RichTheVillan (4685) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy light amber pour with an off white head, big maple and light smoke aroma, sweet doughnut taste with maple hints of smoke, quite a forced artificial flavour.

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at the Hickster Invasipn. Pours a murky brown with no head. Smoke, maple, bacon aroma. Thin, no carb. Tastes of maple more than anything. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Tommann. Sweetish aroma. It’s a little musty. sweet. Not for me. Some maple syrup.

Hinchy (3) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2014 does not count
Very strong initial aroma and punch on the taste. Aftertaste has bitter and thick lingering but a bit thin in the mouth. Great golden orange colouring, lots of lacing with an initial big pillowy head.

Can smell the maple smoked bacon a mile away. A little sweet and some chemical taste afterwards. Takes awhile for it to develop into a pleasant taste, alot going on. Good effort, nice change up.

I can see why this beer divides opinion. It smells great, sweet maple syrup from the off, followed up by smoked bacon. Pours a murky orange with a thin head. Taste starts with the sweet maple, bacon is a subtle protein hint followed by the smoke. After a while the smoke does get a bit much but if you drink this beer at a nice leisurely pace then it is manageable. If you don’t like smoked beer stay away! If you don’t think beer can have a sense of humour, stay well clear!
