It’s a damn shame that more people don’t get to try this beer, hell I live right near the brewery and have only had it on a couple of occasions. It is just remarkable how well the bacon integrates with the maple sweetness without tasting like some Schlenkerla beer dipped inside a bottle of Dirty Bastard. The coffee is what puts it over the top, sealing the deal as a well-rounded and nuanced beer with excellent aroma and great flavor.

Pours almost black with a thin head that lingers. Nose is like maple soaked pancakes with a side of bacon. Upon sipping, you’re hit with an explosion of rich, bitter espresso. Breakfast in a bottle! Love it!
