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. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2015
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. oRos (1674) - sacramento, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Can shared by Bruce pours Brown with white head. Taste is roasted malts. With some sweetness Fatehunter (2615) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is mild: toasted malt and lemon.
The taste is fairly lemon hoppy, sharp bitter, slightly metallic and just a little nutty.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
An okay brown ale. slowrunner77 (12824) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Very slight bacon aspect that you probably wouldn’t recognize as such unless it said so on the can. that said, this was a pleasant brown ale, robust in flavor and smooth. Enjoyed, just not as bacon-y as i hoped :)"

Can. Darker brown pour. Aroma of caramel malts. Flavor is a little bacon and some maple syrup like sweetness, along with a little bitter character. spacecube (1768) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Keg, pours dark brown, aroma has caramel malt balancing with mild smoke, not much bacon. Texture is creamy, carbonation is average. gegwilson (3800) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Keg in the North Bar, Leeds. Deep brown with a cream head. Disappointingly there’s very little in the way of bacon notes. Tasty non the less. Toasty with caramel and coffee and an ashy finish. Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Can at Craig’s. Pours brown, nose is light toffee, smoky, taste is a little smoky, dry, toffee, it needs more bacon. allmyvinyl (11020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas are light smoke and light brown malt. Taste brings more sweetness than smoke. Medium to light body, clean finish, little thin in the mouthfeel. OK.
