Ive been wanting to try this beer for a while now, and I must say, Im quite disappointed. It had a nice finish, and a nice head (after being stored in the freezer for about 30 minutes), but it tasted a bit flat. I got more of the maple taste than the bacon. Overall, I wouldnít pay 12 dollars for it again.

Pink depth charge from Samís, Durham. I wanted badly to have a nice experience with this beer, knowing sometimes that impressions get pinned at the extremes. Alas, dirty water pour with a minimal head, sharp burnt meat nose along with some Aunt Jemima. Taste initially promises to be homebrew-ish rauch with toppings but itís not nearly as good as that. Iím ashamed that I inflicted this on friends but they felt toughened up by the experience.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a longlasting off-white head. Has a sweetish malty smoky maple aroma. Sweetish applewood smoky maple flavor with hints of caramel. Has a sweetish malty spicy smoky maple finish.

pours maple syrup brown, smallish head, some slow-moving CO2 streams. Very intense and aromatic applewood & hickory smoke on the nose. A burst of hickorysmokeup front, light and watery malts in the mids, light sweetness (3/10), minor saltiness, light maple caramel, finishes with a long smokiness and a light bitterness. Some medium sourness as the beer warms. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, decent carry, good drinkability. Definitely a unique beer and one of the best looking bottles Iíve ever seen.

750ml bottle shared with some friends. Color is a deep amber with good carbonation and a nice off white head. Aroma is bold with maple and smoke. It has a medium body with a rich mouth feel. Flavor is very interesting, with maple and smoke that really gives a bacon like taste. In the after taste the sweetness and smoke hang a little heavy. Overall it nails the flavor they are going for but it gets to be a bit much and trying to drink the whole thing alone would be tough.

750mL bottle. Poured medium amber with a dense, 1" beige head. The aroma picked up lots of maple and salty bacon with smoked hickory around.. meaty and intriguing. The flavor found more of the smoked malts, caramel, and almost nutty notes at the core.. salty bacon and maple essence around.. some earthy and herbal bitterness joined maple and caramel on the salty finish. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. tart smokiness held the sweetness in check.. OK flow.. there was a lot going on here, but I really enjoyed it.

Pours a dark brown with reddish tint with a medium head foam. Aromas scream maple syrup and smoke. It a fun aroma. Tastes like liquid smoke, syrup and bacon bits. It was actually rather unpleasant. The long lingering smokiness kills the palate and the over sweet maple overcompensates. Glad I tried it...won't do it again. --- Cheers

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2012
Slightly hazy, light brown colour, firm but diminishing white head. Aroma of maple syrup, wood, caramel, smoke, roasted marshmellows and íhopjesvlaí. Flavour of malts, smoke, somewhat sweet, smoked bacon, marshmellows, wood and maple. Somewhat thinner than expected. Finish of wood, sweet wood, hickery, cherrywood and marshmellow.
Quite weird. Extra point weirdness and the over the top bottle. Does make perfect sence when added to a BBQ ribs marinade.
(From 75cl bottle @ ZZT IV. Thanks for sharing, joes)

Aroma is very similar to a maple donut along with a smokey aroma. The taste is sweet at first with the a lot of smoke kicking in after. While the donut flavor isnít really there the smoke reminds the palate if bacon while the maple comes through in the sweetness. Not too sure why more people donít like it, as I found it uniquely well made and enjoyed it quite a bit.
