GBZ59 (1061) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 23, 2014
Botella de 750ml. Copa Globo de Palm (notas del 2012). Color naranja oscuro y apariencia nublada. La espuma, entre marfil y beige claro, crea una consistente capa. El complejo perfil aromático presenta notas intensas de sirope de arce, maltas ahumadas, caramelo quemado, tortitas y torrefacto con trazos de madera quemada. La entrada ahumada precede a un ascendente dulzor. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada. Paladar viscoso. En el intermedio afloran toques de bacón y leve salado junto a sabores de galleta que permanecen el final dulce. Madera en el retrogusto. Una cerveza para “flipar” por las potentes sensaciones que muestra…y lo de menos es el color rosa de la botella!! 750ml bottle. Palm Snifter glass (from my 2012 notes). Deep orange color & cloudy appearance. Off-white to light beige foam creates a thick crown. Complex aroma profile shows intense maple syrup, smoked malts, burnt candy, pancake, roasted notes & burnt wood. Smoked upfront followed by arising sweetness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Viscous mouthfeel. In the middle, touches of bacon & slight salty with biscuit maltiness linger in a sweet finish. Woody aftertaste. You´re gonna be shocked by strong sensations but the pink color bottle won´t be the main one !!

tomekk1978 (408) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Barwa: miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się. Wysycenie wysokie. [5/5] Aromat: początkowo syrop klonowy zmieszany ze spalenizną (a’la dym z ogniska). Następnie nuty estrowe i fenolowe. Niezwykły takiego jeszcze nie czułem. Smak: słodki, owocowy (gruszki w zalewie?), następnie wędzoność, ale inna niż zwykle - owocowa. Utrzymująca się jednak trochę męcząca. Do tego nuty fenolowe (wanilia, gałka muszkatołowa?). Ogólnie niezwykły, jednak nie wiem czy mi smakuje. Jedno z najciekawszych piw, jakie piłem, chociaż trudno stwierdzić czy smaczne. Z pewnością warto docenić walory wizualne, bowiem różowa butelka z szamanem voodoo, świnkami i liśćmi klonowymi przykuwa uwagę. Zawartość również jest nietuzinkowa, ale... Właśnie piwo jest na tyle specyficzne i złożone, że ciężko je należycie opisać. Z pewnością jest jednak warte uwagi i należałoby spróbować je chociaż raz.

Wordsworth (129) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bomber poured into coffee mug. Pours a golden brown with no head, no lacing and minimal carbonation. Aroma is big maple, a hint of bacon. Flavor profile is very light, with touches of maple syrup and a faint proteiny bacon taste. Very underwhelming. Would not have again.

tectactoe (1443) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle: Dense amber, lightly hazy with a decent sized, yet quickly fading white head. Aroma is amazing, smells like fresh, applewood smoked bacon drizzled with warm maple syrup & perhaps even candied slightly with brown sugar. I do not understand how things go so awry, but the flavor is god awful. All you can taste is smoke. Not good smoke... More like cigarette smoke. Over carbonated to hell, so each sip is sharp, astringent, & full of insanely bitter, palate raping ashy smoke. Hints of caramel... barely any maple. 98% ash-tray smoke. Not good. Amazing aroma, yet one of the worst tastes ever. What the hell?

Very Woody campfire smell. Way too strong. Hints of maple but it's overpowered by the campfire bacon smell. An interesting idea for a beer just not well executed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daje (2033) - NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle at Øltorget, september 3rd 2013. Wow, a big pink bottle with the words Voodoo, Doughnut and Bacon on? Of course I had to! Unclear dark brown body, large beige head. Aroma of smoked bacon, maple (no surprise there?), nuts, blackberries. The smoked bacon is really pleasant, though the whole aroma is very ...special. Taste is on the sweet side, vanilla and syrup, guess that’s where the doughnut joins the party? The bacon is more subtle in the swallow, allowing a caramel and light peat taste to dominate. It’s below medium carbonated, with a thick body. Light bitterness, though it has a rather dry aftertaste. A really strange one this, I do like it, however it’s definately a bottle for sharing, as we did. Would score high if awkwardness was a category.

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a swampy burnt sienna color with a finger of gaseous foam. The beer is absolutely disgusting. Aunt jemima syrup mixed with I cant believe its not butter spread on stryofoam aged shitty mcdonalds pancakes that sat on top of the motel television for two weeks to give the cockroaches fair game... but they didn’t touch it so we mashed it with some shitty brown ale and strained it through some used ripped pantyhose found in the bathroom of said motel. Bottled up in an old pepto-bismol bottle and then had some tattoo shop across the street make a hip label to cover up the original contents of the bottle. Joke of all joke beers.

JBPortland (628) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle shared by Lukaduke because no one deserves to suffer through this alone. Nose is sweet artificial maple syrup, Aunt Jemima. Taste is syrupy maple, extremely sweet, like drinking out of the syrup pitcher at a greasy spoon diner. Finish is sticky sweet artifical maple syrup. It did make me want some pancakes. Good god was this awful.

Philym (925) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Appearance: Slightly hazy amber with 2 finger thick ivory head. Aroma; Smoked malt, wood, the smoke of a wood fire, hint of smoky bacon, vanilla and maple syrup. Taste: Medium bitter and sourness, slight sweetness and saltiness. Palate: Thin coarse texture, light body, average carbonation, lingering dry smoky, sour, bitter finish with undercurrent of maple sweetness. Comments: Tasty and glass lace. Certainly an interesting take on this style of beer.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film rather quickly. The nose is rather sickly sweet with maple syrup. The smoke is fairly noticeable as well, but the maple is just crazy overpowering. Smells like a glass of Log Cabin syrup. The flavor is hands down one of the grossest things I have ever put in my mouth. Awful artificial maple syrup backed up by a smoky and acrid burnt bacon flavor. This sounds like something and evils genius would come up with, but it’s just the evil part that comes through. Sticky and clingy body with fizzy carbonation and a long lingering finish. Beers don’t get much worse than this one. This is just horrid. I can’t ever imagine having all 22 oz of this beer. If say a good 19 oz of this bottle will be going down the drain. Wow.
