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.

Absolutely incredible nose: tons of coffee and maple, a bit of wood and molasses. Brown sugar, smoke, chocolate malt.

Flavor is coffee dominant, with a wonderful maple complement. Slightly woody from the maple as well, and touches of cola, chocolate, and brown sugar.

Smooth and balanced feel, lively.

This is a damn good beer, although I don't get much bacon. I love the coffee forward aspect, and the maple is potent without being overpowering.

Fresh 2017 bomber poured into a snifter. Notes of syrup and chocolate dominate the notes. The flavor is nicely balanced parts of syrup, bacon, coffee, and porter. Loved it and was even more surprised it wasn't barrel aged.

Poured a jet-black color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of coffee, maple and smokiness. Nice rich coffee flavor, a touch of both maple and bacon-like smokiness.

Pours like a dark roast coffee. Light brown head. No lacing. Aroma is pancakes and maple syrup. The slighttttest bit of char/smoke. Taste is coffee, chocolate and maple syrup. Feel is light and smooth. Light carbonation. Overall, this is a very good beer. Tastes like breakfast. I honestly was slightly disappointed with the lack of bacon flavor. Would probably have gotten a better review if bacon wasn't so prominently featured in the advertising of this beer. Still, very good especially if you're looking for a maple porter.

2017 22 oz bottle was poured into a tulip.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything.

Smell: Sweet maple, chocolate, roasted coffee, and smoke.

Taste: Maple blends well with the smokey, hammy, roasted, and chocolate flavors. Some sweetness and bitterness in there too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, maple sweetness, roasted bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid flavored porter. More smokey and hammy flavor would have been cool though.
