BeerViking (4209) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Cask at the Kings Tun JDW, orange-brown with a thin head, aromas of smoke, orange and toffee continue into the body, like smoked caramelised orange. Nice, but a bit confused.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 29 Jan 2013. Poured a clear amber, with a dense off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of smoked malt, redcurrants and straw. Peat in the flavour, with some slightly salty notes and biscuity malt underneath. Finish was cooked fruit, cured meat and grain. Probably not to everyone’s taste, but I liked it.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Cask @ Shrewsbury Beer Festival 2013. Has a good amount of smokey bonfires and ash, with a nice maltiness and a touch of hops. Better than the smokey Pressure Point brew I had recently but still not quite hitting the mark.

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2013
Cask at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. The smoke is slightly noticeable in the aroma alongside a biscuit maltiness. Light body, mild carbonation. It's definitely smoky, some toffee too and a hint of prunes. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2013
Cask @ Charles Lamb. The pour’s deep red with a small off-white head. The nose is smoked ham. General grains, rye bread. A bit of chocolate and caramel. Some red berry. The taste is more smoke. Light earthy hops. Fat malt body. Fine carbonation. Overall, not my thing.

Cask,gravity at Redditch Beer Festival,Worcestershire.Hazy light amber to gold pour with a minimal off white head.Smoked malt nose.Taste of medium sweet peat malt with a background of smoke.Well balanced with a dry finish making a different and tasty beer and one which i think will get a lot of differing views.
