Notes / Commercial Description:
Evoking a complete diner-style breakfast in a glass, Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is a complex beer with a multitude of flavors at play. It pours an opaque ebony brew with a frothy tan head. Aromas of sticky maple syrup, coffee, and cream creep forth from the glass. The mouth feel is luxuriously creamy, with layers of sweet malt, toffee, and roast giving way to waves of smoke, coffee, and salted chocolate. It finishes sticky, rich, and sweet, with the flavor of maple syrup lingering pleasantly on the tongue.

Appearance - The porter poured black with a deep tan color to the head.

Smell - The coffee in the nose seemed so fresh. Maple syrup hints and chocolate were also present.

Taste - My First impression is cappuccino. This was followed by maple, rich chocolate and a light hint of smokiness from the bacon. What I find most remarkable about this one is how balanced the divergent flavors are.

Mouthfeel - I know it is a porter and not a stout, but it still seems kind of thin.

Overall -The Profile was not as bold as I expected, but it was nicely balanced. Well done!

2017 bomber as extra from El cat trustee.

Coffee liquor liquid with vigorous pour into snifter. Mocha head to rim, scant lacing.

Maple, char, chocolate, caramel, bacon.

The taste follows but is a bit muted vs the aromas. Still, the wonderful maple, caramel and malt carry through.

Medium body, a bit undercarbed, smooth, with a fudge-like, thick finish.

Nicely done adjuncted porter.
