Light amber, slightly cloudy. Light head, dissipates quickly, but leaves a decent lacing. Strong maple syrup nose with a hint of bacon. Maple syrup taste, mixed with smokiness...and a touch of bacon. Some mild bittering hops, fading to a weak smoky sweetness. Oily-smooth mouthful...light carbonation.

Pours a murky copper from the bottle with a good off white head and light lacing. Smell is all maple, kind of like pancake syrup. Taste is the maple up front, a little bit of smoked flavor and woodiness in the middle, then an interesting spicy finish. Clean on the palate, but a little too much going on.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle with Robert and Fantasia. Poured a dark copper color, large head with tiny bubbles that did not last, moderate lace. Aromas of glazed maple donut, funnel cake, bacon bits. Taste is vanilla, applewood smoked bacon, donuts, and some other sweet and salty flavors. Smooth palate with a nice light bitterness from the hops. After talking to friends who tried this, I did not think I could drink more then a few ounces. Turns out, it was pretty enjoyable and way better then the current ratings.

Mahogany colored beer, with an off-white head. Strong, and delicious breakfast aromas of pancakes, maple syrup, and some smoke. Tastes of buttery pancakes topped with maple syrup, sweet bacon, lots of caramel malt, barbecue smoke, and ends on a sugary sweet syrup flavor. I wish the maple flavor was even stronger, as the smoked flavors tend to dominate a bit. Heavy beer with an oily mouth feel, yet it is easy to drink. Very enjoyable breakfast in a bottle. Worth checking out.

Shared by someone at the Monte’s Krown tasting yesterday. Very smoky in the nose. Watered down maple syrup with bacon, pancakes and a drop of the fake liquid smoke taste. Artificial all the way. Fake. Bad.

Poured a cloudy copper with good head. Nose smelled of smoked bacon, maple syrup, and nuts. Tasting was if you were to BBQ a McDonald’s McGriddle... The flavor was pure smoke with some sweet maple, with some bacon flavor. Not really something I would drink again, but had to try.
