A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.
Almost black with a thin beige head. Lots of chocolate malt in the nose with a lick of smoke. Excellent black smoky stuff all round in the mouth. The lick of bonfire at the edges in the finish is really excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a blackish color, with red and brown notes and a frothy mocha colored head. Aroma is mostly of smoke, with notes of smoked meat, bacon, campfire, roasted malts and coffee. The flavor is of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, smoke in the way of smoked meat, bacon, smoked sausage, campfire and I also get a faint trace of hops. The body is medium with a smooth mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice smoked Porter.

On tap, shared with Yngwie and Gunnfryd @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Pours a deep ruby-hued near-black brown body with a small white top. Nose gives me smoked malts, wort, cereals and hints of chocolate. Taste veers more into tar, more worts, burnt sugar and hints of peat. An OK rauch, but nothing special.
