Great bitter finish but not so much of a bacon taste to me. Smokey but no swine varanid99 (1250) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours dark brown with a huge, overly carbonated fizzy head. Smells of burnt toffee, a little metallic. Taste is slightly smoky, burnt sugar, little bitterness but no bacon. Not bad, but not spectacular either joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
On draft at the SF beer week opening celebration. It pours a clear orange/brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is dark fruit with some lighter toasty malts. The flavor is plums, toast and caramel. No smoke or bacon at all. Gimmicky, but nothing wrong with it as a standard brown ale. TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Can from PD. Clear amber pour with a short yellowish head with good retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is light citrus hops and medium-roast malt. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Dark toast, almonds, tea, bread crust. and tobacco. No bacon to my palate. Finish is medium, dry, bitter and umami. A solid brown with a nice balance and aromas, but nothing remarkable. Let it warm up! DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013

From a 16 oz can. Wow! Monstrously big tan head on this bugger. Color is dark brown. Nose is sweet. Taste? It tastes of malt, hops and I don’t know what, but I can’t say it tastes of bacon. Pleasant, but one is quite enough. BeerFunGuy (875) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This brown ale starts off with a really good smoky taxing bite and finishes with a very subtle bacon flavor.

Sparkling amber,huge beige head.Small intense bead.Neutral nose.Smoky,tinny & effervescent.Medium hop finish Better than expected Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Mostly clear dark copper, big rocky off white head settles leaving definitive stepped lacing. Aroma of burnt malts. Smokey malty salty taste, some sourness and singed caramel. Sweetens a bit as it warms. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Dry malty finish, no bacon.

16 oz can. Pours brown with a huge yellow head. Aromas of malts, dark fruit, and maybe a hint of smoke. Flavors of malts and salty nuts, and again maybe a hint of smoke. Other than the salt and smoke I couldn’t pull bacon. OK for a Nut Brown.
