2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ok beer, smokyness comes through nicely. Minimal head, foam is sticky though. Taste is sweet with a lingering sweet and bittery finish. Quite a lot of carbonation, too much in my opinion. Also misses complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle at Jopenkerk. So smoked porters are listed as porters, not as smoked anymore? Almost black colour, beige head. Aroma of soft campfire smoke, leather, earth, dark fruits, some roasted malts. Flavour is sweet, quite fruity, dark fruits, some red fruits, soft smoke, hint of leather and chocolate, soft bitter roast finish. Medium-bodied at best. Would have liked some more roast, but this was a tasty treat nonetheless.

A bit of smokiness, though not as much as I’d like. Some decent chocolate, some licorice, and a medium to weak body. Tried at the Burg Bierfeest with Nick in 2014.
