Sampled at GABF with Moreau. Yet, another bomb. Pours a deep brown body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is light chocolate malts, maybe some smoke in the back but very tame overall. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of watered down chocolate milk, light smoke and roasted malts.

Drank in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a ruddy brown color. A big nose of bacon, smoke and chocolate. Basically has these flavors, very clearly bacon, but is thin and needs much more. Good though.

Chocolate and bacon in a porter? I really want to like this one more but somethingís not quite right. But Iím sick of regular Blue Moon so they should brew up a couple more batches of this so I can try it again.

Pours a medium brown plum .. medium foam .. light lacing .. . odd smell, lots of cocoa and fake cocoa powder .. . light notes of bacon, dark brown bread crust, thin cooking chocolate and some dark chocolate .. . mouthfeel is about what you would expect, medium to light .. . flavours come out light but i get what they were up too - i hope this wins, i enjoyed this the most!!
.. . . And I gave that man directions even though I didnít know the way, because thatís the kind of man I am this week.
