COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whats better than beer for breakfast? How about a little Morning Wood. This Imperial version of Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is aged in Bourbon barrels for months, lending smoothness to the smokey, salty, rich combo of maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and bacon.

THIS IS NOT THE SAME ENTRY AS WIDE AWAKE ITS MORNING - Bourbon Aged.
This beer was aged in bourbon barrels, while Wide Awake Its Morning - Bourbon Aged was aged on Buffalo Trace soaked oak cubes

22 oz bottle. The beer is black with a smallish light brown head. Very good blend of flavors. Big maple right up front, lots of vanilla. Nice big fudgey chocolate base with both milk and dark chocolatiness. Fairly strong coffee note but it doesnt dominate. Mild oak, smoke and acidity. Big, sweet and full flavors in the taste. Rich, creamy body. Moderate lactose flavor. An absolutely wonderful dessert beer. Funky Buddha really nails their adjuncts.

nearbeer (4997) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2016
650 ml. bottled 10/25/2016 and indicating 13% abv, not 12 as currently listed. Big nose of sugar maple, dark chocolate and vanilla. Some mild notes of coffee and whiskey underneath. Im thinking I only just conjured up a hint of bacon because I wanted it to be there. Look is opaque jet black with a lasting film of tan cream. Flavors of dark chocolate, maple syrup, vanilla, whiskey and toasted barrel. Later sips develop varying touches of blackstrap molasses, char, roasted peanut and soy. Heavy body leans sweet, but never cloying. Well-cloaked 13% and a smooth low-medium carbonation makes this one dangerously drinkable. Mildly disappointed in not getting any smoke or bacon flavor, yet Id be contented to sip this all evening (or morning).

Shared with JR and the guys at Beverage World in North Georgia. This beer is unbelievably good. I couldn't believe how good. Easily the best imperial porter I've ever had. Pouts a deep brown/black with tan head. Aroma is complex: coffee, syrup, maple, oak, and all kinds of smells. Taste is very smooth, earthy and semi-sweet with a balance of bitterness. Easily in my top 20 of all time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Beer Frog Spring Hill. Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, earth, black coffee, lactose, oak, vanilla, and some old coffee. Flavor is roast, earth, old coffee, vanilla, and a mild coffee bitterness. Medium in body and a nice coffee and mildly smokey Porter.

Bottle shared by Lynn - thanks!! Random notes: Maple aroma. Tastes sweet waffle maple - great balance. Covers abv really well- just background warm. Fudge, oak, almost meaty roasty. Dont get bourbon. chocolate milk. Wonderful sipper.

Bottle. Another small step in the quest for all of the top 50. Pours clear black, small tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is big maple, bourbon, hint of ashtray and cocoa. Flavor is pretty sweet, light plus bitter, huge amounts of maple and light smoke. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

suprchunk (2982) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Dark brown pour. Small tan head. Little lacing. Huge sickly sweet maple syrup aroma. Thats overpowering enough not to pick anything else up. Taste is big booze up front followed by a bottle of maple syrup. Slightly bitter. Way too sweet. I know, shocking.

Odeed (1801) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 1, 2016
As the name states, its breakfast in a bottle. You get the maple, bacon, and the coffee. The barrel aging is subtle but adds a nice twist, like having whiskey for breakfast.

This is easily one of the top 5 beers Ive ever had. Very smooth and strong maple flavor on the back end. Perfect dessert beer.
