Orange pour with a slightly off-white head, some lacing, lots of carbonation. Smells like pancakes and bacon being cooked up for breakfast. Very strong smoky flavor, with bacon and maple coming through. The heaviness of the smoke overpowers the beer. No hops flavor gets past the sweetness either.
Definitely a unique tasting experience and enjoyable, despite the smokiness.
Large shared 2012 (?) bottle that didn’t get finished even with 5 people sharing it (although there was plenty of competition in the form of better beers).
Very smoky aroma and too much smoke in the flavor.
Overall: Sound good? ... look into Funky Buddha. This one is a smoky-sweet mess. tightslice (1271) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is smoke, light bacon, very mild maple. Taste is surprisingly crisp... a little bready. I was expecting much more maple / sickly sweet malts, and although it was surprisingly drinkable, it could have used more maple / malt backbone. a_sully (457) - - JUN 11, 2016
Orange hazy body, opaque. Lacy white head. Sweet aroma, with hints of citrus.nice taste tastes very much like glazed donuts

Pours a nice medium amber. Aromas of malt/pepper/smoke. Flavor is smoke/roast malt with a nice sweet maple bite finish and aftertaste. beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2016
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.

Peanut butter taste but watery and a little hoppy. Not so good. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

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. MrHangover (4442) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
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. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 21, 2014
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. monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2014
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.
