Bottle. Pours black with a one finger tan head. Smoked wood aroma with subtle notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is sweet and smokey with chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and vanilla with a medium to full bodied and had a semi dry finish.

Con questa la categora "affumicate" aggiunge una nuova stella nel mio personalissimo firmamento. Eccellente! Unisce ciò che cerco in una porter con ciò che mi piace dell’affumica. Con un filo di corpo in più sarebbe perfetta a mio avviso...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice rich and dessert like with a ton of chocolate and woody earthen notes with a ton of ashy smoked notes. The bottle nearly frigging exploded with a ton of beige foam. Deep burnt brown body and a quick settling beige head. Sweet mid palate with a big roasted malt backbone and light chocolate richness. Smoked notes are subtle at first, but linger on a bit on the finish.

500mL bottle. Poured cola brown with a colossal, quick-forming, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up detergent, buttery notes, and light oxidation paired with sweet smoked malt.. this didn’t smell right. The flavor found semi-sweet, roasted chocolate and smoked malts at the core, with tart smoky notes and a bit of dry oak around.. finished tangy and smoky, with residual graininess and a little liquid smoke. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. tangy as mentioned.. seemed like it had a touch of infection going on.

Pours black with an oily little head. Aroma is smoke, burnt toast and coffee. Taste is more of the same, big strong flavours of smoke and burnt toast domimate. Nice lacing and balancing bitterness. Medium body allows for easy drinking for the intense flavours.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a lasting off white head. Aroma is huge smoke with underlying new world hops. Nice smoke balance of the beechwood and manuka. Big warm beer and dense smoke with a excellent malt back. Possibly use a bit more body, does drink a little thin, classic NZ malt problem. Heavily weighted on he ’big smoke’ character, but really well done. The perfect bbq beer, and I bet outstanding with oysters!

Black pour with huge tan head. Great smoky malts aroma and flavor. Some chocolate also. Nice and smooth, easy drinking. Overall, not my favorite style or the best version of the style, but not totally useless.
