You should be drinking one and eating the other but not mixing them together in a brew. not my glass of beer.

I don't get why they didn't just sell a rauchbier kit. All the same I'd rather have a Schlenkerla.

I got a promotional email from NB this morning with this beer kit as the featured item. Never tried it, but I've had similar recipes. I don't think I would want to bre five gallons of this beer, but would like to sample it.

Rogue makes Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Porter... in a bottle the color of Pepto Bismol.  I have heard that it sells very well, but I have less than no desire to try it.  Bleh.

Ack... Voodoo. It's not good, nor is it a porter. A little roast would help but I still wouldn't pay for a pint let alone make 5 gallons.
Thank you BEER!

Ugh. If there is any beer that is simply a gimmick, it's that one. It's like drinking a smoked, glazed donut in Karo Syrup form. Disgusting.

Yup. That is most disgusting beer I have ever had.
So it goes.

A local brewery here, 7th Sun, makes a doughnut beer.  It's dry doughnutted with Krispy Kremes in the keg.  Tastes just like Krispy Kreme.

I'm generally opposed to the idea of meat in beer but I tried a brown ale on cask with bacon and it was actually pretty good but one 8oz. pour was enough.
