22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a deep opaque brown with a finger of tan head. Really nice looking. The aroma and flavor are mostly the same in notes and in character - maple on the initial and finish, dark chocolate, smoky pork (bacon), brown sugar, toast, and a shot of espresso in the middle. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel that finishes sticky. Thereís absolutely no balance in this at all in the nose or on the palate. Itís like 1-2-3-4 in terms of picking out the individual elements. Theyíre all really enjoyable, but certainly not blended together. Would that even be possible? I donít know, but Iím wondering if Iíd like that version more or less because I liked all the pieces here. Fun beer.

Large brown head with good retention and little lace. Head settles into a thin sheet and just stays there. Black bodied brew. Maple aromas pop ya first then the heavily roasted coffee climbs outta there,hint metallic, nice. Body is med/full, bit chewy and nicely creamy and oily on the palate, almost silky, fine carbonation.Nice,dry,chewy, over roatsy coffee flavors, bittersweet chocolate, glancing maple notes, slight smoke (bacon?) caramel and some black malt notes. Dry finish is roasty tough and large with coffee. Man i love maple and this beer delivered. Blended nicely with the roasty coffee notes. Well done FB! No let down here. Many thanks to CraftCommander for hookin me up with a brew iv,e been hunting for for a while now. Thank Marco!

Bomber, shared in line at R&D release. Lots of coffee a touch of maple and bacon do come through. And actual bacon, not smoke like some other bacon beers. Pretty good stuff, definitely legit.

Big maple nose on top of coffee and very light salty smoke. Dark brown almost black pour tan head. Flavors of lots of maple. Permeates throughout. Coffee and chocolate underneath. Very light salty smoke. Maple lingers. Good beer. A lot of damn maple. Smooth interesting unique.
