It’s a simple fact of life: bacon makes everything better. From eggs to ice cream, delicious bacon is turning up just about everywhere, Our uncommon contribution to this cured pork renaissance is the Bacon Brown Ale. This is a West Coast Nut Brown Ale brewed with toasted buckwheat and a generous serving of bacon-cured pork.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Poured into an English pint from a 16 ounce can canned on 2-22-2012.

A: Beautiful clear mahogany body with a towering tan head that forms a plateau as the sides disappear. This is how beer should look.

S: Very much lacking, very bland with mild nuts and very slight salty pork come through but this is lacking so very much. I’m very disappointed.

T: Like the aroma, I am extremely disappointed. Very slight cured pork flavor at the end with a slightly salty mid-taste, nuts take over the rest.

M: Medium bodied, tastes flat.

O: This is a highly disappointing beer, I was expecting more pork flavor but this, or more flavor in general. This beer looks better than it tastes.

Arôme de shampoing, cassonade et de fleurs, j’ai l’impression d’être au jardin botanique. En bouche c’est un mince marais de sucre sans intérêts.

I thought I was going to be enjoying this with breakfast. The aroma made me think so. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find a beer that  had more going for it. The flavor was that of a well made ale and the smokyness of bacon. Rest assured I liked what I tasted and I was not disappointed.

Pint on tap pours hazy brown with a good head. Aromas of slightly smoked malt some grassy piney notes and a bit of sweet malt. Flavor is bitter can only taste a very light presence of bacon.at the end kind of disappointing but the rest of the beer stands strong. Body is medium and finish is bitter leaving only a hint if pig

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Brown color, head is beige. Aroma’s of sweet malts, dark fruit, berries, maybe a hint of ash (might have been the smoker next to me who had just come in after a smoke). Flavor is lightly sweetish, fruity, with a starting bitterness. Medium body. Finishes eventually quite bitter, which saves this beer (not a fan on brown).

I believe this was on tap at O’brien’s, when I rated this on Aug. 2, 2011. Cloudy orange with tiny white head. Nose is sweet hay/grass and light malt. Taste is sweet malt and tart funk behind. There’s no bacon! Where’s the bacon, man???

Like I said before with Uncommon Brewery, EVERYTHING IS DONE ORGANICALLY - this Bacon Ale Comes only in a 30L Keg but its no ordinary Keg, no sir, its a Bag in a box, you throw it away once its empty! Thank you for thinking of our environment Uncommon!! Now to the beer, BACON!!!! YUM what a concept! I was the lucky winner to taste this at Twin Lights Tap House in Highlands NJ. From what I hear its very limited so get there while its still on tap!

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Draught @Ølbaren: Red brownish colored beer iwth an off white head and notes of dried dark fruits, rye bread, toasted malts and a light scent of smoke. Bacon? Not the faintest touch of bacon. Taste is sweet, light bitter, a little smokey.
