Dark as you would expect for a coffee stout with a very minimal head.

Nose is largely coffee right out of the refrigerated bottle with more maple coming through as it warms.

Great coffee taste, but I'm not getting as much maple as a lot of other reviewers. Certainly as it warms the maple comes around, but it isn't quite the maple bomb that regular MBCP was in my opinion. Decent dark chocolate notes, but nothing too fudgey like far too many other big stouts seem to tend toward.

More thin than I was expecting, until I remembered that it's a Funky Budda beer. I've yet to be blown away by the mouthfeel of any of their beers, and this is no exception. I wouldn't go so far as to call it watery, but it isn't chewy like a BCBS or Abraxas.

Overall, it's solid. I think I prefer the regular MBCP's ability to showcase the flavors over this brew's more alcohol centric approach. If I were in Florida and saw it for sale I would buy it, but I don't know that I would trade for a bottle again.

I'm a big fan of Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and was really looking forward to trying the imperial version. Tremendous flavors - it is a maple syrup bomb, but still nicely balanced. Could use a little more thickness in the feel, but that is nitpicking. Can't wait to try the BA version!
