Rogue makes a lot of great beers, at the same time they also make some interesting flavors like the Sriracha Stout. Even the exotic flavors somehow work as delicious beers, the Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale is firmly in that category. As soon as you open this beer you are hit with a smokey maple bomb; created with smoked malt and real bacon.
The nose is full of smoke and maple sweetness. The smokey characteristics translate in the taste as well with a trailing sweetness. The finish is a nice foil for the sweetness with a slight bitterness from the malts and hops. The taste is intriguing and addictive, causing you to continue to reach for the next sip.
