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.

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.

Came a deep dark cola color with that tinge of red with a creamy deep beige head that never really settled,good deep color and a good looking head.The aromas were just amazing,deep sweet maple and mild smoky pork wich you really can't go wrong with,chocolate and brown sugar notes also came into play,everything you want in a porter.Dark roast coffee cuts thru some of the big brown sugar and maple flavors with a smokiness in the finish that never lets this beer get to sweet,no alcohol sweetness either wich makes everything come together very well.This beer lives up to billing,everything plays a role in the nose and palate,great stuff.

Pours black with dark brown around the edges, with a nice thumb sized tan head that leaves some light lace.

Aroma is nice roasted malts, lots of sweet maple syrup, good smoke notes with lighter coffee and toffee mingled through out. Guessing the smokey notes is suppose to be bacon because no real bacon notes. But smells wonderful and complex especially since its only 6.4%

Taste is roasted, again good sweet maple upfront, nice chocolate and toffee mingled, really on the sweeter side. Finish is lingering roasted sweetness, lighter coffee along with the smoke notes and light salty hints. Again no real bacon but its pretty favorable for the lower abv.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy but still only medium body even though its smooth. Carbonation level is on the lower side of medium.

Overall it's a enjoyable sweet porter with good smokey notes and maple syrup thrown in for good measure. Defiantly worth a try and a revisit.
