On tap at the albion hotel in Newcastle. Pretty solid beer, plently of smoked flavours. Lacks a Little taste, and flavour for my liking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very dark brown, almost cola looking. Little to no head, slight beige foam forming. Can definetly tell the smoked influence and upon tasting this is the initial taste on the palate. Hickory bacon aftertaste suits on the rainy afternoon.

Pours dark red to black, big smoke taste but a bit light on other flavours. Bitterness is well balanced with malty characters.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Poured a clear ruby-hued chestnut brown with a fizzy, mostly fading light tan head. Aromas of roasted nuts, bacon, lapsang souchong and some mid to dark fruit. Much the same to taste with some yeasty complexities on the back palate. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation, quite a firm-textured mouthfeel and then a lengthy finish of smoked malts, tea and salt-rubbed bacon.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a lightly frothy head.
Hints of malt and smoke but not enough to keep me interested.

Pours dark, little bubbles on sight but can taste a bit of fizz. Smokey, caramel in aroma. Tastes very much like bacon. Smooth on tongue. Not much lingering in finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Union Hotel. Medium brown. Very light smoke and gently roasty nose. Soft body...light smoke but it’s kind of ashy. Malts are sweet, little bit toffeeish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at SQUE Rotisserie & Alehouse, Singapore
Dark brown clor, almost black, with small head. There is some smoke and firewood aroma. The flavor confirms and underlines that the smoke profile of this beer is more a Schwarzwäld Schinken than the one from peat; the body is lean, almost weak; there is some roasted malt flavor.
Pleasant but not exciting.

My 1st porter. Smells and tastes like smoked ham. Nice and dark. Can't see a lot of bubbles but it is quite fizzy. A nice beer with a nice taste.
