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 don’t know why this beer gets panned so much. Good balance and the smoke malt is restrained - which is nice.

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. It’s 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 (3474) - 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

jhamp9 (1317) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours a clear red copper with a good sized off white head that dissipates quickly and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is smoky bacon and maple syrup. Taste is smoke, maple syrup, some malt and a hint of bacon. Aftertaste is lightly smoky. It’s thin enough on the palate to make it work. It really is pretty good. Not something to drink daily but something that would be good with breakfast.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2012
750 ml pink painted bottle via local trade. Pours a semi-cloudy deep amber color with a small, lasting off-white head. Aroma of bacon, brown sugar, campfire, toffee, syrup- sugary and smoky. The flavor is the same, but not as smoky- more sweet, really. Medium-bodied, with a syrupy, smoky moutfheel and moderate carbonation. Why does everyone hate this so much? It delivers exactly what it promises. I liked it.

Sampled at the StL RB gathering. It poured a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of smoked meats and maple syrup. The taste was of smokey bacon with sweet maple syrup. Glad we shared this one.
