VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a thick, creamy, resilient beige head. Aroma is salty, smoky, meaty and coffee. Flavor is coffee, roast, salty, meaty, mineral. Finish is slight mineral flavor, with hints of coffee bitterness. Lingering smoke and salt, with some bitterness. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Somewhat lacking in sweetness, it remains a solid stout.

czar (5565) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
pours unclear dark brown with a small light beige cap, some retention and lacing. burnt and smoky caramel, saltiness, peat rather than umami/bacon smokiness, resin, astrigent coffee berries, but also smoked red fruits, lots of leather, earth, wood, salt, iodine, chalk, some perfumey booze, vanilla traces. light carbonation, medium body - oily; dry and resinous-coffee finish. very good stuff.

Kauge (657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle from Koht. BB 24.02.2019. Pours dark brown, nearly black. Head’s beige with good retention and lacing. The nose... very unexpected! I imagined I’d sniff some straight up smoked pork but it’s really not that simple... More like deeply roasted pork, almost burnt yet still juicy, and covered in some sweet and piquant BBQ sauce (using chili, paprika and lime). Loads of roast. Smoky too. Tastes similar: very roasty, almost ashy, with coffee and good hoppy bitterness. Damn nice! Body medium. Near flat carbonation. Low on sweetness. More salty and bitter. The bitterness in the finish quickly turns roasty. Great stuff!

33cl bottle. Bbe ? /19. Pours black with a thin brown head. Aroma is very smoky, smoked meat, salty, with mocha notes. Flavor has smoke, meat, lovely coffee notes, mild tobacco notes. Dark chocolate notes lingering in the finish. Smooth, medium to full bodied. This is so good!

Fashawn (409) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Not my favourite style but i think that this one is very good, with smoked meet to load the aroma and invades the mouth with some bacon and earthy finish. A good one,i like it

No bottling information.
Glass: Carton teku.
Appearance: Thick black body with a short but dense brown head. The head dissipates to a soft coating with a thick ring.
Aroma: Reminds me of smoked bacon and coffee, no wonder they called this Bacon. The smoke is prominent, giving a prominent smoked meat aroma with a woody earthy presence.
Taste: Mellow intro with a campfire smoked meats finish that’s prominent and sticks on the palate for a bit. Coffee is subdued, might be an old bottle. Drinks pretty bland til the end, but good smokiness by the end, like smoked ribs.
Palate: A bit flat on the palate.
Overall: Decent, but likely old and it’s rather pricey for such a one dimensional drink.

heman (155) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Piwo jest czarne z brunatnymi prześwitami,piana bardzo ładna, intensywna, brązowa, drobno-pęcherzykowa. Aromat to bardzo przyjemne połączenie kawy z wędzonką, nienachalną kojarzącą się z szynką i dymiącym zdrowym drewnem. Zapachy te wzajemnie się przenikają. Po ogrzaniu robi się bardziej czekoladowo, pojawiają się subtelne nuty wanilii i wędzonej śliwki. Piwo jest pełne w smaku. Początek jest lekko słodki, mocno kawowy. Pojawia się gorzka czekolada i lekko kwaśne słody palone i popiół. Finisz to wyraźna i raczej mocna goryczka. Każdy łyk lekko skleja usta, a w przełyku pozostaje posmak kwaskowatej, mocnej kawy.

Werckmeister (812) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2015
bottle at home. nice black color, small coffee colored head. smells smoky, nice bacon smell, some malty sweetness, hard to make out much else because the bacon smell is quite dominant. full body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, roasty taste, very little smoky / bacon at first, some coffee, dry / light to medium roasty finish. bacon comes through very slowly but steady on the aftertaste. quite interesting. roasty bitterness is a bit aggressive. I like the bacon on the aftertaste, but the roasty / dry finish is too aggressive for me. Its interesting to give this a try, but I have a hard time now finishing the bottle.

mikkos (292) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Black beer with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet smokey, dark malts, coffee. Taste is quite same as the aroma, really dark and smokey. Some fruity hints and hops too. Quite thick and oily mouthfeel, finishes smooth and medium bitter. More hops please, not my favorite now. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
