We had this beer unfiltered at a beer festival. It was pretty good, but it left us wondering, "Does this have bacon it it?"

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery in Portsmouth, N.H. It pours reddish-mahogany with little head and slow moving carbonation. The aroma emphasizes the malty, sugary character with little in the way of hops on the nose. The body was on the thin side. It has a moderately sweet taste with a slight hop bite on the end. Good at the pub with lunch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer arrived a nice copper brown with just a slight haze topped with modest tan head. Aroma was of carmel with an interesting hint of what I felt to be pineapple. Taste was again nutty and carmelly but with an odd background that reminded me of bleu cheese. This wasn’t strong but enough to detract with each sip. Body was nice and full. OK beer but the off flavor bothered me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Cataqua brewpub in Portsmouth, NH. Copper pour, smallish head and some lacing. Aroma of wet cardboard. Flavor was smokey and butterscotchy with a funky lagerish bite. Not very good, I’m afraid.
