Bottle. Deep mahogany colour, thick white head, looks great. Super smokey, hints of deep malt, smoke, smoked pork product. I always enjoy this but never really fancy another.

martpez (118) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Delicately smoked and pretty delcious. The smoke is not overpowering with bitter hops coming through. Wonderful scrumptious head that dissolves too quickly. A cracking beer with a lot of flavour for 5.1%

Aroma is like walking into a boat shed. Tar and smoke off course. Gets me in the mood for whisky. Sausage taste and nice cream. An exciting and surprising beer.

Brews n chews. Pours a darker brown. Big smokey meaty aromas. Taste is smokey with a nice sweetness in there too. Like liquid bacon.

Dark brown with wonderful reddish hints, soft and white big head, shows decent retention and low lacing. Aroma is strongly smoked (bacon, speck, slight ashes) among a subtle roastiness and some dark fruit notes. In the taste, smoke is less dominant in a perfect balance of sweetness (dark fruits, caramel), bitterness (roasted malts) and smokiness ((bacon, ashes). Leaves a nice mix of smoke and fruity sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium to light body with very low crispness. Splendid smooth but still slgihtly creamy, goes down so easy. Wonderful and highly satisfying.

pioter (132) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Piana obfita, piękna, kremowa. Kolor piwa brązowy. W aromacie przyjemna dawka dymu. Raczej średnie wysycenie i średnia pełnia. W smku raczej słaba goryczka i ponownie dym od drewna. Na pewno ciekawe marcowe, ale ogolnie to dość średnie
