3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, birthday present from Lakshmi. Poured brown black, high carbonation, rapidly vanishing head. I couldn’t really get into this beer, it was smoky, a little bit roasted, ok finish. A little boozy actually. Nice enough but I couldn’t get excited.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovelly porter with a subtle smoke aroma and flavour, with a wonderful developing flavour that lingers. I think this would be great with cured meat or kippers and eggs. Wonderful.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a black body with a small off-white head. Nose is licorice, leather, dark fruits, toffee and hints of burnt rubber, smoke and chocolate. Taste is coffee, ashes, chocolate, mild licorice, caramel and hints of smoke, burnt rubber and leather. Light body, soft to medium carbonation. A bit strange, and not quite as smoky as to make an impression. I’ve had better from Beavertown. Bad bottle, perhaps?

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark coffee color with a strong light brown head from a can. Nose has roasty coffee aromas and a complex smoky character. Taste follows suit with a rather nondescript palate. A nice, if not superb smoked porter.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ RBBSG III. Pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is smoke, BBQ, fire lighters. The taste is surprisingly much less smoke (but there’s still some evident), roasted malt,, hint of caramel with a dry finish. Loved the taste much more than the aroma.
