3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured an orange amber color with a whitish head. Aroma of maple and smoked bacon. Flavor tasted just like advertisement; bacon and maple. Pretty rich and tough to slog through alot of it at first. Did get more drinkable with a bit of time.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Pouring mostly clear, the body is a dark golden-orange honey color, and it props up a thin, swirly, creamy off-white film at the head. A sudsy wash across the glass mostly rejoins the body below, leaving no hard lace. The nose is smokey and meaty throughout, definitely showing the effects of the bacon, but the maple component seems artificial, overly saccharine, and forced. Underlying sweet honey-toasted malts do their best to mimic a glazed donut base, but fall short. The flavor shows an odd dichotomy of overly sweet, artificial maple and nitrate-laden smokey bacon. Malts are sweet and toasted, and the sugars are again forced. On the palate, the moderate body is overly syrupy and under carbonated, seeming fairly dull, lifeless, and weighty. Eh, Iíd say this one is a swing and a miss.

Pours reddish brown color with off white head. Aromas of smoked meats and maple syrup. Smokey bacon flavor with sweet maple syrup. Body seems a bit thin for the amount of smoke, could be a bit fuller. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Weird but ok. Couldnít drink more than a few ounces.

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a creamy/foamy beige head. Aroma is like maple smoked bacon or bacon and maple syrup. Near medium body. Starts a bit smoked then goes a bit maple sweet. Itís almost a bit too much. I mean I tend to like smoked, but the beer may be a little too lightweight to carry this much smoke.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer smells exactly like a maple doughnut. I donít get much bacon or salty notes at all but definitely maple doughnut. The beer is decent, not overly sweet like a lot of people mentioned but could certainly be dryer. Overall it is decent and interesting. Thatís not too bad in my book

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Interesting. Aroma is great. Doughnut shop at 5am. Lots of maple, powdered sugar, and sweet fruit aromas. Taste is surprisingly bitter at first, then a lot of sweet maple hits you, a little bacon in there somewhere, and then the finish is like french toast with powdered sugar and syrup. Good try at a weird brew... and they have a good thing going here... but I think it simply needs to be stronger, fuller bodied, and dare I say... sweeter??

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(22oz bottle). Pours a clear orange-amber color with an off-white head. Active carbonation. Some nice lacing. Aroma is maple syrup, savory smoke, and bacon. Taste is sweet with more savory smoke. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Doesnít live up to the aroma. The bacon probably killed the body of this beer. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with Steve and co. Thanks Armin! Orangish appearance with a tan head. Aroma of a pancake breakfast- moderate smoke, meat, maple, caramel. Flavor is pretty over the top, breakfast concoction with flavors of maple syrup, smoked meats, bacon, woody smoke, and caramel. Novelty beer. Hard to get the taste and aroma out of your glass after finishing. Fuck you.
