4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of maple, light smoked notes, some floral coffee notes with some sugary notes makes for an enticing beer. Taste is a great mix of maple, light smoked notes with some sweet Aunt Jamima notes, light coffee with a side order of pancake. Body si about average with good carbonation. Well done and very enjoyable even some notes of artificial flavouring do become apparent over time.

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.
