Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale (Rogue Ales)

5.6% ABV, 30 IBUs
Purchased at Alley Katz and poured into pint glasses.

His Notes:

This collaboration between fellow Oregon mainstays Rogue Ales and Voodoo Donuts pours a murky orange with a fairly sizable off-white head.  There is a strong maple glaze smell on the nose, sweet on the verge of treacle, with a little smoky bacon the edges. You get more bacon on the first swallow (several different types of smoked malts were used to create the bacon taste), followed by spot-on glazed donut flavors, with very little in the way of traditional hop/malt/yeast flavors.  It’s essentially a novelty beer, but it’s also surprisingly smooth and drinkable, and not as grossly sweet as the sugary nose suggests.  Still, this is a special occasion-only brew, and the ideal food pairing is probably an actual glazed donut.

  3.5 Toasts

  1. I was at Rogue yesterday, and all I could think of looking at the bottles was Pepto-bismol. Glad it didn’t suck!
