dark, almost black, similar to coffee. Form a durable layer of foam, creamier texture and color. It gives off an intense aroma of smoked, such as bacon or smoked cheese. After roasted malt notes something spicy and coffee are appreciated. It is such an intense and enveloping aroma, which is totally unmistakable. surprising and intoxicating taste. predominantly strong smoky flavor, and in the background, slightly sweet roasted grain to malt, which gives way to a long aftertaste slightly bitter hops tempered by the lingering aroma of smoky flavor is appreciated. It has achieved a near perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness.

500ml bottle at Josh, vintage 2004. Aroma is still smoked (but not as so agressive as a fresh version), some fruity notes. Quite sweet taste with the same notes. Not bad :-)

Dark brown with a medium white head. Beautiful smoky aroma of bacon and smoked cheese. Sweet and malty in the palate, with a strong roasted and smoked malty backbone. Low bitterness and medium carbonation. Fantastic.

WaddlingPlatypus (112) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
500ml at the Railway Station, Durham. Dark amber pour, with a pale yellow sea-froth head. Aroma of well-smoked bacon rind and bourbon. Flavours of age-old smoked bacon and acrid woodsmoke, with a faint note of old ale. Simple tastes, yet very flavoursome.
