Gachupines (1106) - USA - JUN 5, 2011
Deep black with a thick tan head. Aroma is strong smoke, reminiscent of a barbecue pit. Really reminds me of sitting outside by the smoker at my favorite BBQ joint. Flavor is huge smoke, almost overwhelming until it turns slightly sweet at the end. I can see why they called this Beer Geek Bacon (my bottle said Rauch Geek Breakfast), the flavor reminds me a little of really smoky bacon that has been cooked a little longer than necessary. But what would be a burnt flavor for bacon works to this beer’s favor. My only complaint is that the body is a little thin, but the huge flavor largely makes up for it. Hard to pair with food, this seems like something to drink after dinner, even smoked meat could be overwhelmed by it. Overall, excellent beer and quite unique, one of the better and stronger flavored smoked beers I’ve had. While not something I would pick up regularly, it’s definitely something worth experiencing.

Pyrmir (4353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2015
330 ml bottle at SBWF15. Black with dark tan head. Aroma is very roasty, smoked, burnt and woody with some chocolate and coffee. Taste is dry, burnt, roasted, smoked, some meats, bitter chocolate and more coffee. Dry smokey coffee finish. Not my cup of tea

330 ml bottle. (Uba ja Humal) Tallinn, Estonia.
Dark brown color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, smoke, saltiness and some bacony notes in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, licorice, coffee, mild bitterness, smoke and some salty notes. Wow! Very rich. Liquid breakfast.

574deadzone (1253) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Black pour with a decent mocha head. Prominent smoky nose reminiscent of bacon or a smoked ham along with some toasted notes, some roast, maybe some dark chocolate. Somewhat sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, somewhat oily, rich with smoke that lingers and dries out the palate. A cool brew, definitely smoky.

zacgillbanks (3430) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer pours with a dark brown thin head of foam. It has an extremely roasted and smoky flavour, oak and smoked beechwood notes followed by chocolate, liquorice and smoky bacon on the bitter, iodine, dry finish.

RhetoricalAns (634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
330 mL bottle. Black pour, thin tan head. The bacon is present in the aroma along with smoke and more traditional stout characters like chocolate roast and some vanilla. Taste is wood, earth, bacon,. Oatmeal gives a nice smooth texture, mildly heavy body.

Lambister (341) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2015
33cl bottle from Uba & Humal, Tallinn. Clear black color. Small brown head, short lasting one. Quite dry palate. Dark chocolate malt, smoky and baconish. Acid and smoky bacon to ash flavors in the finish. Nice, but not quite the quality I’m used to with M.

willisread (1091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a pitch black with a tiny brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of freshly ground espresso, cacao, smoked ham with some light sourness on the nose. Taste is more of the same with the smokiness increasing as it warms up. Fairly light stout with some richness and the smoke is there, but isn’t so overwhelming.
