COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Imperial, Smoked Rye Porter evolved from the recipe book of JK; our Head Brewer. Mashed with malt smoked over a scottish peat burning fire, this beer has a lovely smokey, phenolic and slightly spicy character. Reminiscent of bonfires and Islay whisky.
Almost all gone, get it while you can and drink it whilst the smokey character is still prominent.

Scopey (9372) - Croydon, Greater London, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle at Euston Tap. It pours opaque very dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is big on the smoke, roasted malt, some caramel, tire, burnt plastic and umami aspect. The taste is roasted malt, toast, smoke, earth, tar, cacao, charcoal, tar, meatiness and some medicinal notes, with a dry, tarry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good balance and flavour.

Jur (452) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle @ home, from De Molen. Lovely smokey, peaty, flavourful porter. So many things going on, but very well balanced. Dry smoke prevails, can't fault it. Lovely.

sarauckelman (276) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Dark, thick black. No head. Aroma is smoky and medicinal. Sour and smoky flavor, but the smoke tastes fake; it’s not very pleasant. It’s not a porly-crafted beer, it’s just not to my taste at all.

Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Utobeer, London. It pours a dirt amber/brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is smoke, burnt wood, balsamic vinegar, funk, band-aid, citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light salty, light bitter and light acidic. Notes of ashes, wood, bacon, band-aid, funk, hay, lemon peel. Finishes dry, quite sour and lightly salty. Overall, really interesting and packed with flavour.

The smoke, the peat, the flavor, the palate, it’s all great. What might the best is the low alcohol content considering the flavors. Only 7% for something that could have been a lot more than that. Great beer
