COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smoked Porter. This porter has been crafted using a blend of old and new, dark and light. Peat smoked malt, noble hops and dehusked roasted malt combine to give a complex, deep brown, smoky beer with a subtle fruity hop flavour.
Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

rauchbier (3775) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle conditioned, from Beer in a Bottle, Beverley. Deep red brown with a faint haze, thin but persistent off white head and low condition. Subdued aromas of chocolate initially in the nose, with a slight sweet smokiness emerging as it warms, in the mouth, as with the nose, chocolate to start, becoming fruity with some muted tart berry notes before a low smokiness becomes apparent but never really shouts. Some spicy peppery hop notes briefly emerge but as a whole the beer lacks cohesion, becoming just a jumble of flavours none of which are unpleasant but just dont all seem to be pulling in the same direction. Finish has a low sweet smoked character, with a background of roast barley bitterness and a touch of slightly sour berries.

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Peat smoke, earth, roasty aroma with chocolatey notes. Sweetish strawberry roasty taste with cow dung notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish strawberry and earth aftertaste with dusty toasted rice notes. Nice, but strange. Why so little smoke? Strawberry? Anyway, somehow it works. (0.5l bottle, from odd bins, Edinburgh.)
