Thanks a bunch for the rare tick Sean. This bottle is about a year old and itís held up incredibly. Pours a brownish black in color with almost no head formation. Nose is Maple Bacon Coffee Porter on steroids, the coffee, maple, and vanilla all pop quite a bit. There is some smoke character there as well. Flavor follows the nose only itís heavier on the maple syrup and bacon character. The maple syrup lingers nicely on the finish. Nice and smooth mouthfeel, not acrid at all from the coffee, no booze, almost silky. Great beer, Funky Buddha kills another beer. I loved the MBCP and this blows it out of the water.

Bomber from Funky Buddha. Cheers, gents! Pours a dark stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is chocolate, light maple, smoke, some ash, and some bacon. Flavor is similar with chocolate, roasted malts, some smoke, some bacon, and some rubbery ash as well. Body is medium to the bottom side of full, and lingering roast and smoke in the finish. Really interesting beer.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Bill for the pour. Dark murky brownish black with thin tan head, aroma had big roasted and ashy notes, salty bacon and caramel came through, a bittering coffee as well with smoke lingering as well, with a nice sweet maple and honey coming through at the end. Canít believe how close it smells like to the name. Taste was a bit ashy, but a nice full bodied mix of salty smoked meats, coffee and a nice sweet maple note throughout, made this a delicious and much more full version of its smaller counterpart. Delicious stuff.

Sampled at EBF Saturday Afternoon. Pours a solid dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is heavy on the coffee with maple, brown sugar, and hints of bacon. Thereís a beer in that glass? Taste is really quite the coffee bomb with hints of maple and brown sugar. Medium to thick body with a creamy oily mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. While not horribly complex, it is different and I really enjoyed this beer.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Pouring at the Saturday afternoon session of EBF. Pours a deep brown with a medium sized beige to tan head. Big coffee, maple syrup and molasses. Coffee syrup flavors come through right away, long maple backing it up. Loads of sweetness, but still fairly drinkable. Long roast with more syrup on the finish. No smokiness ever showed up, but this was still delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 WAIM pours a pitch, oily, black with very little head at all. But letís just forget what this beer looks like because as youíre pouring this beer your nostrils will be attacked with huge aromas. One of the strongest beers Iíve ever smelled in my life. The aroma is full and I mean full of maple syrup. When I mean full of it, itís hard to explain. I could walk into the other room and still get a little bit of the smell. Putting my nose up to it I got more. A nice bit of smokiness comes up, followed by coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Itís impressive. Itís huge. Itís hard to explain on a blog. The taste is just as good and just as big. Once again the maple syrup dominates and I really wonder just how much they used for this beer. The flavor is dominated by sweetness. As the maple calms down a bit youíll pick up the other flavors. Coffee, smokiness, and chocolate. This beer is huge but the ingredients totally cover up any alcohol that is in this beer. Itís breakfast in a bottle. Itís a total sipper. One to sit back and enjoy over an hour or so. I was questioning myself the whole time, is this really beer? Awesome. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low carbonation, but very sticky. Like maple syrup.

Thanks to John for sharing this awesome brew! Bottle 11 of 50. Pours dark brown with just a hint of tan head. The smell of this is like nothing else! Maple syrup, bacon, smoke, coffee, pancakes, reminds of a maple pecan doughnut also some tobacco notes. Taste: Coffee, smoke, maple syrup, pancakes, nuts, bacon and tobacco. Thick on the palate with a interesting maple bacon and coffee finish.

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate and roasted coffee malt with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced roasted dark coffee flavor with a medium to heavy dark coffee sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
