4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle courtesy of Biggsbowler. Pours blackish dark brown with a small frothy mocha head that doesnít leave much trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malrty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, caramlized bacon, maple syrup, moist soil, sweet liquorice candy and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny viscous, tiny astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, heavy dark roast coffee, chocolate, maple syrup, burnt wood and hints of alcohol. While I wouldnít have minded a fatter mouthfeel this is still just so damn decadently good. Intense espresso and maple. Lovely!

Tried at Himmeriget in Copenhagen.
This beer is a true coffee stout with notes of chocolates. It got a great full body and the alcohol is kept well under control.

Bottle share on 7/30/16. This immediately followed the Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, what a combo. If the MCBP was the jab that knocked me silly, this was the knockout blow. Everything that MCBP was, this had dialed up, with the added booziness from the 10% ABV. This isnít breakfast the morning after, this is breakfast while youíre still out partying.

black with brown edges Smells like a coffee milkshake with marshmallow added. the middle to ending is just so effing loaded up with coffee itís ridiculous. no bacon (if there is any?) but a ton of coffee. at first you just get this fudge bomb. how is that floridians are making good porters? itís not sane at all.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from jtclockwork-thanks, James! Pours dark and thick as youíd expect. Nose is massive maple syrup and not much else. Taste starts with massive maple syrup followed by a bitter roasted coffee, finishing sweet with more maple syrup. Not sure I get the bacon, but there is a smokiness to it. Very rich and hard to finish. More maple syrup than Iíve ever had from a beer but ultimately too much and somewhat disjointed.
