Not exactly what you've described, but fat washing some bourbon and adding the smoked bourbon to a strong/robust porter could work. See: http://www.smallscreennetwork.com/vi...r_fat_washing/

Yeah... I'm really not to keen on the idea of using actual meat by product or spirits into this batch. It's definitely a way to go, but I really want to stick with the combo of straight beer and syrup.

I've used toriani syrups a few times in my beers with good results. I did a lemon syrup in the secondary of a amber ale and turned out a pretty good beer. One bottle was plenty to give good flavor. A porter may hide a bit more of the flavors than the amber ale did though. I wouldn't worry about taking out malt extract to make up for the extra sugar. Worse case scenario, you're beer is a bit more alcoholic.

If you're interested in adding a bacon-like flavor to a beer you should look up Listermann Brewing Company here in Cincinnati and ask them how they accomplish that flavor in their beer. I think its called "Friar Bacon Smoked Bock." It has a very distinct bacon flavor and they get this by using a special type of wood chip in the fermenter, I can't remember which one it is at the moment, but if you send them an email I'm sure they'd be happy to tell you. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/3474/59656

Thanks for the link. I'll definitely look into it if this beer totally fails. I plan on starting it either this weekend or next. I figure I'll go ahead and brew the beer, let it sit in the primary for 2-3 weeks, add in the syrup, let it sit another week and then bottle and hope for the best. I'll return to this thread after it's finished and let you guys know how it turns out.

Prism Brewing (www.prismbeer.com) here in PA also do a "bacon" flavored stout, called Insana Stout.
They told me that they use a vegan bacon flavored extract, it has a very well balanced flavor to it, but I never inquired as to where they source it.
They might be another to contact for info.

Damn, cock-blocked... The website sent me an e-mail just now saying they're out of the syrup. Back to the drawing board...
