tap at the brewery. doughed smoked maple. touch of smoked jerky. don’t really recognize bacon exactly. just a hint of old wet wood and vanilla. touch too sweet. tad flabby. looking like my least favorite of the 4 barrel varieties.

Growler served in Southern Tier tulip. Thanks to Gonzoillini for the share. A: Pours a semi dark brown color with lots of dark ruby highlights. A little tan head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring. Some splotches of lace. S:Very subtle smoke, some wood, with some light malts. Subtle sweetness on the back end. Not getting much of the barrel. T: More smokey than the nose. some pale malts with a little roast. Slightly sweet with some sweet barrel notes. M: Really drinkable. Light bodied with a medium carbonation. O: The barrel was extremely light in this situation, but it provided enough sweetness to cut some of the smoke. An interesting beer that I’d like to try again. Serving type: growler

Big thanks to Alex for the growler. Pours a clear deep amber brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a light smoke note with a bit of dark grains and a touch of maple. Flavor has a good amount of smoke with a bit of sweet maple and dark grains.

This was alright. Im not sure this tastes anything like bacon. Just kind of an odd meaty smoked beer. Its a bit watery as well. My least favorite.
