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.

Tasted from the bottle, on 15/02/2013. Pours blackish brown with a tiny creamy head, which doesn't last for too long. Aroma is mild, smoke and wooden coal prevail, with an iodine hint in the end. Taste is a wonderful mix of roasted malts, all that peat/smoked/ashy/iodine stuff and, surprisingly, some citrusy american hops, lovely! Carbonation is low, body is full, alcohol is well hidden. Aftertaste is pure ash tone. Not a big fan of smoked beers, but that one is definitely worth to try. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2148) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Black body, light brown head. Aroma has disturbingly large amount of nail polish remover and thinner. Some smoke and roasted sugary malt too. Flavour has chocolate and some smokiness. Weird.

330 ml bottle. BBE 2015. The Gallows Bird XVI Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland. Black colour with small tan head. Manure, tar, smoke, malt and sweetness in aroma. Smoke, malt, mild alcohol and tar in flavour. Disappears too quickly. Oily and slick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
330ml bottle @ Gallows Bird, Espoo

Pours pitch black with a small head. Strange aroma of band-aid, horse shit, peat, farmyard and roasted malts. Taste is roasty and peaty with notes of wood, smoke and leather. Finish is smooth with some smokey notes, leather and wood. Okay, a bit unbalanced smoked and peated ale.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Gallows Bird, 20120125) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had smoke, roasted malts, sweetness and rye bread. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were smoke, roasted malts, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was smoky, sweet and bitter. Not the most pleasant smoked beer but the aftertaste was quite nice

At first it had the Frazzles smell going on but then the peat came through. Tastes like a porter with Islay whisky. Two favourites in one, works for me. Bring the noise.

Bottle. My first from this brewery. Brown with a small head. Dominating flavour is a smokey maltiness.Medium body and a good example of this style.

tommann (2861) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Aroma is a pound of smoked gammon that’s been aged in a pint of TCP. Taste isn’t as over the top, thick smoke and peat with mild plaster and TCP notes. Flat but full in the mouth.
