The taste wasn’t all that strong either. I definitely discovered some of the syrup with a very relaxed smokiness. Touches of bacon fat and a little bit more of the sugary caramel. I thought it was balanced pretty well. I don’t necessarily think the flavor was world-class, however it wasn’t all that bad to tell the truth. Just different I guess.
The mouthfeel was medium to medium/thin. I thought it would be much fuller. Oh well. It was quite dry and somewhat chewy. The carbonation was decent, however not a terrible amount of flavor was left behind on the palate.
Well, I didn’t think this beer was THAT bad. I don’t think it is something that I would want to drink everyday, but I’m glad I got to try it. It’s quite unique and I applaud Rogue for creating it. I’d drink it again if it were offered. I think it could pair well with the cooler weather. The drinkability wasn’t real good, but I made it through the bottle with no trouble. So, if you guys are looking to try something a tad different, give the Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale a try a see what you think. Some will be turned off, although I do think it has its place in the beer world. Be sure to let me know how you interpreted it if you’d like.
Thanks for reading and commenting everyone. I really appreciate it.
Until next time. Cheers.
