2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy brownish-orange that pours an off-white head.
Fattiness and malt on the nose - the nose is like spent grain.
Mouthfeel is like drinking unfermented beer after you’ve taken your final gravity reading. Kinda full, but kinda funky.
Lots of gamey fresh malt on the palate. Sweet malts follow through and it is surprisingly mediocre. I don’t know what to make of this beer, but I am glad I tried it. You don’t really get much actual bacon, but certainly taste and feel a fleshy-ness to the whole beer that must come from the bacon.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Nedre Foss Gaard. This is a near clear really deep ruby colored one, not too much of a head on it really. It smells like a sweet bock that has been blended with sweet licorice, some cardboard and a little herbs. Not too bacony really. Mild gliding in the mouth and it’s somewhat soft on the carbonation. Prickling I’d say. Again, bockish in the taste. No real traces of the promised bacon here. Dark caramel sweetness and a little ripe plum. Not what the cake promised, but it’s definitely a drinkable, slightly dull one. 29.05.2015

On tap at Nedre Foss Gård, may 13th 2015. Copper colored body with a small head. Aroma of licorice, herbs and toast. Taste of burned caramel, earthy hops, medium bitterness. Bacon? You’ll have to search hard for traces of it, seems they forgot the "generous serving of bacon" in my glass.

Can at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, some dark fruity notes, hint of smoke, hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Certainly an enjoyable Brown Ale, but where’s the bacon I was promised?

From can. Pours a clear brown with a small, off white head. Aroma has caramel, malts, slight hops and maybe hints of bacon. Taste is more smoky with some toasted notes to it. Fairly sweet. Not much bacon i think, but still a simple and nice brown ale. Average to high carbonation and a semi-full body.
