this thing is a beast, even more packed with all of these awesome flavors than the maple bacon is, but without the unifying and mellowing barrel elements of the morning wood. big thanks to my homie for bringing this one over for maple beer night, i had not ever seen it before, but have loved its two sister beers! its as thick and dense looking as it seems like it should be, near black but a high luster and some nice thick foamy tan head. it smells more like coffee than anything else, seemingly higher in the proportionality than in the maple bacon, a little less smoke and greasiness and all too, and still with a high maple sweetness element. there is a lot of nuance here too though like black pepper and fresh tobacco and molasses. its as complex in the flavor too, but we are all sort of stunned at how this isnt super insanely sweet. i mean its still way more sugary than you could reasonably drink a whole bomber of, but this is not over the top at all, despite the maple flavor still being really potent in here. nice almost burnt dark malt complexion to even it out, and all the coffee really helps. i didnt catch a bottle date, but the coffee tastes pretty fresh in here to me, and its intensity cuts some of the weight of the body and the sweetness, i like its contribution a lot. the bacon part of this is a little underwhelming, less obvious in the mix than in the base beer, light campfire smoke is all, this isnt meaty or anything to me. a really intense brew, but as good as any of the wildly flavored stouts these guys do. i dont think it needs the barrel. i enjoyed this edition a lot and it was a great end to our epic maple beer night!

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 11/4/17.

Pours dark, opaque, a little thick looking, with a one inch quickly dissipating head and spotty lacing. Aromas of maple, coffee, malt, bacon, caramel, light chocolate and cocoa, some smoke. Smells terrific. The taste also leads with maple, then malt, coffee, caramel, a little molasses, light chocolate and vanilla, somewhat smoky, maybe a hint of bacon. A little salty, not sweet. Smooth, a little creamy, well carbonated, a little bit of a lighter body feel for the style.

Terrific aroma, very good flavor. All the add-ins blend together really well. The maple and coffee are the stars here. If you have the chance when it’s around, grab a couple of bottles. Good price point, too.
