2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can pours an almost clear reddish brown with off-white head and a little lacing. Smells mostly of roasted malts. Aroma has a little smoky bacon, but some ordinary hops and malts. Body is medium with average carbonation. Tastes neither bitter nor sweet but slightly salty without a finish somewhere between cardboard and aluminum.. If you want a great bacon beer, try Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche Doppelbock instead of this.

16oz can 5/23/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove Singles Rack)-46° in Mug-Pours a dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, and a little bacon. Taste of the same with some hops. This medium bodied brew is not bad but with the name I was expecting a whole lotta bacon.

No bacon at all anywhere. Just a below average brown ale. Would have gotten a 3 but loses points for pretending it was flavored.

Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of solvent – feels like a bad doppelbock. Flavour is dry with berries and malt. Also hints of solvent and contamination with lactic acid. Where is the bacon?
