#1 the beer brand Rogue and #2 a Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple flavored ale before?? Well turns out Rogue actually brews a ton of unique flavored beer. Even Mr. Dr. was shocked when we saw this one though. We stumbled upon this very interesting bottle in a little place called Beer World right around the corner from our apartment. I must say, from someone that works in advertising and media, the bottle caught my eye. A glistening bright pink prize in the midst of dark, dreary looking brews. Our jaws dropped and we were so intrigued we had to try it. The suspense of a bacon and maple flavored beer was killing us.
We got home, opened the bottle and immediately got a whiff of bacon, I kid you not. It really did smell like bacon. We poured it, and started to smell the hints of maple but overall, it had a very smokey smell and taste. It did taste like a true mix of both but was very heavy…too heavy for me. After having one glass, I felt I had eaten a meal. I would probably recommend it to someone who likes dark beer and just so happens to be a bacon lover too. While I was sipping I couldn’t help but wonder how this would taste during a good brunch. Maybe a Rogue Voodoo Ale will be served the next time I cook breakfast as a compliment to eggs or french toast. Scratch that. What I meant was, maybe a Rogue Voodoo Ale will be ordered at the next place I go to breakfast and order eggs or french toast.
