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.

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.

To be quite honest-Holly shit this beer is amazing. thanks be to my good buddy ’Topher , if not for him I would not have had the opportunity to sample, share, appreciate this beer. Poured into a Prairie tulip glass and it wastes not time asserting what it is. Phenomenal Maple, Pancake Sausage, McGriddle flavor aroma and boyd. No kidding this smells like a full plate of breakfast. Holy shit, I cannot express my pure pleasure while eating/Drinking this beer, it is simply breakfast. I want more, So much more!

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.
