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...

Bomber, shared in line at R&D release. Lots of coffee a touch of maple and bacon do come through. And actual bacon, not smoke like some other bacon beers. Pretty good stuff, definitely legit.

Big maple nose on top of coffee and very light salty smoke. Dark brown almost black pour tan head. Flavors of lots of maple. Permeates throughout. Coffee and chocolate underneath. Very light salty smoke. Maple lingers. Good beer. A lot of damn maple. Smooth interesting unique.

Clear dark brown beer, small beige aery head, dissipates quickly. Aroma: sweet, lots of vanilla, sugary, caramel, some chocolate, mocha, sweet coffee. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: bit sweet, hint of vanilla, burned caramel, mocha, bit spicy, cinnamon, little smoky. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet mocha, bit sugary, pretty watery.

Bottle, RBAG 2014 prelim-- first beer of the day. Hearty very dark brown, sweet maple and dark malts, just a touch of meaty smoke. Dense flavours, rich and sweet but not cloying; mildly bitter finish. Maple is usually like honey for me when it comes to beer-- itís hard to find a balance within the sweetness. But this beer does a fantastic job, very very good!

Bottle to goblet at the RBAG14...first of the day at breakfast. Thanks kbudd.
Maple, bacon, coffee...just whatís been advertised, I detect caramel and a touch of vanilla. Dark silky black with a creamy tan head. Taste is primarily maple and coffee and Iím usually not a big maple in my beer kind of guy, but this works. Great beer.
