high amount of maple flavor, as close to syrup as you can get. the bacon is not as strong despite the insistence of other raters. this is the kind of beer you want with breakfast pastries.

Bottle courtesy of James’s monster cellar at a tasting at his place. Pours a lightly hazed ruby tinged amber with a medium beige head. Smells like a waitress at I-Hop. Cigarettes and maple syrup. Sadness, disappointment, and the failed promises of childhood Christmases. Maple bacon-smoke, old leftover doughnuts at Drunken Dougnnuts. Medium bodied, smoky and sweet. Syrup and smoked dougnuts. Sweet caramelized sugar and strange toast with a bit of toast. Very strange. So strange.

Pink bomber poured a hazy orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of maple, bacon, pancakes and light smoke. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth watery finish. Flavors of maple, pancakes, bacon and light smoke with a smooth watery lingering maple finish. Definatly a breakfasty beer!

I am quite torn on this beer. I thought the maple aroma was nice if not a bit pronounced and I liked the flavor but I didn’t get the bacon. Strange brew but enjoyable. I like that the brewers take crazy chances with the beers and hope they continue to do so. This is excellent with breakfast or with a dessert. Great bottle too.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Smokey bacon and maple nose and taste. The bacon and maple are well pronounced but not overpowering. Maple sweetness followed by a smokey finish. Surprisingly good, but not something I’d drink more than once in a blue moon.

Loved this tasty dark magic treat. Heavy maple syrup kisses the lips on the first sip then sweet smoke coats all senses. Great balance, well crafted and a delicious elixir for both breakfast and BBQ.

Obnoxiously pink bottle. Pours out a slightly cloudy amber color with a fading white head. Aroma is of maple syrup, pancakes and smoky bacon. Taste is straight forward breakfast. Smoky bacon, maple syrup, pancake batter, bacon and maple. Interesting idea.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle from pikapp327. Brown pour with little to no head. Aroma is maple, caramel, and toasted bread. Taste is kinda gross, maple, sticky, astringent, and cake. Weird finish.

My brother and I sat down and tried this beer together. The aroma is like huffing a five gallon bucket of maple syrup. The taste made made us both cringe with disgust, as it was very smoky and maple syrupy. "why would anyone make something so disgusting", my brother Said. I agree, I struggled through the first couple swigs, and after about a half hour, I poured it down the sink where it belongs.
