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.

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.

22 Bottle shared by YGTBSM. Highly pronounced smoky burnt bacon chocolate aroma. Intensely flavored, but not so sticky or resinous. Mellowed CO2. Makes the Schlenkerla beers seem tame and mild. Quite intense, the aroma is potent. Intense flavor as well, but quite drinkable. Maple syrup, burnt bacon tones dominate. Completely unique, World Class beer.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 651mL handbottled from the brewery with official label. Picture coming soon! Big thanks to ygtbsm94 via hopscotch for the bottle. The pour is a clear cola brown with thin, tan bubbles. No real head formation. Nose is very intense sweet coffee, hazelnut, Dunkin Donuts dunkaccino. Very rich and robust. Taste is thinner, lemon, watery, full of astringent coffee that gets a little harsh. Definitely some interesting coffee used and bound to be a big hit if ever bottled. Would like to retry with more carbonation. 5/16/2011 8/3/6/3/14=3.4

Flip-top, fresh growler thanks to NoSignsOfPain! Off the bat ridiculous nose. Huge Waffle House 6am aroma with an entire jug of Aunt Jemima. Taste actually delivers this time- awesome maple character with bitter coffee to balance. Nice palate with hop and coffee balance believe it or not. Drinkable, less sweet than you would imagine. Delivers. 12/16/2013 9/4/8/4/16=4.1

marcus (7549) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
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.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2011
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!
