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.

Pours black with ruby edges at 56 degrees; two fingers of creamy dark tan foam; some cap retention yields to a solid ring and moderately heavy sheets of lace; medium legs on swirl. Aromas of maple, toasted brown bread and sweet plum. Maple up front followed by molasses, toasted brown bread, lite char, brown sugar, sweet plum and a little vanilla; chocolate-maple candy finish. Medium full smooth velvety feel; moderate carbonation. World class and as advertised; great look and feel for a big Porter; not syrupy or cloying, yet satisfies my sweet tooth; just the right amount of maple; no hint of the alcohol. Bottled 10/4/17.

One of the most perfectly tasting and aromatic stouts/porters I've ever had. Toffee, chocolate, maple take the lead and just a hint of bourbon and coffee. Really well done and will make me reconsider some of the other BA stouts I thought were near perfection that clearly are not in comparison to this brew.

Whoa buddy. Somehow I hadn't heard of this one and ordered it because it sounded good. Well, it's better than CBS by a fair margin. Smells better. Fuller bodied. More maple. Absolutely killer beer
