Continuing the tradition of making every food product ever taste like bacon, Rogue has released a beer that’s sure to be Homer Simpson approved. Called the Voodoo Doughnut, this ale is bacon maple flavored, and comes in a horrifyingly pink bottle. Getting drunk first thing in the morning never tasted so good!
From The Maple Daily:
It generally tastes like a dirty, ashy smoked beer without any of the subtlety of the finer Bamberger rauchbiers. The maple syrup notes pop up now and again, but the smoke flavor, along with fatty hits of unwanted bacon, dominate.
Portland’s Willamette Week had a variety of opinions about the beer, but none of them were positive:
“Smells like a candied ash tray.”
“Well, it is what it’s advertised. But that doesn’t make it good.”
“I need a cigarette to get this taste out of my mouth.”
“If they wanted to make this taste like a bacon maple bar—the bacon isn’t particularly smokey, it’s the salt that stands out. So it misses the mark in addition to being a foul abomination.”
