This beer pours nicely. It has a nice amber color with a creamy head. The smell is smokey with a somewhat significant maple aroma. The flavor is quite abrupt. The smokiness and baconesque flavor really overpowers the beer causing the grotesque flavor to permeate your nose and palate. The flavor of the beer stays in your mouth, so there is no relief from the flavor. I could not finish the beer. I drank about a quarter of it (mostly holding my breath) and started to literally gag from the flavor. I have enjoyed several of Rogue’s beers, but, this beer was a major mistake. It was a novel and innovative idea, but, the execution failed miserably as far as I am concerned.

Out of a sweet pink bottle. Pours cloudy with a small head. Smoky smell and taste without any hoppiness. Bacon flavor comes through and not really in a good way. Definitely glad I shared this with friends since I couldn’t drink a 22 of this by myself.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 bottle. clear gold/amber/orange with a small white head. aroma is full of sweet maple soaked pancakes and smoky sizzling bacon fat. that is awesome! bacon is the dominant flavor while the maple from the aroma fades during the taste but gives way to a sweet pale malt. this beer has a medium body with low carbonation. they did a great job with this. i’ll probably never try this again, but i was a really interesting beer to enjoy once.

DutchDrebus (3792) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ ZZT4. Orange to red colour with no head. Smells quite unique! Maple obviously, smoked, sweet. Tastes smokey, sweet, syruppy, wood, haagse hopjes. This is a weird beer. Lots of taste going on. Not bad! Medium body, good carbo.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2012
650ml bottle @ ZZT IV. Hazy orange to light red color, small off-white to beige lacing. Aroma is smoke, bacon, lightly candy, syrup. Taste smoke, bacon and hopjesvla. Absolutely NOT my thing at all. Low to medium carbo and body.

BeerDeltaBravo (53) - Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours a murky light brown with a cotton candy head. Beautiful lacing. Thick bacon scent, punctuated with baking soda and powdered sugar. Absolutely disgusting maple flavor, with notes of grapefruit and circus peanut. Chunky mouthfeel and long finish.

Poured into a tulip glass. Smells of roasted maple syrup, smells smokey almost. Tastes of smoke, I don’t think I can drink another sip.

first thoughts was this beer smells awesome. woody, smokey, maple syrup out the wazoo, but i didnt peg it for maple syrup, i thought it was vanilla, or bourbon. the taste was just intensely maple syrup veiling a thin smokey flavor. it was thin, and light, and not very good.

JDBaker11058 (1204) - Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Appearance: ruddy orange-brown with a creamy off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma: strongly of maple syrup, with notes of smoked beechwood malts and yes, a hint of smoky, salty bacon. Taste: rauchbier-esque, with smoky, meaty, salty bacon and sweet toasty malts, with a strong injection of maple flavoring. Finish: slightly dry and ashy, with the salty, smoky, and sweet notes fighting for supremacy. Notes: This was exactly as advertised. That said, I didn’t much care for it. The maple flavoring was syrupy and sweet, and just too strong; it was also artificial tasting. Definite marks for creativity; I especially liked the pepto-pink bottle.

Amber pour with a cream head. Maple, bacon, syrup, smoke. Easy on the palate, nose matches the flavor.
