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.

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.

DuffMan (6549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
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-- it’s 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 what’s 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 I’m usually not a big maple in my beer kind of guy, but this works. Great beer.

RBAG breakfast beer! Bottle generously sent by my good friend Tommy, thanks man! Thick black pour, with light white foam. Aroma, coffee, lots of maple, chocolate, bacon, this a great smelling beer. Taste, subtle maple sweetness up front, followed by some coffee, creamy mouthfeel, with a sweet maple finish. This is delicious.

Bottle - Lots of sweet syrup, coffee and some light smoke. Jet black with a rich beige head. Coffee, maple and a bitter roast finish. I don’t like maple, I like this. Really well done.

crossovert (7013) - Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2014
650ml bottle. Brown pour, heavy maple and caramel smell, aslo some coffe and cocoa. Flavor is coffee, cooca, and maple, fairly dry surprisingly, no smoke really. Like the abv and not sure of the price point but it is probably expensive.

Staffan47 (858) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Flaska (från biggsbowler. Thanks!) Massiv choklad och möjligen lönnsirap Kjellander håller på traditionen och även denna midsommar slänger en skvätt över sig själv, i det här fallet vänster ben. Känner ingen bacon. Balanserad rund och len. Kaffe men ganska låg beska. Kul eftersmak, troligen lönnsirap. Ja det är lönnsirap. Bacon är obefintlig. Upplevs ganska tung med tanke på abv. Bra som tusan! Midsommar 2014 i Nolsterby

650 ml bottle. Near black with tan head. Aroma of malt, rum, raisins, maple syrup, sugar, roasted notes and coffee beans. Taste is maple, roasted malt, coffee, vinous, raisins, a bit of rum and nice coffee notes.
