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 couldn’t pull bacon. OK for a Nut Brown.

On tap at Bøker & Børst, Stavanger. Pours clear dark brown, small creamy beige head.Aroma is sweet malty with a whiff of flower, more specific rose. Taste is sweet, bordering cloying, fat and sugary mouthfeel,almost no traces of bacon or smoke, mediocre beer.

16 ounce can. Pours a mostly clear dark red brown color with a small white head. A nice smooth coffee and chocolate toast nose. The flavor is berries, toast, light smoke, fruity hops. Very flavorful and smooth. Nice. I love me some hoppy brown ales, and pork is a bonus.

Can. Pours a mostly clear very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has hints of roasting and toasting, and a bit of caramel underneath. Taste is toasty and has just a hint of bacon, though I wouldn’t have guessed based on flavor alone. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours two and half fingers of tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is mild: toasted malt and lemon.
The taste is fairly lemon hoppy, sharp bitter, slightly metallic and just a little nutty.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
An okay brown ale.

Very slight bacon aspect that you probably wouldn’t recognize as such unless it said so on the can. that said, this was a pleasant brown ale, robust in flavor and smooth. Enjoyed, just not as bacon-y as i hoped :)"

Keg in the North Bar, Leeds. Deep brown with a cream head. Disappointingly there’s very little in the way of bacon notes. Tasty non the less. Toasty with caramel and coffee and an ashy finish.
