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.

Bottled on 1/16/17; drank in a stout glass on 2/22/17; drank in honor of being my 500th rated beer on BA; this beer clearly brings massive aroma and flavor overtones of maple with more subtle smoky and coffee aroma/flavor; a great beer overall but the carbonation seemed to be a little lacking for my tastes and more so, this beer was surprisingly very thin for the sweetness

2017 vintage.

Looks great.
Smells like Maple syrup, nothing else.
Tastes the same. Maple syrup. No Coffee, definitely no Bacon.

I don't get the hype? If it was just sold as a Maple Sout then its great. But as it is its a one sided beer.

I have 3 fresh bottles for trade hit me up

Poured into a wine glass. Wow - one of the best aromas I've encountered, with a striking blend of coffee, cocoa, maple syrup, and smoked bacon. Not overdone and balanced. The taste was exactly on point. An interesting and delicious beer. Full bodied and slightly sweet.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark brown to black body with a nice fingers worth of khaki brown head.

Aroma: TONS of sweet maple syrup on the nose, along with coffee, chocolate and a hint of smokiness.

Taste: Oh my! Coffee is pronounced on the front with hints of cocoa and maple syrup and smokiness on the end. Tastes like breakfast in a glass!

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, plenty of smokiness and sweet coffee that just lasts on the palate.

Overall: For sure lives up to the hype! Plenty of flavors that compliment each other: bitter coffee, sweet maple syrup, smoke and roastiness....Just plain delicious.

Look:Black with two finger light head that receded quickly.
Smell:Charcoal, smoky, chocolate with a touch of espresso, but it lingers.
Taste:Intense, but not boozy at all. Charcoal, s'mores, chocolate, and maple.
Feel:Light and creamy.
Overall:Excellent, worth the hype. The s'mores taste runs the show.
