That auburn and amber color kind of surprised me, I was expecting something darker to carry flavors like maple and bacon. The aroma was heavenly, really hit those maple notes big time. A little bit of smoke and sugar after that. Bacon didn't pop for me though.

Gigantic amounts of smoked malts and maybe even liquid smoke in this one. Frankly, too much. Bacon still being searched for. This beer started out with low expectations, then the aroma got them all high, then the taste and mouthfeel was too dominated by smoke to allow everything in the aroma to shine in the taste. I could see this beer being tweaked to be pretty good. Just not there as is though.
