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.

Thanks to whoever brought this one to Capone’s. Sampled from a sampler glass.

A - Pours murky amber orange with a small half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of lots of smoke, a bit of maple sweetness and not much else. I like it for what it is but I really don’t get a lot of maple or doughnut. More like a slightly sweet smoked porter.

T - Starts off with plenty of smoke slowly giving way to a mix of sweetness and even more smoke and that is about it. The nose are decent but the taste was a big let down. The finish is just like the beginning, smoke and sweetness, lingering for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smokey, slightly sweet, feel that lingers through the finish.

O - Not bad but not great either. This is mostly just a glorified sweet smoked ale. If you have a good imagination you might like this one but just based off the beer it is just OK.

Pours brown with a small head. Overly sweet maple aroma with some bacon. Sugary bacon fat flavor. Bleh.

vulcanmeister (196) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours light brown with a tan head. Aroma sweet maple. Flavor smoky, maple sugar, and bacony. Too much on the smokiness. I was expecting more..but hey...this was unique...one time tasting....and the bottle is marvelous!

Butelka Barwa bursztynowa. Piana drobna, obfita, trwała. Słodki zapach syropu klonowego i lukru. W smaku syrop klonowy, palony kabel, bardzo słaba nuta wędzonego bekonu. Goryczka niska. Piwo nudne i nijakie.

Abijen (1472) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, maple, wood, forest and resin. Tastes maple, woods, watery. Strange, not bad. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

BOTTLE. Got a lot of smoked ham up front with a very sticky sweet maple finish, seemed to be very cloudy & copper in colour. With a very sweet & sticky aroma from the maple.... Sourced from Cellarbrations @ Capel
