Smells like liquid smoke. Tastes smokey but delightfully so. Black. No head. No lacing. Smoke rests on palate. Well balanced. This beer begs to be drank with a cigar or a meaty meal.

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.

Deep red brown with a brown tinged head. Woody smell with a hint of smoke. Big smokey edging on peaty flavour with an earthy bitter finish. Smooth & bacony - yummy! Rated by BrewTom

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 (110) - 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.
