4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rating #1400 from backlog. Shared at Dangerous Bottleshares Feat Aaron from Oregon 5.0. And here it goes: Pours a pitch black with a frothy, brown, long lasting head. Super nice aroma with lots of bourbon, milk chocolate, vanilla, smoke, iced coffee, maple syrup, molasses, vanilla ice cream, tobacco. Oh yes! Taste is sweet with lots of creamy maple sweetness up front, gets smoky, more dry, salty with lots of coffee and some roasty malt bitterness. Bourbon leads to an epic smooth finish that makes you want to not ever want anything else than this beer in your mouth again. Full, sticky body and an average to low carbonation. Best FB beer for me so far!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of big coffee, maple, fudge, and light smoke. Flavor similar, maple even bigger in the flavor than the aroma, big coffee character, smokey and roasted, some whiskey notes. Somehow sweetness is kept in check, and not as artificial at the MBCP. Really nice.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Oh hell yeah! Pours a inky brown black without a head. Aromas were of a bit of coffee and just a hint of the maple. However, the maple blew your face off in the taste. Sweet maple was predominant. Totally delivers as expected.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshares feat. Aaron from Oregon 5.0. Pours almost black with a frothy brown head. Aroma has LOTS of coffee, maple, chocolate, vanilla, milk chocolate, weak smoke and fudge. The coffee is somewhat flavored like the wide awake and is pretty similar to wide awake in general just with sweet barrel character on top of that sweet base. The taste has lots and lots of maple, chocolate, coffee, salty liquorice, sweet bourbon, fudge, caramel, weak roast, slight smoke and is just smooth overall. A stunner!

Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshare feat. Aaron from Oregon 5.0. Pitch black pour with dark tan head. Tons of maple, pancake, coffee and sweet syrup on the nose. Taste has more coffee than the base, some flesh and again tons of maple and sweet notes. Body is a bit thin but nevertheless super tasty!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a good black with a beige bubbly head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of coffee, Coffee Crisp (TM) candy bars, fake off course but fun while it lasts. Taste is of maple and coffee and moderately sweet. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and it sticks on the lips. A bit of alcohol but it never feels like 11%. Overall a really fun adjunct/artificially flavored stout. One of the better Funky Buddha’s I’ve had so far!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (22 oz) at tasting. Thanks to Stoned99 for this bottle! Dark brown with a small brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, Coffee Crisp™ (props to mathieuc), loads of maple syrup, coffee, caramel... like most Funky Buddha this is so intense that it feels artificial but it’s enjoyable nonetheless. It gets a bit cloying with taste because of the sweetness and the loads of maple syrup flavor but it’s still interesting with tons of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, caramel along with some spiciness and a bit of alcohol heat. Medium body, but it feels thin for a 11%+ abv Imperial Porter. Medium carbonation. Sweet finish with maple syrup, vanilla and coffee. Like many FB beeers it’s extremely flavorful - borderline artificial because it’s so intense - but a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Another "festival" beer that will get plenty of great ratings with 1 or 2 oz pours but that I would never be able to drink by the glass.
