COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the farm way too long, ol McDanko began showing some worrisome tendencies. Following a solid session in the hot box smoking malt, he was overcome by a methane cloud emoted from the herd. Ya heard? Reaching for the hops, he goofed and grabbed porky by the e-i-e-i-oh and plopped her in the brew kettle slow and low that is the tempo. Knock knock whos them? Its McDankos inbred neighbor, Geri Reynolds, swinging by delivering his deliverance with some fat back hem and some fat back them. Stepping out past some Foxy brothers picking a banjo on the porch to sample his wares, McDanko, doubled over the chopping block and squealed like a pig wieii wieii proclaiming this to be the most bodacious bacon beer brewed this side of the Chattoog-a!

Can... Pours black with a large, frothy, khaki head that diminishes to a tiny, off-white collar. The aroma features apple wood-smoked malts and milk chocolate. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is a touch roasty, but mainly chocolaty, smoky and bittersweet more sweet than bitter. This is kind of odd, but also kind of good. Im not a big fan of the Sweetwater portfolio, but other than being a bit too sugary, this is solid. No money wasted.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2017
16oz can from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville. 3/5/2017 fresh can date. Black pour with brownish tan head. Aroma has sweet malts, meat smoke. Taste is of sweet malts, tangy smoke. Not too deep or thick. The smoke is solid and tasty but the rest of this is only ok. Finishes sweetly smoky. Sweetwater has better stuff. 13.7

JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2017
appearance: very dark brown, thick tan head, decent lighter lacing. aroma: smoke and char right up front, with some molasses and dark chocolate notes. taste: campfire, hint of meat smoke, dry dark chocolate, burnt brown bread, cold pressed coffee. finish: very dry on the finish, with lingering smoke, char, and dark chocolate. notes: Not bad. Decent palate. Creative idea. Tallboy can with art and description trying a bit too hard.

Darwenus (1067) - Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2017
This is better than I thought it would be. I tried it mostly out of curiosity, expecting a novelty beer. But its actually pretty good, even if it is odd. It pours very dark brown with a lot of foam. The aroma is a rich, smoky malt with some spicy notes, black pepper and a little bit of hoppy tingle. The flavor is very much a standard smoked porter up front, but on the swallow there definitely is a bacon, bar-b-que pork quality. A little sweet spice, some coffee, a hint of honey and salt, and big, smokiness on the finish.

tmoreau (4151) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2017
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter displaying a ruby highlighted, black/brown hue, with a nice layer of brownish tan froth, and web-like cling to the lacing. The nose was roasted, mocha notes, maltiness, some woodiness, slight hints of dark fruit & spice, and a comfortable, campfire scent. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, and a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste continued with similar notes, showed more "Rauch" expression with smoked sausage and some char, and presented bitterness that was moderately earthy & roasted. Alcohol showed a little warmth but was mostly hidden. Quite smooth and surprisingly balanced.

slowrunner77 (11461) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Can. Dark brown with a thin tan cap. Aroma of smoke, sweet meats and malt. A touch Cola like and bitter in the flavor. The smoke is aggressive, and the bacon is moderate. Pretty nice, with a prickly feel. Gotta be in the mood.

Smoke jumps out at you on the nose first thing. The bacon really porks you on the first taste. The roasty comes through with some coffee. If there was side of eggs this would be the primo breakfast beer. I bought the 4x16, had 2 the first day. I will save the other 2 for 2 seperate occasions. I really like this beer smokey porky roasty

I think this is one of those one time beers but not in a bad way. Its just too novel to drink all the time. I cant get over how smoky it is. And thank christ, theres a ton of bacon. Its like sweet sugary bacon and it plays perfectly with the roasty, smoky porter. I actually get more of the bacon in the taste than the aroma. Taste is much more sweet chocolate and smoke which balance each other nicely. Definitely happy I picked this up, its really delicious and all the flavors work so well and dont overpower. I love that I can pick up bacon, chocolate, smoke and subtle coffee separately. This could have been a weird mess but its not and Im geeking out hard on it.

Black pour, smoke and roasted malts dominate the nose. Bacon taste first followed by smoke. Bitter hop finish. Cant drink more than one in a night, but nice change of pace beer.
