Enjoyed from can while hanging out at the roof top at Fountainhead in Chicago, IL on my birthday. I didn’t take tasting notes for this one, but I remember being completely unimpressed. At one point I got a pure gulp of sodium, maybe my worst beer drinking experience so far. Not the worst beer ever, but not really too good and Rogue’s bacon beer was hands down much better than this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 3/9/2012. This brown ale pours a medium to dark brown color from a 16oz. can. Medium sized beige/tan head with decent retention. The aroma is malty, caramel, maple and sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet, with a touch of maple and perhaps some bacon. The hops are earthy and herbal. Decent carbonation. Touch of nuttiness. Touch of bacon at the finish. Not sure what I was expecting and not sure that this is it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

1 pint can. Pours a clear red/dark brown hue with a fluffy off white head. I get a sweet buckwheat aroma but not alot of bacon. Big buckwheat flavour in this beer and as it warms in the mouth i get that meaty (bacon) like flavour on the back of the tongue. Nice beer but not overly complex.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from IBS.
Served at 4 degC.
Aroma upon opening, slightly roasted malts & anise hint of smoke (as i read the label)
Pours with a medium head consistent med/large bubbles, which lingers through 2nd sip. Gradually fades to strong lacing around edges.
Also sharp but mellow bitterness.
Anise & bitterness mellows & roasty subtle sweetness shines due to excellent body & mouth feel. Smooth & subtle biscuit malts follow.
Hint of dill fronds compliments subtle sweetness.
As it warms hint of alcohol is noticeable.
Slight sweet smokiness.
Serious food pairing possibilites; bacon, smoked salmon, porcini mushroom, vegimite, parmesan & soy. To the kitchen!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color: a deep redish brown. Aroma: nuty with mild smoke notes. Overall & taste, a well balanced nut brown ale with a silly name, missing the bacon thing not realy a smokey beer that you would expect from the name but a good beer over all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weird name for this beer. It really is a mutt of a brew, not so much a brown ale and no bacon anywhere to be found.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pounder can from Blue Dog. Pours clear mahogany with big 3-finger tan head. Nose is vienna malt, earthy brown sugar, perhaps a bit of bacony nose, some hops, and mild smoky wafts. Tastes a bit sweet, with vienna malt, some brown sugar, rauchy notes, and a solid complexity. I don’t get much salty or bacony flavor here, but there is a palate complexity element that is unmistakeable. This one is interesting and very quaffable.
