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.

Cask @ Borefts. Best name ever. Aroma is big smoke, some iodine, ash, red fruits. Flavour is thick smoke, ash, liquorice and some spice. Very 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.

Pours black, no head. Oily film. Aroma is wood smoke and salty smoked ham, and medicinal. Warming, and very long aftertaste.

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

Bottle at home, thanks James! Dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Big salty, meaty, slightly sweaty smoke and roast on the nose, just a hint of soft roast barley too. Slightly sweet mocha/cocoa front, quickly matched with intense, slightly medicinal peat flavours. Soft creamy body, lightly bittersweet finish. Really well balanced.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Beer Ritz, tasted with Dan. Pours a pitch black, very little head. Aroma is peaty smoke, roasted malts, milky vanilla and a little bit of dark fruits. Taste is big smoke up front, with a nicely subtle peaty, whiskyish note. Roasted malts, mocha coffee and some dark fruitiness are there too. Medium body, average length finish. Not bad, but expected a bit more if Im honest.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Very deep ruby with a loose beige foam receding to a halo. Top smoked sausage, Chorizo, paprika, chipotle, smoked ham, background bramble aroma. Smoked ham, cheese, beechwood taste with soapy hop, blackcurrant and a bitter roasted finish. Pure Bamberg. And then some.

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
