I’ve been looking for this beer and was very happy to find it in bottles at a local store. Pours a nice deep dark brown, almost black color with darker tan head and some nice spotty lingering lacing. Smells of maple, whiskey, wood, a little coffee and chocolate. Tastes of maple, wood, sweeter whiskey, vanilla, caramel and malt. The coffee and chocolate flavors are definitely more muted and in the background and I don’t really taste any bacon, though there may be just a hint of some smokiness. Smooth, full, slightly creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. A nice sipper and the high ABV is fairly well hidden but there’s definitely some warming alcohol. An excellent beer!

Appearance - The beer was murky black with deep mocha colored head.

Smell - The sweetness of the maple and malts made its presence known in the nose with light chocolate.

Taste - At the front, sweet chocolate malts were accompanied by maple. The next later was the smoke of the sinful bacon. The rye was not overly hot, but created a nice undercurrent. The malts and smoked leaned more bitter in back.

Mouthfeel - For a stout, the beer seemed somewhat thin.

Overall - This is a decadently sinful beer that is worth seeking for its smoke and sweetness.

Released a couple weeks ago.

A: Pours very dark, dull brown with a cap of light tan head. Decent retention but minimal lacing.

S: Hefty amount of vanilla bean, a bit of roast, espresso, and chocolate. Very light savory bacon, syrup, and round grainy rye.

T: Medium roast coffee, moderate roastiness, milk chocolate, and a touch of sweet maple. Not getting any bacon.

M: Medium-full body, mildly creamy, with medium-light carbonation. Slight warming from the alcohol.

O: Not bad. Barrel treatment and adjuncts are pretty light, and the base isn’t exceptional enough to make this without more contribution from the adjuncts.
