Nice article, but I gotta say... the glaring omission is any mention of how it really tastes. Yeah, we know how the finished product looked and all that, but I wanted some flavor impressions. Yeah, yeah, we know it tastes like bacon, but I want details.
But heck, who am I kidding? I'd eat it (or attempt to eat it) in a heartbeat, with a Schlenkerla Urbock to wash it down.
