A luscious black pour with a thin angry red head in my mini snifter.

Aroma is big maple syrup right out front, with trailing notes of coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, sausage, vanilla, and oak.

Flavor is strong, but has no real focus. It consists of lots of grease drippings, cinnamon coffee, maple syrup, oak, black tea, and slight medicinal cherry cough syrup. There's some huge cloying flavors going on here which isn't a term I use often so maybe it's not hitting me right tonight.

Feel is nicely carbonated, with a slightly rough feel, some whiskey dryness, and slight roast dryness.

Overall, for some reason, this is coming off way too sweet for me. The flavors do not mesh as well together. I know I don't like this nearly as much as Maple Bacon Coffee, but it's still decent. Not sure if I'll be putting this on my shopping list or not. I'll let it sit overnight in the bottle and try again tomorrow.

This beer was amazing. It had a robust maple flavor. I got a very generous pour while waiting in line for dark lord. For me this was one of the most notable beers I had that day.

The bottle art – gold on black, or maybe copper on black – just screams class. Maybe that justified the $29.99 bottle price. Maybe we were in a place in FL that preyed on clueless tourists like us. Maybe I’m dumb for buying it. But I did, so my wife & I may as well drink it

Black. Just what I was looking for. Smells like liquefied sugar mixed liberally with maple syrup & then served in a delicately fluted glass. I like.

Morning Wood is good, though rarely productive. Actually, brushing up against old age, it’s usually more like 4:30 AM wood. Though I suppose that’s technically morning. But it’s annoying to have to wait for it to take a…after midnight reviews probably aren’t the best idea. Everything is amped up from the rather staid & dull Maple Bacon Coffee Porter: strong maple syrupy sweetness impregnated with brown sugar, gentle backing of bourbon, vanilla, mild roast. Only the bacon is missing; there might be a slug of salt in there, but it’s faint. Thick. Lovely. 22 ounces is really a single serving.

This is maple, maple, maple maaaaplicious! Lovely use of the tree sap & barrels, which vaults this bulked up version of MBCP far above its mundane origins. Excellent beer.
