Definite aroma of smoked Bacon and maple syrup. Taste is similar. Honestly would not drink again. Too interesting of a beer to enjoy.

Aromatics are so interesting but everything else is flat! And not worth the hype... Itís water with bacon and maple syrup flavorings! disappointing...

Bottle. What a crazy beer.........pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is smack your face hickory smokey bacon dough character, a but cakey and tons of maple syrup, aunt jamima up in here. Flavor is just as odd, the doughiness is there to some degree, but lacking sweetness. Loads of hickory smoke, and bacon. I actually ate a glazed doughnut with this and it worked, just needs more glaze sweetness to balance all that smoke and meaty character. Medioum body and a crisp carbonation. Crazy beer all around. I wanna try this doughnut

Big smokey maple ham aroma, fairly intense and well... they nailed that. Flavor comes close, could be a bit sweeter, I see why they went pale, to pick up the breadiness of the doughnut, which they somewhat have done. A successful attempt at something very difficult... now I want to try the chocolate Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale.

baraciisch (2768) - California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Reddish orange in color... Aroma is smoky and sweet malts... Flavor is definitely as advertised.... Prevalent rauch malts with sweet bacony maple syrup notes.... Almost like drinking a rauchbier and pounding pancakes and bacon with maple syrup.... Interesting beer, definitely worth a try but not worth buying more than one

vikingguy (1044) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2012
Hazy amber, small head. Smokey-sweet-maple aroma. Taste - first and foremost, smoke. Then some bacony-maple-doughy sweetness comes through...ok, guess they named this correctly. This isnít near as sweet as I was expecting. Also, less body than I was expecting...this is a bit watery. Itís an average rauchbier with a fancy name. Decent but I was disappointed.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a dark muddy orange with a thumbnail of off-white head. The aroma is indicative of the name with big syrup notes and a hint of roasted pig fat. The taste has more smoke than anything, with notes of burnt twigs, malted syrup, metallic hops in the finish. Medium carbonation and thin/medium body. I couldíve used more body on this to match the fullness of the aroma, but itís actually not bad for a pseudo-Rauchbier. Definitely not for folks who donít like smoked lagers.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours a much lighter color than I expected, almost that of darker whiskey. Thin white head. Aroma is light, but once you really dig into it, there is definitely a maple-bacon-esque aroma prevailing here. The flavor, however, is not as good. Bland but noticable in all the wrong places.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 17, 2012
A - pours clear golden red with high white head that disappears quickly. S - aromas of powdered sugar, doughnuts, maple, bacon, smoke, hickory. Amazing, it actually smells like doughnuts, bacon, and maple. M - lighter body, but with very bold flavors, simple palate. Never ending raunchy smokey bacon tastes. Gross. T - light hops, grasses up front. Maple, bacon, and smoke on the palate. The longest lingering gross fatty cheap smokey bacon end. O - strange. Actually smells like doughnuts and maple. Tastes like smokey bacon, very very cheap fatty bacon. After taste is awful, but it was what they said. 6

Big pink bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is really smokey, with a bit of maple syrup. Flavor is sweet and buttery, I am definitely getting a Eggo waffle with "maple syrup" flavor here. Not as bad as you might think, very drinkable, though my fiancee could not stand it. If you have ever eaten waffles with a ton of syrup and bacon on the side, and wondered "I wonder what this would taste like as a beer..." than this is for you!
