Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Black pour, offwhite head and no lace. Aroma as advertised:. Maple, bacon, roasted malt, black coffee, light anise notes. Vanilla and maple up front, light salt, roasted malt, whiskey, oak, roasted malt, black coffee... Complex yet not muddled at all. Medium body. Exceptional.

To smell Morning Wood is almost as pleasant as waking up with it. Strong wafts of vanilla, coffee, pancake syrup, and marshmallow - an amazing nose as it tradition from Funky Buddha! It pours black and viscous out of the bottle with a nice cocoa, tan foam head that recedes fairly quick. The taste is delicious. Maply syrup with coffee roast and it is a sweet beer but never cloying as the subtle heat from the barrel prevents it from being too sweet. It is very drinkable. Not motor oil viscosity but FB lists this beer as a porter while it can easily be a stout and nobody would flinch. Swirling it around it the glass, you can see how oily it is and it clings on the glass. World class is deserved!
