Shared one of these guys, you could smell the maple syrup from a mile away. Wasn't as sweet as I was expecting though. Did get some smokiness on the back end of the beer, but mostly just tastes like it smells. Maple syrup-y. Aftertaste is like I just ate a lot of pancakes. Do I really want to drink maple syrup? No. Is this beer a crime against beer like some of these reviews suggest? No. Glad I drank it for the experience, but no need to buy again.

When cold, I got some nice maple notes and the smoky bacon flavors were subdued. However, as it warmed, it just turned into a smoky mess.

Literally my first and only drain pour. Worst beer I have ever tried. Tastes like grease and liquid smoke. Just awful.

Beer is absolutely awful. Tastes of sweet salty maple mixed with some nasty base light beer. This was drain poured.

Smells pleasant, smoked bacon, mild sweet maple syrup. Clear copper, thin white head. Taste was like a watered down version of the aroma, Bacon, sweet maple in the background. Hops come into play toward the finish. Overall I am new to smoked ales, this offering will be my last. Bacon is good with pancakes, not in beer.
