2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bomber into a pint glass. The immediate aroma is smoke, smoke and more smoke. It is a hazy, apricot color. The taste is largely smokey, with a touch of maple but certainly no doughnut sweetness that the beer’s namesake would lead you to believe. The aftertaste is lingering and is actually pleasant after the initial smoke flavor dissipates. You get a hint of bacon fat and sugary sweetness as the flavors fade. Overall this beer is very misleading and fairly disappointing. With a lighter smoke flavor, some of the more sweet flavors might come through. Better as a partner to chili as opposed to dessert.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750 ml Pepto Bismol colored pink bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate fizzy pancake colored head that lasted through the first sip and left no lace. The aroma is pleasant and reminiscent of maple syrup and bacon. The flavor is another matter. There is no sign of maple at all. Very smokey, almost like drinking an ashtray. Unappealing. Thin bodied. I finished the first glass I poured for myself but the rest of it I left in the bottle. Disappointing.

Bottle poured into a teku. The beer is a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma reminds me a lot of a maple stick doughnut. The beer is kind of old, so i wonder if maybe the bacon character has left the beer, because i dont get much if any of that. Very sweet and sugary beer. Not something to drink in quantity, but in a 4 ounce sample this could be fine.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
