4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Capone’s. Pours thick and oily and very deep black colored, with a thick brown head. Nose is choc malt, cacao, roasty, notes of anise. Tastes dense on the palate, with big roasty choc malt, cacao, walnut, and backup hop flavors. This is a great stout.
Tap at Barcade Philly.skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Appearance: Black body with a short tan head.
Aroma: Mellow, prominent cocoa.
Taste: Cocoa is prominent but mellow. Mild beer, light smoke.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Enjoyable beer, no bacon noticed, but chocolate comes through. Not cloying.
Pours almost pitch black with brown hues, with a tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, caramel, sweet malts, molasses, and some smoked meat notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel an sightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and unique stout. voyageurmike (502) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
roasty, smoky bitter chocolate, minimal tan head, inky black.medium bitterness, full body, creamy, long bitter finish. The bacon does little for the taste of this beer, looking forward to eventual end of this trendiness. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014

On tap at Capone’s. Dark brown color with an off white head. Roast, smoked meats (more on the smoky side), and chocolate. NikkTwist (3307) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque pour, but up to a bright light the edge shows some orange brown. Foamy brown head that left lots of lace. Burnt toast. Unsweetened chocolate. Charcoal. Cigarettes. Black coffee. Tootsie Rolls. Bit of a sweet smoky element but does not taste like a Rauchbier. Feels heavier than the medium high ABV suggests. Medium body. Seems more juicy than most stouts with this flavor profile. jrodooo5 (1706) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Aroma is full of chocolate & a slight hint of bacon. Pours an opaque black that leaves lacing. Taste is primarily chocolate & finshes slightly bitter. Not bad at all tho I’m not getting much bacon flavor. philaglassfull (1) - - DEC 15, 2011 does not count
Dark, malty, sweet stout. Light smokiness and medium chocolate flavors. Little bit of bitterness at the end. A solid stout, though perhaps lacking in focus; kind of muddy flavor profile.
