Pours a translucent brown with a firm white head. Aroma is smoky and sweet; bacon and maple. Smells interesting and tasty. Flavor is a slight earthy hoppiness up front, not a whole lot going on in the middle, some bread - I canít tell if what Iím tasting is actually the maple or what Iím imagining is the maple; long smoky bacon finish with a smoky aftertaste. I will say it gets better as it warms.

ok, never been one much for novelty beers. that being said, this one is cut above most in that its a rauchbier, sorta. i like the style to an extent. this one had the obvious aroma of bbq and pork products, to a lesser extent though. the flavor is immediately smoky but not overtly so like ive had with some rauchbiers. the smokiness is fleeting, and you are left with a palette of maple syrup and glazed doughnut frosting. honestly, i had a few sips of this throughout the night, and mostly everyone else that tried it had the same reaction. obviously not something youd session, and im sure it was hard to get the balances right, but neat all the same.

22oz bottle. Pours amber with small head. Aroma is bacon, smoke, sugary syrup, maple syrup. Flavor is similar, but the sweetness from the maple is a bit distracting to the smokiness. Thin bodied. Very glad I got to try this, but a bit disappointing.

Pour is dark brownish black out of bottle, aroma brings notes of smoke, bacon, caramelized sugars, some chocolate, maple syrup notes fly in there as well, definitely doesnít really smell like a beer. Taste is a mix of smoky maple syrup with some sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee, hints of vanilla and doughy bread in there as well, but fairly dominated by the smoke and maple syrup. I actually didnít mind this, but it was hard to drink a lot of it...glad to share it!

Rogue did a wonderful job trying to trick the senses....great job of balancing a smokey taste with the buttery taste (which ends up tasting somewhat like bacon grease). Very clever beer. roasty, mapley,pale, light body, thin feel, average carbonation.

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours cloudy copper with a thick beige head and a maple syrup aroma. There is a flat smoky maple flavor that tastes pretty awful. Not a good version of this style.

Bottle poured into glass. I was actually surprised by this one. The aroma, full of maple and smoke, was actually awesome, but Iím sure that polishing off the whole bottle would be tough. Flavor is a little sweet but enjoyable.

Terminus (3149) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 17, 2011
bottle at Hoppy Monk, el paso, tX-pours dark orange with a very slight head around the rim of the glass. wowwwwwwww-huge smoke and sweet maple nose this is crazy. i dont know what to think of this nose-part of me wanted to give it great a great score because of the uniqueness of this however, its somewhat offensive so i couldnt go above the score posted. flavors are all smoke and firewood up front woody smoke then fo9llowed by a big maple surup flavor on the finish with lots of sweetness. wierd and crazy but glad i got to have a free sample of this brew.

650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is maple and a trace of smoke. Taste is a malty sweetness with some smoke and maple with a light hop bitterness in the finish. A decent beer with a light to medium body and light carbonation.

This poured a plain amber color with a beige head. Aroma was very very strong of burnt smokoed bacon and sweet sweet fake maple syrup. Flavor was way less impressive than the aroma. Donít get me wrong the smoke and the maple were still there in full sugary force, but there was no underlying beer at all, just bacon and maple water. If this were done overtop a nicely brwered porter it could have been way better, but I didn;t completley destroy it because of the uniqueness of it all.
