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.

Bottle shared by cmonster. Pours black with a thin beige head and a maple and coffee aroma. Smells like breakfast and tastes like a delicious beer pancake with a chocolate finish. If you use your imagination, there is enough smoke and roasted malt to emulate bacon. Very complex and tasty.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has an incredible strong smoky maple nose with some brown sugar sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy dark caramel sweetness before a drier roasty bitter balance and lots of lingering maple flavor in the finish. A very unique and well-made brew.

Bottle, pours very black, slightly tan on the edges with off white head. Aroma has big notes of maple, mocha, chocolate, coffee, some slight ash and smoke, charcoal notes even, with just a hint of medicinal. Taste is delicious, with notes of coffee and maple in the forefront, slight smoke and char, ashes and almost a hint of cigarette butt, but very nice and sticky maple with some molasses, toffee. Delicious, drinkable, and worth the hype.

Many thanks to Armin for bringing the bomber over! Poured very deep brown, near black, with a creamy cap of dark tan head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up a whole heap of coffee and maple, and came across on the sweeter side.. a touch of smoke represented the bacon on the nose.. loved the coffee/maple interplay. The flavor opened with syrupy maple and molasses, backed by a heavy dose of cold toddy.. maple surrounds and coats the mouth, leading to a long, sweet, warming finish.. bacon saltiness cut through the sweetness well.. very tasty stuff! Medium-bodied on the palate with a slow-ish feel from the maple.. nice carbonation.. totally delicious stuff!

Special 22 oz bomber of the brew. Can smell the coffee immediately from popping the top. It pours into my pint glass a really dark brown with some lighter brown to even red highlights. The head is gone pretty quickly. The aroma is heavy on the coffee but there is a definite maple presence in the nose. The taste is a lot of the same. Coffee and tons of roasted malts but a very nice maple sweetness. Slight hint of smoke in there as well. The mouthfeel is great. Full body and creamy. For someone that doesn’t like coffee I really enjoy this beer.

Bottle thanks to hopscotch. Last beer before my 32nd birthday. Wow, this one really lives up to the hype. Perfect nose of freshly brewed coffee, maple, roast chocolate malt, vanilla and a light smokiness. Taste is the same. Well balanced. I wish the bacon was more prominent, but I can’t really complain as this is an exceptional beer.

Courtesy of northernbrews: The aroma consists of maple syrup, burnt coffee, and light bacon. The burnt coffee is a bit harsh. It pours a dark brown with a minimal off-white that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with maple syrup and a touch of chocolate. There is a faint bacon flavor in the background. The finish has an increased maple syrup presence and some burnt coffee grounds. Overall the coffee is a tad harsh and burnt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
