no matter how hard i try to find it. i almost tell myself i get it mainly because i want to, but still cant.
T: holy crap its so good. again unfortunately i dont really get the bacon, but i may just be so focused on the intensity of all the other flavors whirling around. it screams black coffee of the finest kind, just the right amount of bittering chocolate, and the maple serves as a balance for the whole shebang. so. delicious.
M: its heavier than your usual porter, but this is no ordinary porter, so it can do whatever it wants. its every move is spectacular, as the flavors crowd your mouth, but when its time to go, they go. sometimes coffee beers can just linger a little too long with the bitterness, but this one does not do so.
D: drink it all night. nuff said.

Big thanks to Snoop Dog Nate for hooking us up with this, and another shout out to Alex, Jason, and Nate again for not drinking the whole thing, and the Master(Ski)ful Alex one more time for bringing a bit back in the growler.

A - Pours a super dark, black depending on the light, brown that lets some light pass through the edges. Finger of tan head that left behind some long lasting spots throughout consumption.

S - Smell was a bit of a shocker, and took me a second to figure out exactly what was going on. Perfect blend of coffee and maple syrup. It's almost like it's a new substance, they are combined so well. Bitter chocolte, distinct espresso (somehow still a separate note from the coffee/maple combo), and some sweet malt top it all off. Not sure where the bacon is on this one.

T - Taste follows suite with the smell. The coffee and bitter espresso notes tone down the sweetness of a strikingly present maple syrup. I would call the coffee on this the backbone, with chocolate, maple, caramel, and milk creamer in there. My one complaint on this fantastic taste is the absence of any type of bacon, smoke, pig, grease, rauch, whatever, something to make sense of th name. I guess it's hard to complain about what's not there given all the great stuff that is, but the name is misleading at worst, but at the very least, confusing.

M - Full bodied, chewy, syrupy, tongue coating, with low carbonation. Feels a bit heftier than its 6.3%.

D - A truly fantastic beer, best maple beer I have had to date. Would highly recommend and drink every chance I get. For their next trick, I hope they add some subtle smoke to it, to make it match the name.

This is a very solid beer, but everything I got from it was very nice coffee porter with a little bit of smoke. While smelling and sipping, hoping to get some bacon, I might have caught a little whiff but never in the flavor. And I completely forgot about maple. I didn't catch maple at all...at all.
