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.

Pours very dark brown, with a very thick, quickly dissipating head.
Powerful aromas of bacon and maple immediately waft up from the bottle and glass. Smells like a Canadian breakfast in a bottle.
Tastes of very smoky bacon, with hints of maple coming through. Surprisingly not all that sweet, which was a welcome surprise.
Overall, easy to dismiss as a novelty beer, but this one has some legs, and I could definitely drink it again.

Brune très foncée, jolie mousse beige. Odeur de bananes extra mûres et de sucre semi artificiel. En bouche, bizarre. Métallisée, peut être un peu vieille... Sinon, chocolaté et mince en bouche. Arrière goût plutôt inusité: ferreux. Pas aussi impressionnant que la bouteille ou le style annoncé.

Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot.
Brownish with a small head. Aroma and taste of smoke, bacon, butter and something sweet. Strange and not really my kind of beer.

@basunen: ganska rökig doft. Smaken är typisk baconsälta och kanske inte mycket annat. Mycket torv och rök. Speciell.

Not really my cup of tea but it definitely tasted like a maple bacon doughnut. It gets points for originality.
