Thanks to johngalt for this. Pours jet black almost no head. Nose is huge maple syrup. Tastes like a maple bar with a great coffee finish. The saltiness of the bacon is pretty subdued but still apparent. Nicely done

22 ounce bottle. Thanks to William! Pours almost black with a nice fluffy khaki head. Nice aroma of maple, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is maple, coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla, and a touch of caramel. Didn’t get any bacon or smoke. This deserves it’s rating for sure. Glad they bottle this stuff so I have at least a chance to snag one every so often. Will try and have a bottle of this available all of the time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. The aroma has intense maple syrup, a lot of coffee and a hint of smoke. Pleasant and really impressive aroma. The taste is also really heavy on the maple syrup taste - but without a cloying sweetness. It manages to catch the maple taste, and not all the sugar. Also coffee, caramel and roasted malts backed up by a light acidity. Couldn’t drink a bomber of this, but a really pleasant and impressive beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 (2x on tap and growler fill @ Mikkeller & Friends) The aroma of this one is insanely great even when poured at a too cold temperature at Mikkeller and Friends. I just love how the maple syrup, coffee and chocolate notes blend together into something that reminds me of great chocolate confectionary or perhaps an American breakfast. The smoke/bacon is not immediately obvious so I guess it’s quite subdued and perhaps it just blends into the overall aroma picture so well. The appearance is pitch black with a relatively small but intense toffee head that fades into a thick film with an even thicker lace ring. Tasting it yields an experience like drinking liquid confectionary although at the same time not cloying at all. Flavour is very close to the aroma, carbonation is soft, body is full yet lighter than the aroma would suggest. Finish is moderately sweet but balanced out by some more polyphenolic chocolate/coffee-roast bitterness. This is a well balanced masterpiece.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of bacon, maple sirup, coffee, and chocolate. The flavor os sweet with notes of maple sirup, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee, leading to a bitter finish. Pancakes and coffee in a glass - love it.
