COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

Style et résumé: Impérial porter au café, sirop d’érable et barrique de bourbon.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau.
Portrait: Une robe brune avec une mousse beige. Un nez de café, de toffee au café sur une fond de coffee crisp (la barre de chocolat). Une bouche trčs puissante, longue avec une superbe texture le tout sur café avec une touche de bourbon. Fort plaisante malgré les 11,2%.
Note: 7+/10

22oz bottle shared at Woodshop 10. Clear brown pour with good foam. Really nice maple and coffee nose. Taste is oily, spicy coffee, low acid, not sticky, more maple and coffee pile on. It’s tasty and not over the top. Vegetal coffee and sticky sweetness are absent. Clean palate. No ABV is really apparent.
