Donít focus on the word bacon. I saw fistfights break out to get this beer only to see people be disappointed. Itís a nice beer but I didnít pick up any bacon flavors. Maple, yes, very much . Would pour this on my pancake ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pitch black, aroma is sweet and a bit pungent. Ok for beer extremists but pour me a Left Hand Milk Stout. Ugh.

Bottle shared at Haggertyís Fantasy Tasting. Black in color with short tan head. Big time breakfast aromas. Coffee... maple... fetch me some pancakes and eggs please. Flavor profile matches the nose. Mmmm bacon. Finishes with dry dark chocolate. Great label. Thanks Matt.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Growler @ The Bruery, shared by Sam. Black pour with a khaki head. Aroma lives up to the name. Smells like smokey bacon and maple syrup. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and plenty of coffee and roasted malt. Lots of caramel, too. Flavor is slightly bitter, but has plenty of maple, vanilla, and caramel sweetness. Smoke, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. Actually pretty good.

Thanks Paul for bringing thisrare treat to our Halloween whale tasting. Deep brown in color, not much head on the pour. Fantastic nose on this beer, great balance of maple and coffee roast. The bacon/smoke is ever so subtle....really wish I could give this aroma 11/10 pts. Taste deviates a little from the nose in that black coffee is the more prominent theme of the beer as opposed to the maple. There is still plenty of rich maple syrup though and some hints of smoke. Medium body with some astringency from the coffee. Really solid beer! I thought this was more hyped based, but it ended up being one of my favorite of the day. I ended up cleaning the bottle a day or two later for display and was blown away by how strong the maple scent still was in the empty bottle. Funky Buddha has a winner in this one.

fresh bottle courtesy of hopscotch, thanks a ton! this a great beer, no let down here. i liked this one better than the wide awake. very full and flavorful with a medium oily and rich body, the 6.3 makes this drinkable and very enjoyable. no cloying whatsoever, a slight bit of porter ffel in the finish, terrific stuff all the way around. smells amazing.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 It is everything I wanted in flavor and aroma. Aroma brings a ton of maple syrup at first, and then after settling for a bit a ton of smooth roasted coffee dominates. The balance of maple overtaking the smokiness of the bacon with the coffee coming in the middle was perfect on the flavor. There are delicious hazelnut creamy coffee notes as well. Poured dark black with decent tan head.

32oz Growler from ... the man himself, funkybuddha. Shared 12-16-2010 with friends.

First off -- awesome growler. Slight but promising hiss when I open the top. Pour is a deep brown, large bubbles from a vigorous pour mixing with a thin but dense head that rises up after it hits the glass. Aroma is an intense coffee with hints of brown sugar and smoke. Taste is terrific -- while still cold itís a rich coffee with a chocolately finish and a touch of smoke. The maple comes out as it warms with a rich maple sugar element coming up in the finish and the coffee mellowing out to let some of the sweetness and just a touch of heat through. Mouthfeel is low carbonation (expected for the growler), but rich and verging on the edge of viscous. Supports the roasty coffee edge well. Smoke comes through more on the nose than on the tongue. When I finish the glass the aroma of maple and bacon persists... gotta clean this before moving on. Drinkability is phenomenal.

Strong notes of bacon, dark roasted grain and maple....flavor is much the same with hints of chocolate and pretty intense. Mouth feel is medium body with low carbonation. Overall, outstanding brew!!!!

Pours really dark brown with a tan head. Has a maple and celery smell to it. Has an odd celery sweet maple taste. This one is just to odd for me.
