This beer has it all... aroma, taste, aftertaste, head... drink it for what it is... a fun beer. It delivers as advertised on the label. Beer can be fun, and Rogue hit a home run with this one!

Loved this tasty dark magic treat. Heavy maple syrup kisses the lips on the first sip then sweet smoke coats all senses. Great balance, well crafted and a delicious elixir for both breakfast and BBQ.

Has a lovely dark colour with an incredible aroma. Slight bacon flavour that is calmed with a maple aftertaste. Could only drink 1 bottle of this per session.

Pours dark orange with a large yellow-tan head. Smells smoky, woody, and sweet. Taste is sweet and smoky. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale finishes with some smoke and mild maple syrup sweetness.

This is very interesting beer, you can smell the maple aroma as soon as you open it. Once tasted, bacon and maple combine very nicely. As my friends and I described it " breakfast" in a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2012 22 oz. bottle (yeah, the Pepto Bismol colored bottle) served in a shaker- I immediately snagged this bottle when I saw it on the shelf, so letís see if that was a good thing. Poured a transparent slightly darkened copper color, low carbonation, solid one finger head with a few frog eyes upon the surface refused to diffuse even after threatening to call Obama upon it, and it laced nicely as well. Aroma of .... HOLY S&)T- glazed doughnuts, REAL maple syrup (I see "authentic Texas syrup" down here and I laugh my ass off- back in MI the Amish and I would hit up the maples in the spring and light it up!), maple, and a splash of smoke- very nice! Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt is there but suddenly that glazed doughnut sensation isnít a joke- itís there in the tasting as well! The finish transcends from sweetness to the gritty, animalistic goodness that is bacon covered in maple syrup. This would be nothing short of AWESOME on a day off, early in the morning, paired with pancakes, bacon, and harda$$ coffee, so itís a little disappointing in the evening. But Iím smitten by it- those that arenít, quityerbitchiní, getinthekitchen, and bakemeapie. That and (original writing neutered for those that still have to tuck)- HA! (Makes ya wonder what my 1000th rate will be, wonít it?)

(bottle - 750 ml) I donít know why this was rated so low. Cloudy rust color with a thin white head. Huge and absolutely delicious maple and smoked meat aroma. Smells exactly the same as maple syrup over bacon. Flavor doesnít back down on the flavors. Begins with a big and heavy smoke flavor that I thought was going to completely dominate the flavor but then the maple comes through full force at the end and blooms more when it warms. Outstanding.

25.4 fl oz / 750mL bottle into a pint glass. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, and took it out and let it warm up about a half hour or so before opening. Aroma: Oh man, smoky, burned bacon fat. And itís strong too. Tucked in behind that is some bready, yeasty aroma, and a sliiiiiiiiiiiight pancake syrup sweetness. Appearance: Translucent, hazy darkish rust. Thick frothy off-white head that lingers forever. Taste: Fried. Fat-back. Bacon. A little bit of maple sweetness tied in with it, and all backed up by some malt. Palate: Rich and full bodied, but also very smooth. A pretty moderate finish; flavors linger a bit. Overall: I wish there were more doughnut and maple flavors in this; itís really dominated by the bacon. That being said, this beer is excellent. It is the most bacon-y thing Iíve had besides bacon. If you donít like bacon, you should avoid this one. If you do like bacon, praise the bacon gods, because this beer is delicious.
