Aroma is like breakfast. Hickory maple bacon. Smells good and sweet. The beer goes downhill from there. Too sweet. Share this with multiple folks. I had half left over and couldn't stomach the thought of drinking more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served from the fridge, its dark amber orange with sticky tan-orange head. It smells of maple and oranges, while chilled, overwhelmingly maple, hickory and smoke as it warms. The flavor is heavily smoked, with a touch of soy and just a hint of bacon. Its sweet, syrupy but fairly viscous, with sharp bitterness and a touch of acid with lively carbonation. After some warming it thins up a bit, tasting a little like maple mineral water with candied sugar and toasted buttered bread crust. I think they could have pulled it off better as a stout (? perhaps?), but then again, how did I expect a bacon maple ale to taste? Unique, for sure.

Bottle:   Amberish, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Odd and somewhat of a plastic smoke like nose.   It appears to be like smoke infused maple, but it seems sickly sweet and a bit plastic like.   Yeah, okay... pale smoke, stale maple syrup, some ash and plastic like bacon on the tongue.   Lets just say its a little difficult to choke down.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   While I would love to try me some Bacon Maple Bars from Voodoo Doughnut, this beer is difficult to finish.   Sickly sweet at times, fake maple and smoke, smoke that is supposed to be like bacon.   Novelty for sure, and unfortunately one that isnt worth the $13 for a bottle. &nbps Neat label and silkscreen, but thats about it.

750ml bottle thanks to Craig. The aroma is smoky, bacon grease, powdered sugar. The flavor follows the aroma. This is not my thing. Glad I tried it.

750 thanks to Craig. Pours a deep orange/brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is smoky and sugary. The flavor is pixie sticks, some light tartness, smoke and more candy. OK.

kathouse (1626) - Nevada, USA - JUN 29, 2012
A medium amber beer has an off white foam head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of maple syrup, burnt sugar, and a tiny hint of chocolate. Cloyingly sweet with flavors of maple and sugar. Cant taste any bacon, but the smoked malts are definitely in the finish. Slightly bitter and mildly dry. Interesting.

odinstyr (741) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pours a clear red with an off-white head. Smells of bacon, maple syrup. Taste is sweet, then bitter, strong bacon flavor with a good maple presence - not very beer like but tastes like breakfast.

I'm halfway through and I've never thought of pouring a beer out til now. It's interesting, which is the only thing keeping me drinking. It's got a lot going on, great aroma, predominant maple taste with a sugary finish. On paper seems great, just doesn't really work as a beer, IMHO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy copper. Thin brown head. Maple syrup gives way to some bacon. Tastes of sugar wheat ( donut) obviously. Yeasts leaves early. Almost great. Missing something ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells pleasant, smoked bacon, mild sweet maple syrup. Clear copper, thin white head. Taste was like a watered down version of the aroma, Bacon, sweet maple in the background. Hops come into play toward the finish. Overall I am new to smoked ales, this offering will be my last. Bacon is good with pancakes, not in beer.
