Gachupines (1023) - 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.

Kauge (558) - 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!

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 (148) - 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 (519) - 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 (273) - 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

Cool_Bond (1845) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2015
Scent of coal, ash and smoked meat. The taste is heavenly good. The taste of chocolate, coffee, soy sauce, smoked meat, ash and coal. The beer is a little cute too so it is nevertheless easy to drink and not get too heavy. Quite so heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Wonderful beer that you can enjoy for a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
