Voodoo Bacon Maple Ale

  • SRM Color : 17
  • Brewer: Rogue Ales
  • Brewer's Description:  A Collision of Crazies Rogue Ales has collided with Voodoo Doughnut to create Bacon Maple Ale! This unique artisan creation contains a baker’s dozen number of ingredients including bacon and maple syrup from one of Voodoo’s signature doughnuts.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Conic or Nonic
  • Russ' rating: 8.5 of 10
  • With the brew: Dropping the Sunday bosses
  • Comments: Normally I would write off a beer like this as a gimmick or novelty brew, but Rogue has consistently turned out good brews, and I raid with a ~AWESOME~ group of people every Sunday in World of Warcraft in a raid group we call "Beer and Donuts". It was only fitting that I give this one a try. It pours normally with average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubbles, but what struck me was that the nose was not sweet or syrupy as I would have expected, but almost woody with barely a hint of sweetness. The head settled quickly but there was wet lacing on the glass as I drank it and it never felt flat. The flavor is shockingly unexpected. Its smokey and rich, leaning heavily on the savory side of its bacon maple lineage. There is a barely perceptible hint of sweetness but the woody smokey flavor makes the beer delightfully rich and serves the hops well as a complimentary co-mingling of different but oddly well suited partners. I would definitely have this one again.
Do you agree? Do you think I completely missed on this one? Feel free to leave a comment below, give me a +1, or "Like" my post!
