Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

When you combine a Rogue Ale with a Voodoo Doughnut it creates Bacon Maple Ale. This crazy concoction contains a baker’s dozen number of ingredients including bacon and maple syrup from one of Voodoo’s signature doughnuts. Although I don’t eat meat I have to admit I was very intrigued by this collision of beer and doughnuts. I wasn’t looking forward to any sort of bacon taste. The first sip is a burst of maple syrup and concludes with a smoky aftertaste that definitely stays with you! Personally the smokiness is too overwhelming. This ale is definitely a required taste that I just didn’t like. I will be sticking with my Dead Guy Ale.
