Rodriguez (264) - Quito, - JAN 13, 2013
A very weird beer. Maple syrup aroma, no hops presence, in the flavor not present too. Not head retention at all. The most predominant flavors are those of the smoked malts. It reminds me a little something like a sweet bourbon. The bacon is very subtle. It is a good beer, only for open minds, definitively.

MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown beer with a quickly disappearing light beige head. Aroma of bacon, smoke and caramel/syrup. Basically exactly what the beer name says is what you get. Flavor has of bacon and barbecue in there, sweet syrup notes as well. All the flavors you’d expect are in here, so that’s a plus for me. Finished an entire bottle by myself, so I kinda liked it. Really cool stuff they’re trying to do.

Rated based on notes taken 25 Mar 2012 -- From the bottle, didn’t so much taste the maple definitely tasted the bacon. A good smoke beer. Not nearly as good as MBCP from FB though.

monk191 (1091) - California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Another very unique beer from rogue and voodoo doughnut. Pours a very nice deep red with not too much head. Smells like maple bacon, quite smoky. Taste is maple syrup all the way, with bacon coming in at the finish. A good amount of smokes as well. Not the most complex however. Not as good as their original peanut butter beer, but better then the raspberry. Had in the bottle.

liquidhedonism (184) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2014
22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty. smokey, with hints of bacon (obviously), toast, burned caramel, burned plastic, and failure. Taste/Palate: thin, sweet; finishes savory, astringent, and shitty. Umm...no.

julesjis (150) - Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Poured from a 22. (I wish it was a 3oz) Aroma is a microwaved bacon smell. Flavor is like bacon chapstick and dishwater. The smoky bacon flavor is completely overwhelming and the maple doesn’t even make an appearance.

22oz bottle - The thought of this fantastic concoction, combining donuts, maple icing, and bacon just makes a person’s mouth water. On the surface it sounds like a match made in heaven. And I’m sure if you make it to Voodoo Donuts in Oregon, the real deal has to be insanely tasty. But to try and capture that combo in a beer is indeed a challenge, and I think overall Rogue was successful in doing this. I think this is about as good as it could be without being a big syrupy mess of a beer, with unbalanced flavors. The smokey/bacon aroma shows up nicely in the aroma, with a subtle maple flavor. The doughy donut flavor does show up at first, along with the maple and the bacon, but it’s very watered down. After repeat mouthfulls, the flavors kind of get lost amongst each other with the wateryness. Far from awful, and I give kudos to Rogue for trying this.

Aromas of smoke, bacon, maple. Pours copper brown. Taste is bacon, doughnut, maple, smokiness and caramel. Interesting beer but not an everyday kind

AndySnow (4079) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
How: Bottle.
Where: Systembolaget.
Appearance: Amber colour with an off-white head.
Aroma: Smoked sausage, bacon, caramel, maple.
Body: Medium body and carbonation.
Flavour: Smoke, incense, bacon, a bit sweet.
Comment: Not that bad, interesting, but not sure if I want to try it again. Or could stomach finishing an entire bottle myself.

sonnycheeba (3746) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle shared by snoworsummer. Pours hazy copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is heavy maple, some bacon, light vanilla, some toasted malts, and some doughy yeast notes. Flavor is dry and a little bland, some of the maple and pork flavors but much more subtle than the aroma with light hops and some vanilla/maple sweetness in the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

From a bottle, aged almost two years. Thanks Joe! Pours hazy copper with lots of particles floating around and a fizzy, bubbly beige head. Smells really sweet, like maple syrup, glazed donuts, and also smokey. Tastes like alcohol, smokey, and earthy, a little bit bitter. Light body and low carbonation
