BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
500ml bottle from a Scottish Aldi during their beer festival: shared with a mate in Edinburgh on 24th Oct 2014, our last beer of a good crawl followed by some bottles at his gaff. Poured a deep, hazy brown, on top a thin tanned head. Mild smoky nose, with a dark chocolate and red fruit hint. Taste is the same, but in a different order of strength: chocolate then Peat smoke followed by the fruitiness. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated, a pleasant night cap.

Graham77 (281) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Black with an off white head. Aroma smoky and sweet. Full flavoured I think the peat smoke works better here than in other peat smoked beers I have tried. Very drinkable beer.

Bottle from Aldi. This is a very good porter. Caresses the palate with complex flavours. One of those beers that, the more you drink, the more you want. I noticed a wee bit of perfume in the mix too. More! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours hazy brown, thin tan head. Light smoke on the nose, but mostly chocolatey porter aromas. Taste is more of the same, chocolate then smoke at the back. Light fruity sweetness. Prickly carbonation. OK.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Bottled 21/12/13. A black beer with barely any head. A little peaty smoke in the aroma but it’s fairly well hidden. Comes alive in the mouth though. Great smoke and great dark roasty malts. A bit of veg and a bit of coffee. Really tasty.

Scopey (7389) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, peat, meat and umami notes. The taste is smooth, roasty, toast, light smoke, some medicinal notes, peat, coffee and chocolate with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting and pretty well executed. Nice.
