Notes: Rise and shine, buttercup - it's time for breakfast. This imperial version of our infamous Maple Bacon Coffee Porter adds some girthy gravity to the the smokey, salty, rich combo of maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and bacon.

L - 1/2 finger mocha head dissolves quickly, leaving behind a cola-black body.

S - maple syrup, vanilla, bacon, chocolate chip cookies. Smells like the best breakfast ever.

T - maple-spiked cold-brew coffee. Bacon bits, tons of vanilla, smoke, liquid chocolate, anise. Low bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium-full body with lower carb.

O - breakfast in a glass (er, mug).

Bottle to snifter. Thanks DC for sharing.

LOOK: jet black, medium creamy beige head, excellent retention with creamy lacing.
AROMA: bacon first, then maple takes over. Roasted malt and coffee sneak in in patches. Smells like breakfast as Jen says. Just fantastic.
TASTE: maple and coffee on the forefront, nice sweet and savory mix.
FEEL: Silky smooth, hint of astringency in finish.

Wow. Very impressed with this all around, especially the aroma.

Must seek out more as well as the other similar variants.

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights at 56 degrees; thick tan foam of mixed bubbles; solid ring, long lasting cap; moderately heavy lacing; thin legs. Strong maple syrup nose; faint whiff of smoke. Flavors of maple, coffee, sweet toffee and caramel candy base; lite roast, char. Full body, slick feel; very little warmth for 9.5%; moderate minus carbonation. Overall the maple has held up well; I could smell the maple wafting from the glass at least a foot plus away; not too adjuncty; the bacon is more a liquid smoke taste, but the dominant taste and aroma is Mrs. Butterworth’s. Funky Buddha excels at flavored pastry stouts, and this beer is one of its best.

Pours black with a half inch khaki head that leaves very little lacing. Smells is very maple syrup forward with bacon, coffee and toast coming in the background. Tastes of maple syrup, coffee, molasses, toast, bacon, roasted malts, vanilla, milk chocolate and roasted malts. Full bodied especially for a porter, lightly carbonated, thick and creamy mouth feel, mildly bitter finish.

Pours black with two fingers of khaki foam that retains really well. Aroma is heavy maple syrup and coffee with robust notes of roasty, toasty, bready malts and spry vanilla beans just beyond. It smells like a fresh slice of toast, dressed and drenched by maple syrup, while a roasty, steaming cup of coffee sits just aside. Flavor profile is dense and rich, hitting notes of roasty, toasty, nutty, caramely, bready malts, and rich, boisterious notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla bean and maple syrup. It smell and drinks sweet, but not to a point of being cloying, or sickly. Mouth feel is velvety and creamy, with a thick consistency. Overall, a thick and sugary beer, that while it lands more in the dessert beer category, does present itself exceptionally well as balanced and filling.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 22oz bottle.

Black in color with no light penetration. There’s a fingernail of brown covering nearly all of the top. Light lacing. The aroma is of coffee, maple syrup, and bacon fat. I’m tasting maple syrup, dark chocolate, coffee, and smoky bacon fat. The dark chocolate and coffee really linger after the swallow. The mouth is oily, viscous, and lightly sticky and chewy.
