Breakfast all day long!!! The aroma is smoky and sweet, not too much coffee. The coffee is more in the taste and combined with the maple, you canít stop drinking it. The body is syrupy and very dark. Make this beer, one of your last beer of the night. This taste will linger for a long time, which is great for people who love breakfast.

(Growler thanks to ericandersnavy) espresso brown pour with a dark tan head. Nose of sweet chocolate, rich coffee, vanilla, maple, Belgian waffles, super rich, smells SO GOOD!! Taste of rich coffee, maple, waffles, sweet chocolate. The body is slightly thin but a delicious coffee linger is here. Creamy in the finish and quite toasty. This is an excellent sweet stout!!

Poured from a sealed growler from a friend that got this sent to them from the FBL directly!!!! Poured in a tasting tulip. pours a pitch black with minimal head. was poured pretty soft since it was a tasting glass. the nose is amazing... light roasted coffee followed by a hint a sweetness and a tad of smoke. the taste is amazing. all of the different aspects of the beer come through at different stages of the taste. First you get the coffee on the front/ initial taste. Then as it moves back in the mouth the maple sweetness takes over ( but not in an over powering way like a creme brulee) then after you swallow and breath a little but the smoke (savory bacon) hits the back of the throat! This is one amazing beer for sure! Glad i was able to try it.

Funky Buddha maple bacon porter. Half gallon growler fill from Eric... Pours a dark stouty reddish brown pour with a minimal light tan head... Aroma is assertive with coffee, vanilla, and vivid maple notes... Flavors are much of the same with a smooth vanilla, roast, and lingering maple character that is delectable degree. Body is l VHF to medium with a good deal of roast and semi-acrid touch . Nice. 9/4/8/4/17

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of smoke, caramel and chocolate. About the same taste-wise. medium bodied and relatively smooth. Very interesting.

In short: The name says it all, and it is INTENSE. And also inexplicably excellent.
How: 22oz bottle. Early 2011 batch. Hilarious label. Consumed fresh approximately one week after it was bottled. Bottle sent to me by hopscotch, thanks a lot Eric.
The look: Near black body topped by a persistent small beige head
In long: Intense nose (really INTENSE) that is like a grandma freshly baked sugar pie with your nose one inch away from the pie, a lot of maple syrup, a lot of smoked pull pork. Oh man, I literally could smell my glass two feet away. Not much of the advertised coffee on the nose though. Taste follows suit with maple syrup, freshly baked homemade crusty sugar pie, smoked pork and then adds a sip of cold black coffee, notes of iced-tea, cigarette butt and a good amount of caramel fudge and chocolate fudge. No hops presence whatsoever. There is so much intense flavors to distract my palate that the sweetness didnít bother me at all. Reading my description the beer sounds gross. But in reality this was pretty damn good. A successful exercise in excess. This is an over-the-top beer that I wonít soon forget, Iím sure I would have a lot of great memories of beer if it didnít make me forget so much stuff.

look: 4 smell: 4.5 taste: 4.5 feel: 4.5 overall: 5 A- Pours a Dark brown color with a small tan head that dissapates quickly S-WOW, the smell is great. Smeels of coffee. almost like a starbucks frappachino that you buy in those glass jars at gas station. You can smell the maple also. No bacon smell coming though. OVerall the smell is so delightful T-Coffee flavor hits you right up front then the smooth maple comes in second then it finishís with a saltness. A saltness thats like cured meat. Which must be the bacon. M-Medium bodied, has a thick mouthfell D- OVerall this is an outstanding porter, not too watered down like some and not too coffee flavored like others. And the savory saltness is something ive never tasted in a beer. The only complaint i have is i wish the bacon flavor was alittle more present, But overall this was an outstanding porter ad glad i was able to trade for it. IM proud thatthis beer could be my 100th Review. Please try and get this beer, u wont be dissapointed

22oz - Courtesy of Hopscotch. Thanks for sharing, Eric! Black, tan creamy head. Bacon wrapped french toast aromas swirl on a warm buttery sweet maple syrup and coffee tone throughout. A true breakfast lovers treat as flavors are tightly wound on notes of espresso, salty smoked bacon, and hints of Vermont maple candy. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smoked maple finish. Fantastic beer...

sarro (122) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2011
22oz bottle with a great label shared by iceicebaby, thanks Sean! As soon as this beer was uncapped I smelled itís sweet smokey aroma. Pouring a dark, dark brown with a two finger tan head, itís aroma consisted of sweet maple syrup, a bit of smoke, and TONS of deep roasted coffee. Taste was dark chocolate and multiple layers of deep roasted coffee. The finish was extra (nearly dry) dark chocolate with an almost chalky mouth feel with low carbonation and a slickness from a cold serving temp. A great "sweet stout" and I easily polished off 6 oz or more.

dark brown, thin cream ring. Heavy coffee nose with a lot of unfermented sugar, light chocolate. Flavor is heavy milk chocolate, light coffee, light a chocolate dessert from Baskin Robbins. GT said Duncancino, he would probably know. Thick, creamy body, lingering sweetness through the finish, masks any other base malt. They got the "sweet" part of "sweet stout" right.
