Oly (27) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2014
As recommended, consumed at breakfast with a stack of chocolate chip pancakes. Pours a dark black with a surprising amount of carbonation. The aroma...oh, the aroma. It’s all there: maple, bacon, and coffee, with the roast notes you’d expect in a porter. The taste is the same, with maple sweetness dominating at the beginning and coffee bitterness at the end. The palate was a bit thin and fizzy for me. Overall, a fantastic beer. Perhaps this was just my own expectations, but I think I’d rate this much lower if I drank it in the evening by itself. It would just be too sweet. But in the morning with breakfast, it was perfect.

Almost black. Big tan head. Some lacing. Huge maple glazed donut aroma with a hint of coffee. Huge maple taste. Like eating a maple glazed donut. Some coffee in the back. No bacon. No smoke. Very cloying.

Growler shared by jeffo, thanks man. Black pour with a nice tan head. Aroma is one of the most powerful aromas I’ve ever gotten from a beer. Just opening the growler filled the room with an aroma of spices, curry, cinnamon, coffee and chili peppers. In the glass, the beer gave off woody aromas, rich dark chocolate, coffee and spices. Taste was spicy, curry and cocoa, not very sweet, nice bitterness. Palate was medium-light bodied with smooth carbonation.

Growler, shared by jeffo, thanks! Dark brown with a small persistent beige head and some lacing. Aroma is quite amazing as it is extremely powerful without being overwhelming. As soon as the growler was opened, the entire room was smelling like a restaurant during breakfast. The nose consist of maple syrup, meaty smoke presence (not exactly bacon, but close enough), fresh grounded coffee beans and roasted notes. Taste is also surprisingly flavorful for a 6.3 % abv beer with maple syrup (main flavor) along with meaty smoke, coffee beans, roasted malt, fudge, moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Body is a little less impressive as it’s not weak, but maybe a tad watery at times. Moderate carbonation. I’m impressed by how tasty this can be considering the relatively "low" abv. And, surprisingly, the balance isn’t bad either.

kermis (4793) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
Growler shared at the 2014 tasting in the Cellar of Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours near black with a thick medium tan head. Aroma of strong roast coffee, light bacon crisps, caramel, smoked wood. Flavor is over moderate sweet and bitter. Massive fudge coming out in the palate along with spicy aspects. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent!

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malts and maple. Sweet chocolate and moderately roasted malt flavors with coffee and a hint of sweet maple. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle shared by Dave. Aroma of maple syrup, coffee, and slight chocolate. Pours black with a small to medium brown head. Taste is sticky maple, almost a brandy, dark roasty coffee, and a nice chocolate malt back. Sticky taste but not a very thick mouthfeel. Nice roast on top of the sweet. Better than I expected and I had high hopes.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Dark brown, aroma has a lot of maple, quite a bit of coffee. Sweet coffee taste, subtle hint of maple, sweet chocolate, pretty good balance. Not the tire fire I was expecting. You really gotta like maple, as it comes out a lot and there’s a ton of coffee late.

mcberko (6016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out loads of maple and coffee, maybe a touch of smoke as well. Flavour is amazing, with notes of coffee and maple upfront - not so much bacon or smoke. The maple is perhaps the most prominent flavour, finishing on the maple and a tiny bit of coffee. Wonderful stuff.

Bottle@Gotheburg-tasting Apperance: Dark brown with a beige/brown head. Aroma: Coffee, Chocolate, Maple syrup. Taste: Chocolate, Coffee, Bacon, Maply Syrup, Hint of caramel. Palate: Medium carbonation and kind of rough/aggressive liquid. I really dig this. A beer for breakfast if there ever was one!
