Good (especially for a smoked beer). Itís brown and has only a little head. Taste has everything on the label except I canít find the doughnut.

Bottle. Good head to start on dark amber. HUGE aroma turned off the people I offered a taste to. Big maple notes start of the scent but an equal weight of smokiness from the malt and a good backing of bacon. Beer is not the first thought that comes to mind when smelling the beer. Add the word "doughnut" and I do think of a maple glazed pastry. The aroma may not be attractive particularly for a beer but it does arouse curiousity. As my wife pointed out the smoked malt gives the beer a bit of an ashy flavour. Beer seems to have a bit of an Amber metallic note. Bacon note seems strongest in the finish and then the ash comes back in the aftertaste. I like experiments and applaud the effort but would not seek out again. Tastes better than the pizza beer last month!

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Felix. This was a fun beer to pass around and watch how various people reacted to it. Very hazy medium amber appearance with a relatively short-lived head. The aroma sets the stage for a unique tasting experience: sweet maple bacon and cake-like malts fill the nose. The flavour is very heavy on the smoke, with a sweet maple base. Nothing really offsets the sweetness here, and the smoke really comes on strong. It is certainly does what it sets out to do. It tastes exactly like a maple-bacon-donut. Parksy said it tastes like a McGriddle in a glass. We werenít convinced that this is a good thing until Felix pointed out that we were considering this beer outside of proper context. This is a breakfast beer. It should be drunk in the morning with a plate of eggs and hashbrowns. I have one more bottle in my fridge and I will be serving it for brunch at some point. Quirky, weird, unbalanced, but I liked it for what it is.

Blairgus (4183) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2012
9 mar 2012, bottle. Amber, clear, no bubbles. Smells like maple syrup drizzled over McDonald's sausages. Thin, creamy body. Taste is disappointing. Lightly smoked cheap sausage. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maple and slight smoke jump out of glass. Pours slightly hazy copper with white head. Taste ovmaple with nice blend if smoke. Some fleshy components from bacon in aroma and mouthfeel. Honestly, I donít know why this beer gets panned so much. Good balance and the smoke malt is restrained - which is nice.

(22oz bomber) clear orange with wispy tan bubbles. Nose and taste of applewood bacon, syrupy sweet maple syrup, woodo, just gross. Hated it.

beernbourbon (1558) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Glorious pink bottle shared by Peter at STL RB gathering, thanks for the opportunity! Pour is deep brown with a very thin layer of whitish foam. Aroma is in-your-face with huge doses of maple, bacon, and smoke (like loads of artificial smoke notes). Flavor is also wicked smokey with hints of bacon, faint nuttiness and a touch of maple. Delivers on a strange promise. I liked this. Itís huge, but its totally worth a try. Thanks Peter!

zentropy (2) - Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012 does not count
A very interesting beer. Pours orange copper with a thinning beige head. Maple syrup and smoke aroma. Lighter side of medium body. Tastes like smokey bacon and maple syrup soaked pancakes. The smokey flavor is a tad harsh, but would probably mellow with some aging. A smokey bitterness lingers in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Ryan. Cheers dude ! Nice, bright amber pour with a small off white head. Solid lacing left about. Nose is full of sweet, smoked malts and not a lot else. Very sweet resembling maple and smells a lot like cooked bacon over a wood fire. Sweet hickory is very forward in the taste. Maple and bacon is definitley the keystone to this beer. Smoky as all hell with sweet caramel and maple syrup notes coming through. I guess it showcased the beer it was aiming to be
