C&C 750ml bottle, no label.
it was over a year old.

Thanks again Jim!

Pours a dark brown color with a small brown head. Mildly smokey in the aroma accompanied by the standard brown ale malt characteristics. A mouthwatering slugger, very easy to drink, the unique addition of the bacon, someway somehow, adds a pleasant savory and smoky addition to the quaff. Very enjoyable, i sure would love the chance to try this again with some BBQ ribs, pulled pork etc.

Okay, so I only had about 5oz of this stuff and shouldn't review it...but I think it's fairly unique.

Medium-dark brown pour at Denver Rare Beer Tasting II. Minimal head, a bit soapy.

Now, the aroma is delicious. Smokey, umami and bacon. A sweet malt backbone give the bacon a honey blaze to it. Solid.

Taste is very nice. Would go very well with any grilled or smoked meat, maybe some nice cheese. Flavors begin with a light caramel that leads to a bready middle. Then the bacon comes in. Since being washed over bacon fat I expected a bit more 'thickness' to it, but it's actually quite light...The smoke and bacon go well together and play off one another beautifully. Lean bacon, crisp and baked finish. Lovely.

Drinking it by itself may be a bit much. Clearly a food-pairing beer. Great job on this one.

the Brooklyn Beer Dinner @ Brasserie Beck. 10/27/2009

Okay, I listed this as a Brown Ale only because this is how it began its life, as Brooklyn Brown. This ale goes through a "fat washing" process with bacon fat from Benton's Country Smokehouse, and is then blended with a small amount of a barleywine that is made with malt smoked in the very same smokehouse. There may be more to the process but you get the point. On to the beer itself.

Dark brown with minimal head and lacing, pungent smokey, fleshy nose. Flavors of smoke are more subtle, with a meaty, and savory, umami like component underpinning the solid malty body. Full, dense mouthfeel, with a hint of smokey bitternes. Goes down better with food than without, but kudos! to Garrett Oliver nonetheless.
