You might remember from my quick Portland trip re-cap from last summer. One of the photos I shared was the Maple Bacon Glazed Doughnut from VooDoo Doughnuts. Not only did I fall in love with their amazing flavor combo for breakfast, I also fell in love with their Maple Bacon Ale from Rogue Brewery. I was pretty bummed when we got home and we couldn’t find it at home.
Well last week, Rogue released a new VooDoo inspired flavor; Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Ale. They have a limited run of it at our local liquor store and we picked up a couple of bottles and I cracked one open tonight for dessert. I had really high hopes for this guy but unfortunately, it fell a bit short. It smelled wonderful! All the flavors were coming through and I got excited for that first sip. It was not too sweet, definitely chocolate-y and a little banana-y but it was lacking in the peanut butter department. It’s kind of a strange thing to say when talking about a beer. It’s definitely worth checking out. If you don’t have it locally, you can find it online at the Rogue website. They have both the new Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Ale and last years Bacon Maple Ale.
