2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Totalmente negra, espuma marrom, de média duração, lacing breve e uniforme. Aroma intenso de defumado, fumaça, fica até difícil identificar o malte torrado, me lembrou de estábulo de cavalos kkkkkk . Paladar impactante, no início o defumado vem em conjunto de um dulçor leve/médio, com posterior amargor. Corpo leve, carbonação flat, não transparece o teor alcoólico. Aftertaste lembra a sensação de salgado, aliado ao amargor torrado. Um bom exemplo de cerveja defumada, que balanceou o intenso sabor com o dulçor da porter, apesar de não der um estilo que eu aprecio.

Subtlety seems to be the intention here. The smokey, liquorice, chocolate tones are all here, as much in the aroma as the flavour but all very under-stated. I would have preferred a bit more smokiness. The texture is fantastic, thick and creamy with just the right touch of carbo. Overall very easy to drink which is surprising considering the "hype" on the label.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of a good amount of.meaty smoke, charred malt, some.dark fruit
. Flavor was one of the most smoke laden beers I’ve ever had, but not acrid or overwhelming at all.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This black-brown beer pours with a huge foamy tan head. It has a smoked beech wood and oaky flavour, vanilla and chocolate followed by a slight tart red fruit and gentle smoked finish. Excellent!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bitter roasted malts with a noticable but well moderated smokiness. Quite smooth and rich. Strong bitter, slightly burnt roast flavour with a background sweetness that balances well.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Inky black pour with a thin, rocky, yet fast-dissipating dark khaki head. The nose is full of smokey tones as the name would imply, perhaps also a bit of tobacco if I’m not mistaken, and a whiff of greasy sausage. Full and delightful flavor of smokey sausage meat, a little roasted dark cocoa lending a bit of sweetness, then finishing with more sausage notes. Very pleasantly smokey without being charred. Amazing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt, smoke, meat but all well balanced. Flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, again some smoke, warm alchool, sweet in the begining and slighty bitter in the end. A well balanced beer
