COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coffee Porter.
Evoking a complete diner-style breakfast in a glass, Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is a complex beer with a multitude of flavors at play. It pours an opaque ebony brew with a frothy tan head. Aromas of sticky maple syrup, coffee, and cream creep forth from the glass. The mouth feel is luxuriously creamy, with layers of sweet malt, toffee, and roast giving way to waves of smoke, coffee, and salted chocolate. It finishes sticky, rich, and sweet, with the flavor of maple syrup lingering pleasantly on the tongue.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 At thomas’. Pours black with light lacing. Aroma is maple syrup, fatty bacon, chocolate, marshmallow. Taste is smooth maple, chocolate, watery, nice. Additional rating at GABF 2013: Pours very dark black with grey medium sized head. Aroma is huge burst of flavors, huge bacon, some maple, roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, sugar, syrup, molasses, caramel, finish is quick and little cleaner than I could like, the taste is a little thin and a little bit of a let down compared to the aroma. 4.1

Multiple pours at GABF. Pour is deep brown/black in appearance with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Huge maple syrup aroma - kind of ridiculous how much it smells like sweet maple syrup - big notes of coffee, earthiness, and deep roast, as well. Taste is very much like the smell - sweet maple syrup upfront, some vanilla, cocoa, a hint of smoke, brown sugar, and rich espresso with deep roastiness on the backend. Thick syrupy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Literally smells amazing and has the taste to back it up. Like bourbon maple syrup covered pancakes with a side of fresh espresso. WOW! This was a treat and probably my favorite beer at GABF.

Tap at GABF. Oh this is a good one. Great nose of maple with a hint of smokiness. Each of the three flavors comes in its own way with the maple very subdued and mellow. This is a great beer and extremely drinkable.

750 ml bottle - kindly shared by FX Cannelle, sampled with Dennoman and Romain VeryNiceGuy at the pre-BBF13 tasting. Surprise of the evening! Pourse intensly black with light yellowy head. Complex aroma, more like a bouquet of mocca, coffee, roasted hazelnuts, caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Light body with a light sweetness in perfect balance with the roasty notes. Deep chocolate taste (bittersweet) with afternoon coffee alike taste. This is a great beer; such intensity of aroma and taste vs. the light body of the beer and such a looooong finish. Truly amazing. I never thought a porter could have so much depth and complexity.

It’s a damn shame that more people don’t get to try this beer, hell I live right near the brewery and have only had it on a couple of occasions. It is just remarkable how well the bacon integrates with the maple sweetness without tasting like some Schlenkerla beer dipped inside a bottle of Dirty Bastard. The coffee is what puts it over the top, sealing the deal as a well-rounded and nuanced beer with excellent aroma and great flavor.
