What’s better than beer for breakfast? How about a little Morning Wood. This Imperial version of Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is aged in Bourbon barrels for months, lending smoothness to the smokey, salty, rich combo of maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and bacon.

This beer was aged in bourbon barrels, while Wide Awake It’s Morning - Bourbon Aged was aged on Buffalo Trace soaked oak cubes

This is easily one of the top 5 beers I’ve ever had. Very smooth and strong maple flavor on the back end. Perfect dessert beer.

markextrae (3898) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle at north vs south tasting. Poured dark oily black with a small darker tanned ring on top. Nose is dark roasted coffee, vanilla, smoke, oak, vanilla, roast, fudge, maple syrup, light tannis whisky notes, sweet bourbon. Taste is sweet chocolate, light coffe vanilla, creamy, strong bourbon notes in the finish, and light smoked bacon. It has lost Some of the base ingredients you can find in the non barrel version. But the mouthfeel on this one is way more complex and full bodied. Amazing porter! Would love this as breakfast on a sunday morning

Bottle courtesy of Biggsbowler. Pours blackish dark brown with a small mocha head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, maple syrup, caramelized bacon, toasted coconut, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is round, oily, viscous, astringent, slightly boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, coffee, chocolate, maple, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Wide Awake was a really lovely beer. This adds bourbon barrel treatment that mellows everything out and a fatter mouthfeel. Delicious!
