What's better than beer for breakfast? How about a little Morning Wood. This Imperial version of Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is aged in Bourbon barrels for months, lending smoothness to the smokey, salty, rich combo of maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and bacon.

It's not often when I can say that I find absolutely no faults in a beer. I have had somewhere around 4000 beers in my career and this one easily stands as one the best.

Intense coffee fudginess and bourbon on the nose. The fudge flavors really come through along with coffee cream, maple syrup, good quality vanilla and smoky bourbon notes. The flavors on this one all blend together so perfectly well making it a great beer for the morning or a delectable dessert treat.

My only regret is that this beer is not more regularly available as I would like to cellar some and share some more with friends in the future.

Enjoyed this one with friends around the campfire this weekend. Batch 1 and it held up very nicely! Lots of chocolate and a nice smooth bourbon barrel finish. Would love to try batch 2 and see how it compares.

Very disappointing. Weak base beer dressed in adjunct saturation. It's all the flavors everyone describes in the other reviews. Just a shitload of "natural" flavors. The most expensive drain pour for me so far in 2017.

Nice dark color, nearly pitch black., low to moderate viscosity. The nose had lots of coffee, little smoke, little maple, and even littler barrel. The taste really followed the nose - not much maple or bourbon barrel. This was a little thin.

I had super high expectations and was a little disappoint. I wanted more maple and defiantly more barrel. I love Wide Awake, but I have found the maple in that beer to be batch-y, so I assume that applies to this beer too. I will try this again anytime, hope my numbers get a little higher then.
