3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Beer, Bocce and Boozer tasting. Light brown color with a tiny off-white head. Smells strongly of ham, smoke, maple syrup. The taste isnít nearly as heavy as the nose. Thereís plenty of smoky flavors, meaty ham hock. This isnít nearly as sweet as I thought it would be. The bodyís a bit thin and watery. Light carbonation. Overall, I didnít find this as extreme as I thought it might be. While I canít say I love this beer, I really didnít hate it either. The bottle certainly stands out, too.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smell is amazing, very similar to a voodoo bacon maple bar. I was surprised to taste the smokiness, I think a better name would be the "voodoo smoked bacon maple beer". I also expected more sweetness from a beer created to resemble a donut. Overall I would recommend drinking this beer once to anyone who loves the combination of bacon and maple.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL bottle, no date. $14.99 or $13.99 at BevMo! Mission Valley. Clear medium dark amber with a beige head, not long lasting, and originally about one finger. Smoky salty nose with plenty of somewhat sweet maple light powdered sugar notes. I also canít help but think Iím getting a little powdered sugar. Flavor is pretty much the same with a lot less sweetness and some added sulfur, and a fair carbonic bite in the finish, which was dry and ashy with bitterness peaking at a 2-3. Just a little toasty. Canít say as I ever actually got bacon. Low prickly carbonation with a light to medium body. I was actually surprised that the nose was decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark Cloudy Brown color with a pretty foamy head. The smell is like something out of a Perkins breakfast platter with Maple Syrup, Bacon and Pancakes. The taste is more or less the same with some burnt oak notes and yeasts. The flavors are rich but the smoky notes get in the way of what are otherwise rich flavorful maple and bacon flavors. Itís average bodied with light carbonation and itís fairly creamy. This is clearly a novelty beer but itís certainly one of the better ones out there, if you can get passed the unbalanced smokiness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is smoky maple malt. cotton candy. Appearance is dark copper apricot with small tan head. A bit hazy. Taste is smoke forward. Maple malt sweetness very present as well. A very smoky beer though. Fair amount of hops bitterness present. Some creaminess. Palate is medium-. Fairly crisp and refreshing. Not thick and gooey as I had expected. Overalll a very nice smoked beer. It does remind me of smoky maple bacon, though I am not so sure about the doughnut part. Expected a bit more though, especially for the price.... but again, an impressive smoked beer.

Pours dark orange with a large yellow-tan head. Smells smoky, woody, and sweet. Taste is sweet and smoky. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale finishes with some smoke and mild maple syrup sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is straight up of bacon, smoke and maple syrup, some woody notes and smoked sausage, and sugar. The flavor follows the nose with lots of bacon and smoke, with some of the maple syrup in the back end, again woody notes and smoked sausage. The body is on the lighter side of medium, with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty different brew. Its good, but not something I think everyone will like.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Store brand generic artificially flavored maple syrup mixed with melted styrofoam and packed in a pink bottle with a bunch of enticing sounding dessert-ish words. This shit was foul and left a taste in my mouth that reminded me of being 4 and eating something that was inedible...my 35 years of intelligence made me stop at two sips though, I wish I was this smart when I was 4.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Panama City, Fl - Chanís Wine World (thanks to the wife for bringing it back for me) - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light copper, slightly murky, little to no head. Aroma has essences of maple syrup and link sausage. Flavor has some smoked sausage notes, some pancakes and maples syrup. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and tinny. Thought this had the potential to be a cloying mess - but was pleasantly surprised. My son is a huge Voodoo Doughnuts fan - will save the bottle for him.

2.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Red pour with tan head. Nose gets very smokey characters with maple. Taste is the same, extremely smokey and bacon just doesnít work for me. Could not finish beer but worked nice to cook with. At $14.99 wont buy again.
