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.

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.

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.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of maple, vanilla, chocolate and bacon. Malty and caramelly flavor with maple and slight bacon before a chocolate and roast finish.

Bottle at RBSG PGH 2016, big thanks to Beerman6686! Good strong beer from the start. Big black coffee color. Has a very good coffee attitude without any of the ill effects that are so common in most coffee beers. Would never know this is 10% because of the smooth well made black coffee attitude. Half way through I start to get some smooth chocolate in there as well. Iím not usually a fan for anything imperial, but I found this to be quite enjoyable, thanks Dan!

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Bomber from AK. Thick, syrupy and jet black and limited tan head. Aroma wafts through the room. Maple syrupy sweetness in the nose. Roasty and burnt with the maple syrup sweet profile. Very hearty with bitter chocolate bite. This is a meal best shared and enjoyed with friends. There is a cloying aftertaste from the coffee that makes this not as too notch as others have rated it. Alcohol also becomes noticeable as this warms.

32 oz. crowler from Homer321 - huge thanks, Sean! Pours a deep, hazy dark brown color with a moderate tan head that settles into a ring and little galaxy of film while leaving spots of lace in the glass. Loads of the main features here - maple, brown sugar, and coffee, in particular, with backing smoke, vanilla, cocoa, and tobacco. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky, mildly roasty mouthfeel. Like the recent experience I had with ManBearPig, this one needs its own glass for the evening or everything else is going to smell like it going forward. And like other Funky Buddha crazy beers, it absolutely delivers on what it promises. Fun stuff.
