a few months ago, i saw the brewer and some employees sneaking back to the cold room with a few bottles of rogues maple bacon beer. i knew something was up, and apparently it was this beer. made with smoked peppered bacon, this is a real different glass of beer. it pours rather dark, brown and syrupy looking, with a decent almost pure white head. the nose is really smokey, peaty, like scotch, with a robust dark malt profile. the flavor is crazy, smokey like a rauchbier at first, but then comes this intense black pepper flavor and a distinctly bacon finish. i guess i should qualify "bacon finish". it isnt greasy or anything, but there is a very recognizable pork fat taste floating around in there with all the smoky flavors. i think it comes together well, and is certainly an ambitious brew. its got a ton of body and a slipper sort of mouthfeel. im impressed with this, go get some before its gone.

Serving type: on-tap

4.1/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A nice head sits atop the ice tea brown liquid; good retention and lacing action

Smell: Caramel, with undertones of bacon and a hint of smoke

Taste: Caramel, up front, with the bacon flavor developing by mid-palate; nice balance, after the swallow, with a hint of smoke adding another dimension to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice take on the style; the bacon and smoke are additive, which is a nice twist as these flavors can overwhelm a beer when not handled with care

Serving type: on-tap
