Oakes (13594) - 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.

Tmoney99 (12036) - 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.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 DraftÖ This beer rocks!Ö Pours black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is all about pure, deep roast Cuban or Kona coffee accompanied by gobs of maple syrup and a subtle nuance of crispy, smoked bacon. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Huge Cuban espresso and maple syrup flavor without the cloying sweetness I feared may rear its ugly head when I first heard they would be ďimperializingĒ the Maple Bacon Coffee Porter. Balanced nicely by what I can only assume are black malt, singed coffee and hops. Burnt, acrid, moderately bitter, espresso finish. Way too drinkable for a high abv beer. I had three glasses and could have drank more. Another world class beer from Kevin and Ryan at The Buddha!

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.

j12601 (8000) - 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.
