COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Feral smoked porter has a very gentle bitterness and combines the classic coffee and chocolate character of the Porter style with a subtle smoked hickory flavour derived from the use of peated distiller’s malt.

Maris (983) - Canberra, - JAN 30, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 30/1/2013 (ABV 4.9%, not 4.7%). Pours a very dark amber with a big head. Has a strong smell of smoky bacon. Flavour wise, there’s lots of chocolate malt, molasses, and smoked meats. The bitterness is medium and the carbonation relatively lively. All up, a very pleasant smoked beer. Quite surprised it isn’t rated more highly.

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.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2014
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.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Bottled. Near black, rich head. Mildly ashy nose. Dryish with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Asphalt, notes of metal and molasses. Mid bitter finish.

Dark brown with a lightly frothy head. Hints of malt and smoke but not enough to keep me interested.

Rosslew (199) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
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.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
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.

Supertrev (51) - CHINA - DEC 23, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
