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.

Sampled during RBWG Tampa 2015. Brown pour with a small tan head. Nose is complex, engaging. Bright espresso. Sweet shocks of maple nut bar. Some vanilla. Rocky road fudge. Flavor is similar but with a nice smoked malt element. Glazed donut. Great harmony between what could be an overpowering, unruly set of flavors. Full body, supple. Oily.

Smells like breakfast -- maple, bacon, sweet marshmallow latte, maple donuts, nutty coffee and toast. Dear lord. There’s more smokiness in the flavor, along with peanutty roasted malts. Medium roast coffee, moderately bitter cacao, soft vanilla, buttery bread. Lingering coffee bean roastiness. Dry, soft finish is surprising and welcome. A really well-done blend on the flavors, while maintaining drinkability. Fantastic.

Stoned99 (1163) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
22 ounces bottle from trade with Jason. Aroma: really like this blend of maple syrup, bacon, coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Really subtle smoked as it warms up. App: dark brown, medium frothy moka head and great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light to medium sweetness, smooth, really subtle bitter finish. Overall: really enjoy this aroma, taste and smoothness. On the other hand the body feels too weak, too thin. With a bigger body and maybe a higher abv, I would have given a better rating for sure for the palate. I guess this is what Morning Wood is all about. Anyway, this is really really good.

Had this beer a few times but havent rated it. Dark brown near black pour with light head. Aroma is coffee, maple, nutty, and light smokey. Taste is rich sweetness and a lot of it but tasty nonetheless. A bit thin but overall cool.

JBPortland (1480) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2015
22oz bottle pours black brown with small dark tan head. Nose is a sweet coffee syrup bomb, maple and sugary chocolate. Taste is sweet with a lot of cheap maple syrup, coffee and creamer, chocolate, light vanilla and some bitter roast. Finishes bitter and sweet with lingering sticky maple, coffee, just a bit over the top. Not much "bacon" or smoke notes. Body was slighty on the thinner side. Smelled amazing initially but over the course of drinking whole glass the novelty wore off and it was just an ok-good beer, not a great beer. Definitely a flavor bomb though.

Bleh. Pours a thick creamy burnt umber color. So much artificially flavored coffee going on here... taste like I poured a couple of flavored coffee creamers over a pile of styrofoamed packed pancakes and aunt jemima corn syrup and dug in. Im not a complete adjunct beer hater but some examples are just way to heavy handed and this one is right up there with those. Pass.

Drank @ Borefts 2015 (friday), thanks for the bottle sharing! Liked this one. Very soft, coffee is very pleasant. Very much taste for such a low-alcohol beer.

markextrae (3716) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
bomber bottle shared at borefts 15. poured an almost black colour with a nice tanned looking head on top. nose has strong roasted coffee beans upfront, dark roasted chocolate, sweet molasses, smoked bacon, caramel, and charred oak. flavor is fairly sweet but it goes over to a strong bitter aftertaste. lot’s of chocolate fudge. it’s my second low abv beer from funky buddha and it’s incredible to see how much flavor they can get in their low abv beers. it’s even just as thick as a 9% beer. incredible!
