What’s 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.

Pieknie pachnie syropem klonowym. Ale w uscie ciut pusciej i agresywniej. Ale jednak syrop robi

Imperial porter with coffee and maple syrup, aged in bourbon barrels; one of Funky Buddha's flagship beers, glad I finally got a chance to taste this celebrity at Bumb3r's underground tasting event in Antwerp. Thick and moussy, yellowish beige, opening head, black robe with hazy mahogany edges. Strong, beguiling aroma of thick molten milk chocolate, vanilla beans, marzipan, coffee liqueur, kahlua, ruby port, hazelnut paste, cognac, toffee, nougat, maple syrup, treacle. Sweet, candied-sugary onset, dark candied dates and dried figs, soft carbonation, thick and creamy toffeeish, chocolatey malt body, very hazelnutty as well, leading to a long, heating, brandy-ish finish with a peppery hop touch as well as lingering coffee and maple syrup flavours adding further complexity to an already full-bodied, multi-layered beer. Rich, boozy, bittersweet finish, very satisfying. Every bit as good as I was expecting, but again and like many of these American imperial stouts and porters, perhaps just a tad too alcoholic in the finish for me personally.

0,66l bottle at Sanders place, shared by Sander, big thanks. Bottled 25.10.2016. Black color, small coffee coloured head. Smells of maple, earthy, cinnamon, spices, sweetness. Lovely smell. Full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes of vanilla, light maple, earthy, peppery, bit chocolate, grassy, earthy, some wood. Finishes lightly roasty bitter with notes of vanilla, some maple and earthy notes. For me too heavy on the vanilla, nice maple and wood notes. Balance gets better once it warms up. Very nice still

Bomber courtesy gift of Meadme, taken all the way to Niger for our monthly craft tasting. Brune foncée voire noire, col épais crémeux café au lait le tout sur un filament doré au verre-huileux. Arôme est malté, pas mal de café avec un excellent fini d'érable accompagné par de belles effluves de Bourbon, vanillé. Palais est modéré niveau effervescence, beau profil de Bourbon, boisé, chêne US avec un effet organique venant de l'érable, le tout est un peu caramélisé et sec sur la fin. Vanille revient en retrait et accompagne bien ce côté café - caramel perdure sur la toute fin.

Lucky Bamboo bottle share. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of brown head that dissipates quickly. Huge maple forward nose with vanilla and bourbon notes. Sweet on the palate, but not overly so for a pastry stout. Light smoke and more maple. Lingering bourbon heat on the finish, but overall abv hidden well. Coffee shines a bit more as it warms. As advertised. --- Beer merged from original tick of Morning Wood on 27 Jan 2018 at 19:20 - Score: 9
