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.

From the bottle this poured a medium brown colored body with a tall (too tall) rocky tan head. The aroma had a faint generic maltiness with something "off" that may or may not have been bacon. I was expecting more from the flavor. This was pretty much like a standard brewpub brown ale from years back that has a charred bitterness that (again) may or may not have been bacon. One’s enough for me.

Split a 16oz can with some friends. Poured a medium-dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Aroma was some roasted malt, sweet caramel character, maple and a touch of meaty smoke. Flavor was maple, some light candy, and smokey bacon character. I was hoping for a bit more bacon notes in this.

16 oz can. Pours dark brown. Thin white head. Scent of smoke and malts. Taste is nice and smoky. A little peppery. Not bad.

16oz can pours a slightly hazy brown color with a thin off white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of caramel, salt and toasted malt. Tasted the same. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with light carbonation. Pretty disappointed in this bland beer. More salt than bacon in the flavor. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Arayaga2 (2102) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Semi-opaque brown with little to no head. Aroma is basic brown, with very little smoke evident. Taste is brown with bitter phenolics, like cheap liquid smoke. Overall, not much smoke or anything else character, but it does have a worty aftertaste. $3/pint-can

exeter (501) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
No bacon really. Very malty, slight smoke, and slight slight salt. Slight hops. Way too thin. For a bacon beer, it should be thick and greasy and oily. Good coat on the tongue. Great brown ale, but no Bacon

Rating #966 - February 10th 2014 - First #BOTW at Coop (bit of a flub, only got two flats and they were gone the first day, so more like a #beerofthesunday - $4.29 CAD for a 500mL tall boy can. Pours a rich nut brown colour. Aroma is a little bit of smoke, mostly dark roasty notes, mild coffee, mild cocoa. Palate has more depth, get the rich smoky cured notes from the bacon and lots of pleasant sweetness, caramel, nuts, and a delicate bitterness. Awesome start to #BOTW.

luttonm (4489) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Tall can in Seattle. Dark ruddy brown, soft tan foam. Odd beer- this really doesn’t work. Sour malt aroma, no smoke. Creamy under developed body, sweet cream. Nothing crisp, dry or smoky. Not a good brown ale, nothing bacony either.

Theydon_Bois (16475) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Keg at the Euston Tap, 22/01/14. Dark chestnut brown with a big old beige head. Nose is toffee, subtle smoke, oatmeal tones, biscuit. Taste is fairly sweet throughout, toffee fudge, bubblegum, less of the smoke, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet closure. Ok offering, a little overly sweet and sugary, lacks depth for 6.8%, would struggle with more than a half of this.
