This is pretty much Maple Bacon Coffee Porter. It is extremely sweet as the original but it is better balanced by the higher booze. Pours thick and creamy, crazy to think it's a porter.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Not sure the bottle date.

Pours dark black with a light brown head that is about a finger high. Head slowly disappears leaving some nice lacing.

Aromas of chocolate, maple, coffee, and what I can only assume is bacon. Really interesting nose. Tough to describe properly.

Wow is this rich! Roasted malt, chocolate, salty bacon, maple syrup, and coffee notes. The description on the bottle mentions a smokey flavor and I'm picking that up also.

Medium body. A little on the thinner side compared to some stouts in this ABV range.

Overall a really intriguing and excellent beer! Was fun to review. The bacon makes your tastebuds do a double take after the first few sips. This thing is incredibly rich so be warned.

Mostly maple with some coffee. Has a metallic flavor to it. Reminds of waffle crisp cereal, you know, it’s not too bad but leaves an after taste that seems really fake maple. Did not enjoy this very much, prefer Hipster Brunch by quite a bit for a beer with these adjuncts. Finished half the bottle and then went on to something else.

It's been awhile since I experienced MBCP so was really excited to try this one. It does not disappoint.

Smells like pure maple syrup with just a hint of coffee. Was worried the maple may be over powering but the balance is just about perfect. Maple is present but not too sweet. The smokey roasty quality balances it out nicely.

Would definitely seek this out again.

There are so many other better stouts out there ... sad I traded for this POS.
