Look into the heart of darkness of this pitch black beauty. Take in the sweet caramel and roasted malty notes on the nose with a suggestion of the bacon goodness within. This full-bodied, rich and creamy oatmeal stout trots out a bold, unbridled taste that comes from a unique infusion of local Ottawa Valley heritage-raised “Pork of Yore” fine bacon. Blending in roasted malt and oatmeal for a solid footing, this smooth, dark beer has the perfect finish hinting of the fine swine contained within.

Subtle aroma of coffee, chocolate, and very faint notes of bacon. Opaque dark brown color with a minimal head. Medium body with an average carbonation. Mild bitterness with some sweetness. Unfortunate absence of bacon flavour, but still a solid beer

Bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt and a little smokiness. Medium body. Sweetly malty. A little iron and saltiness throughout. It’s decent, definitely unique, but morrre baaaaaacon pleeeeeese. Actually, further to that. Steak is delicious, but if I boiled a steak and drank the water, that wouldn’t be very delicious. Maybe the only way to get the taste of actual bacon in a drink is to add artificial bacon flavouring. I wonder if it was cooked or raw before addition? Now I just want some bacon.

A deep darl ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, light faint chocolate with light peated notes. In mouth, a light s$oked beer with light peaty bacon notes, powdery chocolate, decent.

On tap at the Only Cafe. Pours a dark brown with modest tan head. Aroma is roasty chocolate and caramel with some underlying what I’d say is saltiness more than anything. Flavour is salty/smoky but doesn’t overpower the roasty chocolate/caramel. Not bad but felt a little gimmicky.

Enjoyed with the GF after work, when a snowstorm seemed to paralyze the streets of Ottawa. Time for a brew and some food. Poured a dark brown colour with a small head and minimal lace. Roasted malt nose with fruity hints, molasses and chocolate. Refreshingly wet, but with enough body, and all-around smooth. The fruitiness takes a bit over the burnt malt in the taste. Not really feeling the bacon anywhere though. More like a mild coffee and milk finish. Still, a good stout with fruity notes.

On tap at Winterbrewed - served much too cold but with outside temperatures of -19C what can you do - still happy to get to try this beer. Black with a brown head. Oats, some baker’s chocolate, hint of meatiness, bit of lactose. Moderate carbonation and body, the smoke and bacon really develop on the palate without overwhelming. Quite tasty.
