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...

Poured from bomber into snifter. Medium head that quickly dissipated. Intoxicating aroma of maple syrup, smoke, and coffee. The flavor is really on point. At first it might seem weak compared to the aroma but anything more intense and the beer would come across more as a gimmick. Instead, it's balanced beautifully. There's a soft maple syrup presence that is never cloying or too much. If sits there and gently envelops the smoke and coffee. Don't be fooled, this is an easy drinking, excellent made beer. I could drink a ton of these.

Huge aroma of maple and coffee. Taste is heavy coffee and maple with a bit of bacon in there. This is definitely the best porter Iíve ever had without a doubt.

22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a deep opaque brown with a finger of tan head. Really nice looking. The aroma and flavor are mostly the same in notes and in character - maple on the initial and finish, dark chocolate, smoky pork (bacon), brown sugar, toast, and a shot of espresso in the middle. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel that finishes sticky. Thereís absolutely no balance in this at all in the nose or on the palate. Itís like 1-2-3-4 in terms of picking out the individual elements. Theyíre all really enjoyable, but certainly not blended together. Would that even be possible? I donít know, but Iím wondering if Iíd like that version more or less because I liked all the pieces here. Fun beer.

Large brown head with good retention and little lace. Head settles into a thin sheet and just stays there. Black bodied brew. Maple aromas pop ya first then the heavily roasted coffee climbs outta there,hint metallic, nice. Body is med/full, bit chewy and nicely creamy and oily on the palate, almost silky, fine carbonation.Nice,dry,chewy, over roatsy coffee flavors, bittersweet chocolate, glancing maple notes, slight smoke (bacon?) caramel and some black malt notes. Dry finish is roasty tough and large with coffee. Man i love maple and this beer delivered. Blended nicely with the roasty coffee notes. Well done FB! No let down here. Many thanks to CraftCommander for hookin me up with a brew iv,e been hunting for for a while now. Thank Marco!

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.

Pours jet black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of big maple, smoke and coffee. Taste is smoke, maple, loads of coffee. Nice balance between flavors. Nice viscosity. Perfect!
