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.

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.

One of the best porters around. It won't disappoint. Nose is all maple. Taste is mostly maple with salty bacon up front. Solid balance.

So, did you skip breakfast again? As long as you're part of the day drinking contingency, the Funky Buddha team has a plan "B" that's most likely going to be your breakfast blessing in disguise. Their porter with the flavors of maple, bacon and coffee will satisfy both your hunger and your thirst.

Maple Bacon Coffee Porter pours a medium, garnet brown, hazy and frothy with a sepia coffee creme. Those maple aromas flow across the nose with the perfume of Denny's breakfast beckoning. Coffee, nutty, chocolate and smoky aromas come wave after wave while its taste is savory and sweet, circulating around pancake syrup and a side of coffee.

As the natural caramels, toffees and nutty flavors wrap around each and every tastebud, its decadence caresses the tongue in a sultry breakfast-in-bed kind of way. As the sweetness seeps into the throat, the residual taste of fresh brewed columbian coffee, toasted pecan, bran, light chocolate and those campfire flavors suggests something earthy, robust and even meaty.

Medium full on the palate, the porter's lavish taste is carried in a body that's quite reasonable, drinkable and effortless on the palate. Lingering sweetness and breakfast complexities mask the taste and feel of alcohol and offers a highly satisfying semisweet, malty dry taste that resonates long and broadly in aftertaste, making us miss only a side of orange juice to cap off the breakfast, er... session.

On tap at a Funky Buddha event at World of Beer on 6/29/17.

Smells and tastes like drinking maple syrup with hints of bacon and coffee - delicious! One of the best beers I've had in a while.
