I love Rogue, bacon and maple bars and bacon maple bars... but that stuff is nasty.
Tastes like liquid smoke.

I haven't actually tried it.  Somehow I'm not surprised to hear your assessment.

Gross.  I would take the free range coastal water over that every day. :P

My friend drove quite a few hours to try a bacon beer in Michigan (can't remember the brewery) and he was very disappointed....I just laughed ::)

I'm crying tears of joy as I type this.

Is this really the first you've heard of this beer Weaze?  I posted a picture of the label months ago in a different bacon related thread in which Denny had linked a photo of a Voodoo Bacon Maple Doughnut. Which by the way is a thing of divine inspiration.  As a sweet bready snack... delicious.  As a beverage...not so much.

Haven't tried this beer yet but would like to...at least once.  I stand with the "don't knock it until you try it" camp. 

Afterall...I am a BBQ fan.  ::)

Bar-b-q is fantastic and sure experience the beer for yourself.  I've seen lot's of comments from folks that claim to "love it".  I have to think they're Rogue agents. I've tried it, it aint good, I'm knocking this b!t@& out of the park.

It  gives me the visual of pouring beer over my pancakes and bacon then putting in a blender.  :-\

I'm not sure what that would taste like but I wouldn't do that "on purpose"...if you get my drift.  ;)  :)

That just sounds wrong.

I recall an old Zymugy ad featuring "Raspberry Antelope Hops." (If we don't stock it you probably don't want it.)

I haven't tried the Rogue one but I've tried a bacon beer before.  It's an interesting experience but I wouldn't want a glass of it.  I didn't even finish the four ounce sample.

I just had one this weekend and I FREAKIN' loved it. It was like breakfast in a bottle. The aroma and flavor was smokey bacon with hints of maple syrup. (drool)
I have made some bacon beers that have had the smokiness but never really grabbed that bacon flavor.
These guys have given me something to strive for when I make mine again.
I thought that this beer was a hit. They were going for a bacon maple ale and whether you like it or not, that is exactly what it was.
And no, I'm not a rogue agent.

Interesting. I'm wondering how they got the maple flavor to show through in the final beer. I would think that just using maple syrup would scrub out the actual flavor as it gets fermented out, similar to honey. Aging over maple chips, maybe?

I think maple extract is the most likely answer.  I can pretty much guarantee it wasn't maple chips.
