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.

maeib (8718) - 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 itís 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 (6865) - 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.

imdownthepub (10243) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Oak Tree, Balmaha, Stirlingshire, Scotland. Very dark brown, ruby hint with cream head. There is a slight peaty bonfire note on the nose but it doesnít follow through into the flavour. There is a malty fruitiness, some blackberry, strawberry, full palate. A pretty pleasant beer.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
bottle from Oddins London Bridge. Black beer lasting beige head. Malty aroma, but not particularly smokey. Eeek, like all the other Fallen beers I had this is still not a very good beer. Flavours are all over the place, there is some leather sofa flavour that is strange, the smokiness is limited and vague cheap smoked bacon. Itís not a pleasant beer to drink and like the other Fallen beers, I didnít want to finish it.
