2017 bomber pours a dark brown black with a large khaki tan head. Sweet aroma of maple, caramel, toffee, with lighter coffee and roasted malts. Smooth and creamy on the palate, sweet flavors of milk chocolate, very present but not overbearing maple, vanilla, caramel mocha, a touch of salt, with light but distinct roasted smoky malt and coffee on the finish. Great balance of flavors, highly drinkable and delicious!!! jc1762 (1609) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2017
Bottle poured into a wineglass showing translucent coffee brown rims with spare white foam.
The nose shows a lot of coffee and milk chocolate.
The palate is medium bodied and porter carbonation, foamy body. Strong flavors of dry milk chocolate, caramel latte/mocha and maple syrup. Dry and a strong maple/latte finish. Speko (480) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2017
Bottle 0,65 thanks to Slacker. Pours black with large off-white foamy head, good retention. Maple syrup, roasted malts, wood, chocolate, vanilla in the aroma. Maple is dominating in the taste, with notes of vanilla, chocolate, some smoke, faintly some salt. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. SlackerMads (3523) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a large light brown head. Brown sugar, mild meaty smoke, chalk, dark wood and mild coffee in the nose. The flavour is mild with vanilla, light coffee, mild meaty smoke, maple syrup, dark wood, light tobacco. Medium body, soft texture, medium sweet and bitter. Long finish. Pleasant. juiceisloose (1543) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2017
2017 draft pour at Frank N Steins. Pours a really dark brown color and topped by a small layer of tan colored foam that shows good retention before slowly settling to a thin film and leaving streaks of lace on the glass. The aroma is nice showing notes of fresh maple syrup, roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some smoked meats to go with the dark caramel and roasted malts. The flavor follows suit and shows a nice blend between the rich maple syrup, roasted coffee, chocolate, and salty smokey bacon flavors. There is just enough roast there to add some nice bitterness while a touch of vanilla adds depth and balance as well. Medium bodied and smooth with balanced carbonation that leads to a lengthy maple syrup and roasted coffee finish. This is still a tasty beer even after all these years and scaling up the production drastically.

Dark beer with some mahogany highlights. Thin beige head. Initial maple frosting nose that settled into a nice sweet coffee. Rich flavor of sweetened coffee, maple doughnut frosting, and a little smoke in the finish. Damn nice beer. dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bomber via FB trade. Poured a rather full body for only a 6.4% beer, under a smaller super tight foamy beige head. Aroma is sweet maple syrup topped French toast, coffee with a splash of cream. Flavor is more like maple syrup over lightly burnt toast with just a touch of coffee in the background. Thinner body for all the flavors in this beer with softer carbonation. So much going on for only a 6.4% beer, really nice. nimbleprop (8750) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2017
On tap at Lost and Found, pours a muddy black with a ring of tan head. Nose is everything promised, maple, vanilla, coffee grounds, chocolate, some salty jerky. Flavor is better, WOW, chocolate covered espresso bean, maple, vanilla, no bacon but who cares. Finishes dry. So legit. I love to hate on hyped beers that don’t live up, but this one absolutely does. deyholla (12276) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2017
