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.

Can brought back from California by a generous friend. Pours a true brown with lots of carbonation and a very very very light brown head that is massive. Loads of clumpy lacing. Nose is sweet light malt. Brown sugar. Tastes sweet, malty, bitter, alcohol. A touch of smoke.

Pours a hazy chestnut/ruby color with a huge tan head..very nice retention and lacing. Aroma has mild dark fruits, nuts, and bread. Flavor has very mild smoke but mostly like a fruit and nut bread with a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is slightly fruity and earthy/bitter. Wheres the bacon!?

On tap @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Subtle atrt and roasty aromas, some caramel ones. Pours dark copper, opaque and cloudy, with frothy tan head, vanishing, some lacing. Taste is sweet, dry aftertaste, some roasted flavours, very subtle ones. Enjoyable anyway.

brokensail (10918) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours a brown color with a khaki head. Only lightly smokey aroma, a bit salty, and some roasted malt. Toasted bread sweetness, toffee, nuts, and dark fruit. Flavor is a little fruitier and sweeter than expected. Mild smoke, almonds, toasted bread, and some roasted malt. Interesting, but not exactly what I was expecting.

Great bitter finish but not so much of a bacon taste to me. Smokey but no swine

varanid99 (507) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours dark brown with a huge, overly carbonated fizzy head. Smells of burnt toffee, a little metallic. Taste is slightly smoky, burnt sugar, little bitterness but no bacon. Not bad, but not spectacular either

joeneugs (3242) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
On draft at the SF beer week opening celebration. It pours a clear orange/brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is dark fruit with some lighter toasty malts. The flavor is plums, toast and caramel. No smoke or bacon at all. Gimmicky, but nothing wrong with it as a standard brown ale.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Can from PD. Clear amber pour with a short yellowish head with good retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is light citrus hops and medium-roast malt. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Dark toast, almonds, tea, bread crust. and tobacco. No bacon to my palate. Finish is medium, dry, bitter and umami. A solid brown with a nice balance and aromas, but nothing remarkable. Let it warm up!
