COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Smoked Porter is a robust London style porter with a deep chocolate/ruby color and the subtle accent of hardwood smoked malt. This distinctive beer is brewed using no less than seven different varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in a complex and full bodied beer characterized by hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel and beechwood smoke. The big malty finish to this beer is balanced by a solid hop bitterness and the refined English aroma and flavor of premium Goldings finishing hops.

LCBO purchase, as a single. Slightly hazy dark brown colour sporting little head but leaves a good lace. I find the aroma quite prune juice like but as it opens up i get roast and toast and a hint of chocolate. On the palate it is smoother than expected and again those boozy dark fruit flavours creep up. Nice beer.

Spab (2522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with dark orange edges and small light tan head. Aroma is moderately roasty with chocolate, nuts and some smoky notes. Flavour is roasted chocolatey malt with nuts, a little coffee and a smokiness that sneaks up on you. Some dryness in the finish. Nice.

Quite a solid smoked porter. Definitely a smokey, london-fog experience when you drink this one. Nice body. Caramelly, roasty, coffee stout flavors. Smokey flavors throughout as well.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
London Porter Bottled 11/06/13. Poured 2/16/14. $2.29 single. Appearance: Pours a clear ruby/black/brown color. Not too thick looking. Thin couple bubbles worth of head. No lacing. Quite true to the style in terms of color. (4/5) Smell: A LOT of roast/smoke/ash. Almost a wood aromatic as well from all of that. Coffee and chocolate are there but not heavily. Smells good, but almost a bit overbearing with the smoke/ash. (3.75/5) Taste/feel: About a medium mouthfeel with a mellow, light carbonation. Very pleasant, accurate feel here. The taste is a fairly heavy amount of smoke/ash with a wheelbarrow of roasty qualities. Bittersweet chocolate at the end. Not much depth of flavor, but what is there is flavorful. I could see the smokiness of this brew turning off many, but it’s balanced nicely with some sweetness. Very easy drinking at 7%. A really quite nice beer from Arcadia. (4/5, 4.25/5) One of the better beers I’ve had from Arcadia. Not my favorite porter in terms of flavor, but this one is a good example of a porter over a stout, I think. I’d definitely have it again, as it can be difficult to find a tasty porter on the shelf. 4/5
