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

Bottle on the morning after Solar Eclipse part 3. Aroma of roasty malt, syrup, overriped fruits, soysauce and coffee with notes of light smoke, bourbon and wood. Complex but balanced. Starts heavy sweet but finish medium bitter with lingering roasted notes. Full body and sticky texture. A great one.

Plovmand (8095) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle at Solar Eclipse Part 3: The Darkest Hours. It pours opaque black with a dense creamy beige head. The aroma is lots of maple syrup, caramel toffee, sweet roasted malts, oak, vanilla and ripe fruit. The flavour is sweet roasted with coffee, maple and cocoa notes. Vanilla and chocolate. Huge complexity but it never get too artificial and overpowered!

The smell of maple hits you as soon as the bottle is opened. Dark black in color with a thin brown head. The maple and bourbon both came through strong, with the coffee a bit more subtle. Medium bodied on the palate. Overall, an excellent beer.

juiceisloose (1351) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Draft pour multiple times. Pours a nearly pitch black in color and topped by a small, smooth tan colored head of foam that shows good retention while settling slowly to a thin film and leaving streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma is really nice and shows a wide range of depth with notes of rich maple syrup, roasted coffee, smoky, salty bacon, bourbon, oak laden vanilla, and a touch of booze. A lot going on with this one. The flavor follows suit with the rich maple syrup, roasted coffee beans, smoky, meaty bacon, and bourbon all blended together nicely. Some oaky vanilla lends further depth while the toasted caramel and chocolate malts tie everything together. Very rich, decadent, and sweet with some balancing roasty bitterness on the back end to keep this from being cloying. Full bodied, oily slick, and very smooth on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation that leads to a lengthy sweet maple and roasty finish. An excellent imperial Porter that shows a wide range and depth of flavors. Really delicious stuff but best enjoyed in smaller doses as it starts to get very sweet as it warms up. Great beer that I really enjoyed.

Dogbrick (12494) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Sample at Aficionados during the "Big Bad Bottle Share" on 02/10/2017. This beer pours a dark brown color with a thick tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, maple, coffee and smoked meat. Full-bodied with a smoked maple bacon character and notes of roasted malt and coffee in the background. The finish is sweet with a maple and malt aftertaste. Very good beer overall.
