Bottle shared by Leighton on the bus at RBWG. Another new HF beer and from the dude who now lives across the big pond! I will take it. The base beer for those early baltic porter treatments, I did not realize this beer existed ; so it makes sense that its a new beer as I can see here in the CD. Pours a muddy dark brown with a small yellow tan head, nice lacing as always with HF. Nose is dark chocolate, smoke is there but not overpowering, light roast, coffee. Flavor is similar, more easy drinking and BP-like than a smoke beer which is fine by me (not that i dont like the smoke! I do I do! )
