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 black as Satan's heart. Rich thick world class head volume, lacing and quite outstanding retention.

It smells as good as it looks. The nose is world class. The base is sweet chocolate, toffee and caramel with a nice dose of maple. The coffee notes are gently subtle as is the light touch of smoke. The smoke is most noticeable on the exhale. An exquisitely complex aroma with a very small roast aspect.

Heavy medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel that comes across as quite smooth. The carbonation / body balance is outstanding. The middle is lightly effervescent while the finish is slightly prickly and thus helps the body.

The flavor profile is world class and expertly presented in a layered fashion. Bitterness is very low as are the roast aspects. Coffee is slightly more apparent than roast and presents early and lingers past the middle. The middle is sweet - caramel, toffee and surprisingly less chocolate than the nose implied. After the initial sweet salvo, maple emerges and flows through the finish to linger along with the coffee. notes.
