On tap at the Continental, where we all went for Saturday brunch during RBSG Philly. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Roast and light smoke, chocolate. Medium to thick body, roast, touches of smoke. Lingering smoke that develops nicely, very subtle and nicely balanced. Roast and gentle smoke, very nice. hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at Capone’s. Dark brown color with an off white head. Roast, smoked meats (more on the smoky side), and chocolate. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2013
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. egajdzis (6830) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Opaque black color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, burnt wood. Taste of roasted malts, some coffee, dark chocolate, and a smokey dry finish. If the smoke is coming from the bacon, then I guess that’d be impressive. dmac (6574) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Draft at Capone’s. Poured a dark brown body with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted grains, hint of smoke. Flavor of chocolate, bread, smoke. The carbonation on this one is rather lively and the body is just a hair on the thin side. No hint of bacon in this beer anywhere but if they sold this as a smoked chocolate stout that seems more accurate.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of caramel. Poured pitch black in color. Small, creamy, dense, brown head disappeared except for around the edges. Opaque. Not sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, malt, light lactose, light roasting, and a hint of caramel. No bacon flavor at all. Medium body. Thin, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Chocolate, malt, roasting, and coffee finish is very dry. alobar (3966) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Thick black color with a roasted malt, dark chocolate aroma with hints of smoke. Flavor of roasted malt and chocolate with a thin smoke finish. Bacon not noted, but a very nice beer nonetheless. NikkTwist (3406) - 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. adrian910ss (2604) - Doylestown, PA, USA - APR 11, 2011
On draft at Capones. Pours a deep brown chocolate color with a small light beige head. Aroma of chocolate, light smoke, malt and bacon. Taste of breakfast bacon, chocolate and malt. Interesting stuff. Leaves a smoky bacon aftertaste.
