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.

pours out a brownish color, dark in the glass. dense and creamy kahki head with soapy bubbles on top, minimal lacing.

omg nose on this is off the hook ... creamy chocolate, roasty coffee, huge sticky sweet maple, smells creamy and roasty and sappy sweet, reminiscent of brown sugar kissed crepes doused in maple syrup - cup of coffee on the side. a true breakfast beer. taste pretty much follows. very soft and smooth, buttery maple syrup, cream, sweet chocolate, mellow roasted coffee. very light-medium mouthfeel but also velvety smooth. overall an absurdly aromatic and really enjoyable brew, hard not to chug!!

Absolutely dominated by maple on the aroma with a little bit of coffee and chocolate.
It's dark roast with sweet sticky maple. I'm getting some smokiness from the bacon but it's not intense.
Overall, get this beer. It's outstanding.

Matte black with a bubbly tan had that thins out fairly quickly.

Having this long after I've had the imperial version in Wide Awake, this original version with lower ABV is surprisingly more bacony, with more supporting flavors, as well as a more drinkable feel, yet is obviously thinner. I'm also finding it less sweet, still with that sticky maple syrup, coffee, chocolate, and lightly roasted malt.

Hmm, I think I prefer this version more actually.

Pours black. Short, thick, light brown head that lasts shortly.

Smells big maple syrup, coffee, chocolate and smokey hints.

Tastes less maple syrup than smell, more coffee, roast malt. Followed by light chocolate and touches of smoke. Finish is semi sweet with a maple and light smoke linger. Fuller body and creamy medium carbonation.
