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.

Poured into a 16 oz Snulip glass, not sure when it was bottled and 9.2% ABV. Pours a very attractive slick black with a 2 plus finger dark tan head that leaves thin wisps of lace at near room temperature.

Smell is maple, dark chocolate covered coffee beans, vanilla, and a little smoked bacon.

Taste follows but more aggressive than the nose. Maple, bacon, vanilla, and coffee grounds.

Mouthfeel is a big medium, but slightly creamy, gentle carbonation, a tad dry as it should be, and excellent drinkability.

Overall I drank this near room temperature and I think that helped to give it that nice creamy feel, but is just a really good beer, that I would love to have again. Thanks @Ocalafox for this bomber.

Excellent beer. Most beers don't pull off the bacon and/or maple idea...this one does!
