I'm cleaning out my beer fridge as I prepare to move from Florida to Wisconsin. So now I get to enjoy all the thick, rich, flavorful, high-ABV beers I've been aging over the past few years.

I have only been holding onto this one for a few months.

22-oz bottle into porter/stout glass

A - 3 fingers of dark tan over a body of pitch black

S - sweet maple syrup, maybe a touch of salty bacon, coffee/roasted malts

T - maple, chocolate, coffee, touch of smoke, caramel sweetness, salt (I guess that's the bacon), earthy and herbal hops

M - syrupy thick full body, low carbonation

O - This is just an excellent dessert beer.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with a nice mocha head with good lacing. Incredible aroma of coffee, maple syrup and cooking bacon. Smells like breakfast. Taste is coffee, maple syrup, caramel, toffee and a little chocolate. Full bodied and clingy to the palate. Absolutely incredible beer.
