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.

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.

2017 bomber into a teku.

L - I way overly agressively poured this beer. It resulted in 3 inches of mocha-khaki coloured head over a medium roast coffee looking cola body. It presents itself a little thin but. The head has the most inviting pearl multicolored prisim flashes to it.

S - is off the charts. When I cracked it I knew it was a 5. It's been sitting 3 feet away from me for 10 minutes now and I'm overwhelmed by the best beer aroma I've ever encountered. Loads of maple, FRESH coffee faint smoke, milk chocolate. This couldn't be named any more appropriately and this is unquestionably the most incredible nose I've ever smelled on a beer.

T - light roast coffee. Lightly buttered pancakes. One of those 1" x 1" pure caramel cube candies. Very mild smoke. Sweet. Not bad but somewhat of a let down from the nose. Wish it had the maple on the palate that it did the nose.

F - quite thin. High carbonation but watery body. Acceptable given its session range abv but not anything to be noted for.

O - mind blowing aroma. I could smell this all day, and I wouldn't mind drinking it for such either.

Value - traded for. I'd definitely pay in the $15 range for another of these though which is a lot considering the low(ish) abv

L: midnight black with a small head.

S: nice maple smell. Slight coffee. Some base porter. All melts together well. Breakfast smell definitely.

T: still a maple forward beer. Chocolate and coffee comes through more than the nose though. Great flavors.

F: great for the style. I like a little thicker beer. But it's a nice clean feel.

O: a very well balanced beer. Great in your face flavor.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with beige head that fades quickly. Incredible aroma with notes of maple syrup, smoked meats, caramel, vanilla. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet with mild bitterness. Flavors of maple syrup, smoked meats, toffee, caramel, coffee, vanilla, earthy notes. Pretty tasty but also very sweet. Complex well done beer. Good bottle to sip and share.
