Poured from the can to a 16oz glass. Thick foamy head slowed my pour. Color is a nice caramel clear. Aroma is very much like a but brown, nutty, caramel, not really anything resembling bacon though. Flavour has a nice English /west coast bitterness to it. The flavour also gives some hint to the brown sugar, but again I’m reaching if I say I taste bacon. Anyways not a bad brown ale.

I liked it alot. Found it at Breastfest ’13. Really nice flavor, blanced and palate had some crispy smoky bacon aftertastes. Looked like a nut brown, so thats right. Overall really nice, different and well done. Ratman197 (15212) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2013
16 oz can poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of carmel, brown sugar, light spice and a hint of bacon. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, brown sugar and light spice with a smooth lingering brown sugar finish. patricks110 (2553) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
The appearance is actually awesome with a purely opaque black body and a thin finger of off beige head and a few lacing splotches. The aroma is a very light smoky scent with a mild moderate roasted malt and earthy espresso. The flavour lacks gusto and has a mild roast but lacks smoky bacon and has a nutty maltiness. This is still 1000 times better than Rogue Voodoo Bacon but its not a great brew. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On draught at na organic ale fest - pours clear dark brown. Nose of smoke and caramel. Taste of smoke, malt, and slight hop finish.

473ml can. Pours dark brown, clear, small beige head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is slightly nutty with notes of caramel and chocolate. Taste has dark chocolate, caramel and faint smoke and light toastiness. A little bitterness at the end and some dark chocolate notes. Average carbonation, medium body. Does not deliver on bacon flavour, despite that it still is a drinkable brown ale. But it would have been better with bacon. JDBaker11058 (2336) - Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Appearance: medium amber brown with a short, light tan head. Aroma: sweet, with a bit of caramel, brown sugar, toast, and maybe a hint of smoke. Taste: sweet and toasty, with cereal grains, floral honey, brown sugar, maybe a bit of wood. Finish: clean, and slightly dry, with a bit of toasty nut character and again, just a hint of smoke. Notes: Not any bacon that I could detect. I expected at least a viable dose of smokiness halfway to a rauchbier or something. Nevertheless, the base brown ale was pretty decent, and this must be acknowledged.

Can sampled @ Edmonton Craft Beerfest. Medium tea-coloured amber. Aroma is strangely a little winery, with faint green apple and light smoke. Caramel, light perfume, light acrid smoke. Watery, Not even a HINT of bacon. You know how to piss a guy off? Tell him "Bacon’s coming!", then don’t give him bacon. Right now, I’m that pissed-off guy. gramity (1678) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Cloudy orange with tiny white head. Nose is sweet hay/grass and light malt. Taste is sweet malt and tart funk behind. There’s no bacon! Somebody bring home the bacon! riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Nose of toasted and roasted malts, subtle salty smokey notes, a little herbal hop notes. Pours muddy brown, thin off white head and lace. Flavors of nutty roasted and toasted malts, fairly standard brown, a little hay dusty notes, very soft salty and smokey bacon notes. Decent carbonation, a little sharpness in the finish. Not unpleasant.
