Small light tan head, sticky has-been lacing. Cap and collar.

Definitely get the maple on the nose. Stanky smoke notes.

Taste is somewhat muddled. Yes, maple and bacon and smoke but all kind of thrown together.

Medium mouthfeel, plus carbonation.

Good overall but kind of mashed. Only recommended for huge smoked beer fans, otherwise pass. Thanks mj0126!

Thanks to BPK59 for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice darker brown black hue with a thin brown head that leaves thin lacing.

S - Aromas of light bourbon, faint smoke, maybe a little maple flash.

T - Taste is loads of maple sweetness, light some, faint bacon grease. Awfully sweet and weird with some faint bourbon notes.

M - Mouthfeel is rather thin and watery.

O - Overall this was a disappointment. Thin, not much bourbon, heck not much bacon either. Glad to try it.
