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.

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.

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

Thanks to johngalt for this. Pours jet black almost no head. Nose is huge maple syrup. Tastes like a maple bar with a great coffee finish. The saltiness of the bacon is pretty subdued but still apparent. Nicely done

22 ounce bottle. Thanks to William! Pours almost black with a nice fluffy khaki head. Nice aroma of maple, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is maple, coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla, and a touch of caramel. Didn’t get any bacon or smoke. This deserves it’s rating for sure. Glad they bottle this stuff so I have at least a chance to snag one every so often. Will try and have a bottle of this available all of the time.

On tap. The aroma has intense maple syrup, a lot of coffee and a hint of smoke. Pleasant and really impressive aroma. The taste is also really heavy on the maple syrup taste - but without a cloying sweetness. It manages to catch the maple taste, and not all the sugar. Also coffee, caramel and roasted malts backed up by a light acidity. Couldn’t drink a bomber of this, but a really pleasant and impressive beer.
