750ml Bottle. The pour was a murky orangey brown almost tea like in color with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing to a scattered film with a small collar and fair runny lacing. The aroma was very sweet and all about maple syrup with a sweet cookie malt and a doughy yeast along with notes of smoke, vanilla, butter and a hint of bacon. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a mild hint of maple syrup at first, but quickly became very smoky with a light bitter bacon ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, and was mostly about the smoke with a touch of bacon coming in at the very end. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a slightly dry, syrupy texture and a mild carbonation. Overall this is the most unusual beer I have ever tasted to date. That being said I did enjoy it and it had a pleasant aftertaste, although a little less smoke would have been more to my liking. I do have to say though, it did remind me somewhat of a glazed doughnut…

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

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.

gyllenbock (4459) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2014
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.

SirLimpsalot (2084) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
@basunen: ganska rökig doft. Smaken är typisk baconsälta och kanske inte mycket annat. Mycket torv och rök. Speciell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

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