Maris (1308) - 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.

Bottle (330ml). Opaque dark brown, lasting tan film head. Malty palate, light hop bitterness. Pleasant hickory smoked notes at the very end of the palate and also on the nose. Quite light and sessionable for a Porter. Enjoyable.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 30, 2015
bottle from dan murphys in newcastle. dark brown with a shortlived head; surprisingly flat all round - light leathery smoke character but barely lingers, hint of musk; quick, modest bitterness, hints of cocoa; solid but really could use a lot more rauchmalz

ladnewton (1726) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Cask at Keg & Brew, Sydney on 15th September 2015. Sepia brown with off-white ring-and-film. Roasty malt aroma, continuing in the liquid stage to be joined by sweet caramel and smoked meat flavours. A subtle sour touch. Roasty finish with sweet, fruity echoes around the mouth before a subtle bitterness begins to emerge. Medium-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.

Rumspringers (7) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2015 does not count
Bottle poured into a glass. Thin tan head on a fairly flat dark porter base. A smoky nose with aromas of bacon bits that I found strangely pleasing. Rich malty notes with a hint of coffee ground bitterness an an astringent aftertaste that although not particularly pleasant, had me coming back for more. A really interesting beer worth a try, but not really something you could drink more than a couple of.

ANZUShophunter (240) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2015
From bottle in porter glass. Pours dark brown with modest head but prominent smoked hickory and roasted malt on the nose. This carries through to the palate and the finish is a bit sweet. Enjoyable and unique but I couldn’t have too many.
