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.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar, but when held up the light there are traces of brown are visible near the edges of the glass. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving wisps of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of coffee beans are present in the nose along with faint hints of smoke from the bacon.
T: The taste has flavors of maple along with notes of coffee beans.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This would make for an excellent choice for a breakfast beer as it combines flavors of coffee with maple syrup, although I didn't pick up any bacon, except for the hints of smoke in the smell.

For a lighter non-BA stout, this one really delivers.

2018 bottle poured into tulip. Bottled 12/29/2017.
Upon opening I set the bottle down to get a glass. I could smell the maple from at least a foot away. Pours a dark brown with larger tan head. With the maple, I could smell a smoky meat also. Taste is maple syrup to start, smokiness, with a big coffee finish. Some acridity which might be from the smoke. Thinner mouthfeel than I prefer with slight carbonation.
Glad to cross off this want, great beer. This beer says everything it’s going to be on the label and nails it. I’d buy another bottle in the future.
