32oz growler poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversay glass. This is part of the Unafraid of the Dark Series and is a Bacon Porter.

A - Pours dark brown, almost black...nearly totally opaque with very little light allowed thru. One finger of tan fluffy foam sits on top, falling to the surface and leaving only sparse lacing.

S - Not much intensity to the aroma...getting some smokiness, roasty malts, earthy and green hops, some charcoal.

T Smokey and burnt malts, not much that I would truly classify as bacon however. Burnt toast, charcoal, a bit fruity and estery.

M - Medium body and medium carbonation...

O - Overall decent. Wish there was more that I could more distinctly call bacony here. Lots of burnt and smokey malts, but missing some of the nuances to call it bacon. A litte more refinement to the flavor would go a long way here.
