Bacon Maple Ale

BREWERY:
Rogue Brewing Company

LOCATION:
Newport, Oregon

STYLE:
Brown Ale

COLOR:
Light Copper

ALCOHOL:
Not Stated



Well, this has to be the weirdest beer I've ever had.  Rogue Brewing teamed up with a local doughnut shop called Voodoo Doughnut and created a beer called Bacon Maple Ale.  If you like sprinkled doughnuts then this beer is for you.  It has a really sweet taste due to actual maple syrup in the ingredients and then changes to a stronger aftertaste because of the bacon in the ingredients.  This beer is nuts!! Great at first, then, depends on how your sweet tooth is, changes to a more normal but still strange aftertaste.  Bacon isn't really a dominate taste in this beer, it's more for controlling the sweetness.   It only comes in 750 mL bottles which means that you need more people around you while tasting it.  I only had about 6 ounces before I couldn't drink anymore.  This beer is really, really an acquired taste so good luck.
