On tap at BrŁ Craft. Dark brown with some froth. Nose is coffee, light maple, molasses and mild smoke. Creamy, full-bodied with a tang. Taste is caramel, maple, smoke, faint bourbon and coffee. Lovely maple sweetness plays off the earthy coffee and woody bourbon. As good as expected.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft, Oakland Park. Near black. Aroma is syrupy sweet molasses, maple donut, bourbon...decadent. Very sweet, again maple doughnut frosting. Very thick body with a slightly boozy kick. Decadent. Not getting much bacon but thatís not a big deal. Moreish for such a beast. You can really see the appeal.

ctipping (539) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2015
On-tap at the Funky Buddhaís 2nd Anniversary Party. Poured into an FB snifter. Black without being inky. Small khaki head. Wispy and a little sticky. Intense coffee without ever being acidic. It rounds itself out with a touch of maple and some smokiness that mellows the coffee into an earthiness that is quite pleasant. A little over the top at first, but the full nose is quite nice. Like the nose, the coffee taste is intense and almost astringent. The acidity of it is just a little too much at first. The roasted malts mellow it, surprisingly, and give it a nice touch of smoke in the end. The maple is barely a hint, if I can even detect it at all. It just seems to be there as something that keeps it drinkably sweet at such a high ABV and coffee content. The coffee intense and maybe a little too intense. The rest of the beer drinks nicely, especially for 11.5%, which is how FB listed it on the board. Medium bodied. Nicely balanced except for the coffee. A really nice beer without being exceptional in any way. The way the coffee character blends with the smoked malts is its best characteristic.

Damico (3002) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours thick dark unclear deep coffee dirty brown black with a small darker beige head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor are divine bringing a blend of coffee and beautiful maple syrup showcasing in the nose, better balanced maple than any other beer I have had! Flavors bring the maple and coffe balanced again with no overbearing flavors and then the bacon is quite subtle with some smokiness blending with coffee so well.

Tap at huna day, aroma is toasted malt, sweet maple and light smoke? Bacon is still hard for me to pick up, solid brown ale
