A Note on This Beer
Do you hear the sound of something jingling, ring ting-tingling? And, do you smell fresh-baked pecan pie with… is that maple-glazed bacon on top of it!?
Well, that merry sound isn’t sleigh bells — it’s the cling-clang of all the awards that pFriem Family Brewers has won over the years. Their halls are positively decked with Gold medals from beer competitions all over the world*!
And that pecan pie smell is actually the sweet n’ smoky aromas wafting out of every bottle of their Maple Syrup Barrel Aged Smoked Porter (2019). The taste follows; this highly-rated, endlessly sippable Imperial Porter is a treat worthy of Michelin star-status for its swath of smoked candy complexity.
To make it, the brewers aged their Smoked Porter in barrels that were first used for bourbon, then for maple syrup. The result is a beer that emanates with woodfire smokiness balanced by sweet subtleties of melted chocolate, caramel, and of course, loads of sticky maple flavor.
This is a brew for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; a fancy feast or a lowkey date night. Really, it’s the beer to drink anytime you’re in the mood for a sweet, sumptuous, and smoky treat to get your bells jingling!
