Pours black with little to no head. Aroma is amazing. Maple, bacon, and coffee. I donít know how they manage this one. Buts its pretty damn amazing. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more maple, bacon, then finishes with coffee. I kept smelling and tasting and smelling and tasting. This is an amazing beer and worth seeking out. Just awesome.

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 (2858) - 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

Tasted from draft. Pours black with a nice mocha head with good lacing. Incredible aroma of coffee, maple syrup and cooking bacon. Smells like breakfast. Taste is coffee, maple syrup, caramel, toffee and a little chocolate. Full bodied and clingy to the palate. Absolutely incredible beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

32oz crowler. Thanks for ojgio for sharing this amazing beer at the kbs hotel bottle share. Dense black with nice amount of head for a stout. Huge coffee and slight chocolate on the aroma. Taste is a complete coffee bomb. Not as complex as the regular mbcp, the coffee really dominates in it. Thick and chewy body. As far as coffee stouts, this is behind only MD.
