750ml. Pretty clear orange pour, good two fingers of white. Detained pretty well.

Aroma, solid smoked malt, smoked meat, some sweeter caramel or maple.

Taste, I actually get a lot of maple up front, and a good amount of bready malt. Smoke malt or meats are both a bit lacking to me. Some smoked beachwood as it warns more. I'm left with the maple and some toasted notes..and a little more smoke also as it warms. I like it, just wish there was "more".

Lighter bodied, pretty easy to drink. No abv, but it was lower to begin with. I think it suffers a bit from the effort to make this a low abv drinker. Also at the price... A one time try among friends probably. Needs a more robust malt bill and more smoke to be top notch.
An interesting effort from rogue though.

Ok so I went to a beer store and got this just really for the novelty of it. I didn't have very good expectations...and for good reason. The appearance is decent with a nice amber color. Smell is just as the name implies...smoke....bacon...maple with a little hop scent to it. Taste was a little overwhelming. The maple and bacon hits you like a brick right up front. Cant really taste much else. If it would have stayed at that it might not have been so bad. Then you get the huge taste of what is like liquid smoke. Overwhelming smoke flavor that was just too much! This is a good novelty beer but not much else!

When it is fresh it does not really drink well. The bacon dare i say was a little overwhelming with maple sweetness. Had a hard time drinking it with ease. However after this had a year age on it, wow. The flavors had mellowed together very well. The bacon had softened an the blend tasted like bacon maple pancake. With an malty ale finish. My only regret is that I didn't buy more to age. I am saddened by this. Please make this again. I will by a case or two and let it sit.
