The aroma is dominated by peaty smoke. Texture is rich and silky. Generally smokey and bitter. There’s some caramelised malts too. Hops come through in the finish but are quickly replaced by a heavy smokey lingering aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in the brewery during the RBESG 2013 weekend. Poured a deep mahogany with a bubbly tan head. The aroma is hugely smokey and nothing else! The flavour is medium to strong bitter with loads of smoke, liqourice and roasted malt on the slightly watery palate. One of the very best smoked porters I’ve had.
