On tap poured into a sampling glass at Extreme Beer Fest 2012. Much of this will carry over from my Morning Wood review but this was still a stand out of the fest.

Pours a black-as-night color with a small dark brown head that is fine and just clings everywhere in your glass. Nose is still utterly amazing for a coffee lover like me, the coffee is slightly more pronounced and less mellow but still amazing.

Taste follows the nose, more coffee, a bit more acidic but then again coffee is acidic so no real surprise. Maple is still present and delicious. Overall this is an awesome candidate for barrel aging but it's nearly as good off steel.

Serving type: on-tap

From notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter. This bottle is about a year old.

Wide Awake pours a dark brown mahogany color with almost no head formation on the initial pour.

The aroma still jumps out of the glass. Bursts of espresso, sweet maple syrup, smoke, and vanilla all come through. With the age of the bottle I would not be surprised if the coffee smelled even better fresh, but it still smells incredible. Each whiff unveils a little bit more complexity. This is definitely a winner.

The flavor is huge. There coffee flavor manifests itself in the beginning of the sip, with what seems to be a few different types of exquisite espresso. Sweetness runs rampant with maple syrup flavors coming through during each part of the sip, with a little bit of vanilla as well. A thorough smoked malt flavor comes through representing the bacon. There is no concern of it being too smokey, a fear I often have with beers that use smoked malts. What is truly amazing is how each sip provides a new angle on the combination of coffee, maple syrup, and smoke. Each flavor develops more thoroughly with each sip, making this a glass that never gets boring.

Each sip is truly a full bodied treat. It is so thick and viscous, with a light and creamy carbonation. It is definitely sweet, sticky, and syrupy, and more than a little over the top.

This beer impressed me even more than the Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, which is saying something. I would love to have a fresh bottle to compare.
