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.

Bottle pours deep opaque brown black with big bottle gushing light tan head. Aromas of light smoke, wood, hints of chocolate coffee and acrid toasty nutty graininess. Light med highly carbonated body, lightly acrid, earthy hop character finishing light chocolate and nutty and earthy.

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 (11770) - 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.

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 (35) - 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

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2013
Poured an opaque black with cherry red tints around the edges and a one- to two-finger light tan frothy head that retains a while but then collapses to a thin film of bubbles across the top of the beer. Aroma pleasantly of smoked ham/bacon. Taste pleasantly of smoked ham, not over powering. Light to medium body but thin body for a porter. Finish short smooth soft and smoky but a trace metallic on the back palate. For me, a great beer.

M_Sack (275) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark brown with frothy tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate followed by a big whack of smoke from a smoldering fire. Immediate smoke flavour, leading into dark chocolate and a good hop bitterness. A long, sweetish lactose finish. Over carbonated which really lets the beer down, with an unpleasant fizzy mouthfeel. Big shame. Could have been a cracker.

Smokey malt hop aroma. Dark brown colour with great head and lacing. Bitter smokey malt flavour. Smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slowbeer ontap (13-Nov-13) Big smoked light bacon malt aroma. Black colour, nice head and sheet lacing. Big smoked bacon malt flavour. Light bitter roasted smoke malt finish and aftertaste.

Feral_Hop_Hog (17) - - NOV 8, 2013
First Feral beer I can't really recommend. Heavy taste, overbearing smokiness. Dark maple syrup colour. Bacon in a bottle. May be better from the tap? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
