Smooth, tasty, and delicious smelling. What else can I say? Basically if a stout and a maple syrup covered pancake joined forces and had a baby together you'd get this beer. Would've liked a hint of bacon, but overall I can't complain.

Bottled 04/19/18. Soooo much better than MBCP, but I’m blaming the fact that the base beer wasn’t fresh when I had it two days ago. This is not only “fresher,” but holds up much better in the bottle. This is how I expected the original to taste and smell.

This is almost literally like being at a fancy donut shop and taking their maple bacon donut, some of their espresso/dark roast, and putting both in a blender. Then adding some deliciously roasted malt, a bit of earthy wood, and some booze. Such a sweet treat!

Today is the big day. Hoping for good news soon.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark, mahogany brown color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, off white, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very enticing aroma of maple syrup, coffee, bacon, malt, caramel, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of coffee (not as much as I expected), lots of maple syrup, a bit of chocolate (not overly prevalent), mild notes, some malt, and a hint of caramel. This is a big, complex flavor. It's a little weird and chalky in the finish, but it definitely does its job. It's sweet, rich, and quite delicious.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat overly dry finish. Full-bodied.

O: Despite some very minor flaws, this is a well done beer. Drinkable.

Appearance - The beer poured brownish black in color with a tan head.

Smell - Maple and coffee dominated the nose.

Taste - As expected, the nose was very maple coffee forward. I was disappointed as there was not much bacon. As the taste continued, the coffee grew more bitter in back.

Mouthfeel - There was so much sticky sweetness with little carbonation.

Overall - It goes without saying that this is a great beer.

Dark with a rich creamy tan head. Smells of coffee, smoke, maple and chocolate. Tastes follow the smell. Really sweet and a lot of coffee with the smokiness. Finishes with s char bitterness. Delicious beer.

Blind review. Sent in NBS BIF#8 from roguer. Poured into tulip. Bottled 4/19/18
Pours jet black, rocky mocha head of just about an inch.
Nose is maple cookies (my stepmom makes these maple cookies, they don’t taste good but they smell amazing), vanilla, hazelnut? Or nuts in general?
Upon first sip, maple for sure, like a lot of maple, maybe more maple, sweetness, strawberry (could be from sweetness) vanilla, lactose sweetness, smoke, pancakes (malts) mild roast, mild coffee. Me trying to breakdown the maple syrup-caramel and/or brown sugar.
As it warms, strawberry and nuttiness disappears, smoke and slight char become more present.
The body is medium but smooth with a lingering maple sweetness at the finish.
From the pour, I let this warm up for 45 minutes or so. I’ve decided that it’s some sort of adjunct (maple bomb) imperial stout/porter from Funky Buddha.

03/2015 - so much maple syrup on the nose, plus coffee and bready aromas; incredible iced coffee-like flavors, lovely maple syrup yet not sickly sweet, some lactose, and a bit of salt on the palate; roasty bitterness finishes it off.

From a fresh growler:
Look: Black with tan head/lacing

Taste: Tasty with hints of sweet maple (think breakfast syrup), bacon, salted caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, malts.
Feel: Heavy body; smooth.
Overall: Excellent. Recommended.
