Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale

type: Maple Ale
origin: Newport, Oregon
price: $8.99/22oz

Holy Bacon Doughnut!  If you have ever watched the food channels lineup of terrible shows you would likely see the famous bacon doughnut made at voodoo doughnut in Portland.  So apparently Rogue decided to make a bacon maple ale out of this and put it in a pepto-bismol bottle.  My first thought was well I like bacon and doughnuts and beer so this has to be good.  This beer was made with 13 ingredients including hickory smoked bacon and pure maple flavoring so surprisingly it does taste just like the doughnut does. It is honestly too much to deal with, but I did enjoy and did feel bacon maple drunk.  It is a good thing though that I split this with a friend because otherwise I probably would of passed out and had crazy bacon dreams.  Bacon!

I give them credit for pulling this one off, however it was just a bad idea.  The beer is so thick and full of so much maple and bacon flavor you couldn't really taste much of the remaining 11 ingredients.  I am sure Voodoo Doughnut store is happy about this though and the idea of a doughnut and bacon beer sounds interesting.  This morning though even looking at it makes me regret drinking it.  I am still bacon maple drunk off Bacon Maple Ale.


  1. Looks like you were drinking that in a dark cave.

  2. Yeah, I had this one and it was pretty disappointing. Especially for the price!
