draft at cly with side of bacon. pours dark reddish brown-black with no head. nose doesn’t smell like much, fish oil, salt. flavor has sweet maple syrup, mild back, thin body. oily feel. this is just bad. the oils from the bacon make this unappealing. perhaps if this had a smoked bacon quality it could work but the bacon didn’t come through.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2010
Tap at GI Clybourn. Garnished with floppy bacon. Aroma is note quite right. Has notes of roasted malt, light caramel, and an unclear chemical aroma that is not enticing. Also some bits of bacon fat floating on surface from the bacon garnish. Flavor is also lightly roasty but there is an off flavor here hat pretty much dominates. Not good.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2010
Sampled at the GI FIP (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice near opaque pour dark brown, murky, aromas are a light smokey bacon aroma paired with roasty malts, a touch of cocoa, and sweet caramel. Initial is lighter bodied, a light bitterness sticks to the palate as a sweet maple touch, faint smoke comes in. Largely sweey, caramel and maple with a touch of smoked bacon. Yummy. Very drinkable, sweet slanted with a touch of smoke. Very nice.

Maplewood farm maple bacon stout... Pours a murky dark cola brown with less intense edges topped without any head... Smokey chocolate nose with emphasis on the former... Thin chocolate and smoke flavors with a watery mouthfeel and very light on the carbonation front 7/3/7/3/13
