Itís 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.

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

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.

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!

From a 16 oz can. Wow! Monstrously big tan head on this bugger. Color is dark brown. Nose is sweet. Taste? It tastes of malt, hops and I donít know what, but I canít say it tastes of bacon. Pleasant, but one is quite enough.

This brown ale starts off with a really good smoky taxing bite and finishes with a very subtle bacon flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1880) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Mostly clear dark copper, big rocky off white head settles leaving definitive stepped lacing. Aroma of burnt malts. Smokey malty salty taste, some sourness and singed caramel. Sweetens a bit as it warms. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Dry malty finish, no bacon. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

16 oz can. Pours brown with a huge yellow head. Aromas of malts, dark fruit, and maybe a hint of smoke. Flavors of malts and salty nuts, and again maybe a hint of smoke. Other than the salt and smoke I couldnít pull bacon. OK for a Nut Brown.

Scopey (11954) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Can at BrewDog Aberdeen. It pours deep brown, with a massive yellow-white head. The nose is smoked streaky bacon, toast, treacle, caramel, roasted malt and earth. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toast, wood, saltiness, burnt caramel, subtle bacon and light spice, with a very dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty salty actually. Okish Brown ale.
