3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 Visual: Comes in an aluminum tall can like all their other brews. Pours cloudy brown with a lasting creamy head, lacing, and lots active streams.
Nose: caramel malts, brown sugar, but just a hint of smokiness. (2)-aromatic strength.
Attack: incoming acidic caramel malts, fizzy/creamy
Mid-palate: alcohol detection, (MAIN) roasted caramel malts, brown sugar
Finish: (6)-sourness, (2)-mild meaty saltiness, (5)-hoppy bitterness.
Summary: A decent drinkable brew but it doesnít have much bacon flavour that it advertises. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)
April 4, 2016 Tasting:
Visual: Pours muddy brown, 1cm super foamy stick head, very active singular micro streams.
Nose: bright sweet brown sugar toffee malt, caramel apple (lvl-6)-pungency
Mid-palate: toasted brown sugar malt, (lvl-6-sweetness), alcoholic toffee malt, tangy-light sour
Finish: subtle smoky exhale, residual sweet malts
Summary: Quite an enjoyable toasted malty brew with a hint of savory twist. Like my initial review, not a whole lot of distinct bacon flavour.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Itís a light brown on amber with a near solid sheet of fine light tan foam. Brilliant clarity. Smells of some urine, a little tallow and some sweet malts. Really unappealing nose. Flavor is grain, bitter, some bread, some biscuit and toasted malts with a hint of coffee. No real bacon flavor. Medium on thin for the style with moderate carb. Really nothing I can find particularly appealing about this beer, poor execution.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from the Nugget Market, Woodland. Brown pour of medium depth, a finger of creamy brown head. Nose of light roast and smoke, along with a noticeable amount of sweetness. Must be the buckwheat. Carries through to the taste... minus any real bacon taste. More sweet than expected... not bad, but I had different expectations.

16 ounce can received in a trade with bytemesis. This pours opaque amber brown and has a creamy one finger head that leaves a layer. The aroma is cocoa and, yes, bacon. The flavor is those plus earth and some citrus hops. Nuts, brown sugar, and light smoke. Some really rich malts are heavy. This has a lot of nice stuff going on but not enough bacon. It falls a little short of hopes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Deep copper, thin sudsy tannish head, little lacing.   Seems like soft smoked malts on the nose.
Almost seems like some mesquite, or that charred wood one would use for smoking meats.   Moderate biscuitiness on
the tongue, sweet, not sticky but I could see where too much of this might wear on someone.   Faint smokiness.
Got more on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does feel a little like cough syrup on the backside.
Not all that hoppy, sweet, biscuity, with very faint smoke/mesquite.   Not as good or as interesting as I had
hoped... as I do love bacon!

Clear dark brown beer, massive cream coloured head. Unusual fruity nose - a little blackcurrant! Palate is light and airy with mild crispy carbonation. More fruits - slight Dr Pepper vibe, a little blackcurrant! Trace of bubblegum ester. Not much malt. Semi dry finish. Bacon? Maybe a trace of it in the aftertaste. Unusual and interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the can to a 16oz glass. Thick foamy head slowed my pour. Color is a nice caramel clear. Aroma is very much like a but brown, nutty, caramel, not really anything resembling bacon though. Flavour has a nice English /west coast bitterness to it. The flavour also gives some hint to the brown sugar, but again Iím reaching if I say I taste bacon. Anyways not a bad brown ale.
