3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating #966 - February 10th 2014 - First #BOTW at Coop (bit of a flub, only got two flats and they were gone the first day, so more like a #beerofthesunday - $4.29 CAD for a 500mL tall boy can. Pours a rich nut brown colour. Aroma is a little bit of smoke, mostly dark roasty notes, mild coffee, mild cocoa. Palate has more depth, get the rich smoky cured notes from the bacon and lots of pleasant sweetness, caramel, nuts, and a delicate bitterness. Awesome start to #BOTW.

Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Fruity earthy odd aroma.
Sweet fruity wild berry taste with smoky roasty notes. Full-bodied.
Mild, soft, slightly flat mouthfeel. Sweetish fruity herbal wild
berry aftertaste with perfumy candy notes. It’s really odd, but also
quite nice. (0.564l can, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

50cl can. I am a vegetarian, but also a ticker... ;-)
clear brown, smooth light brown head.
aroma is malts, faint mild hops and perhaps a slightly salty note.
flavor is malts, almost no hops, ends also malty, very typical brown ale flavor i’d say. The only thing slightly indicating bacon added is a glue like palate, like the fat on meat. I can usually detect meat in quite small doses, only the palate gives the beer away. schlenkerla tastes lots more like meat than this one, and schelnkerla is even vegetarian.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
