4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz - Courtesy of Hopscotch. Thanks for sharing, Eric! Black, tan creamy head. Bacon wrapped french toast aromas swirl on a warm buttery sweet maple syrup and coffee tone throughout. A true breakfast lovers treat as flavors are tightly wound on notes of espresso, salty smoked bacon, and hints of Vermont maple candy. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smoked maple finish. Fantastic beer...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle thanks to Bursprak. Not entirely fresh. Pours a pitch black with a tan, bubbly head. Aroma has a SHIT ton of maple syrup, cold brew coffee, light smoke, caramel, burnt wood. Taste is sweet, but not as much as expected from the aroma. Light roasty bitterness, lots of maple, caramelized bacon smoke, syruppy finish. Wow, the after taste is so similar to the one after having the full american breakfast. Light salty. Pretty weak body, average carbonation.
