Bottled. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, smoke, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, peated smoke, and caramel as well as a light acidity from the roasted malt, leading to a dry bitter finish.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle thanks to some chaps on the station platform in manchester. Alround rating: Smoked malt is quite peaty aswell as smoked bacon, burnt black malt is also key. Its basically probably quite a good beer but i dont like the porter aspect.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Bottle @ The Fat Cat, Sheffield.
Pours completely black with a big, satying, frothy, beige head. Aroma has light tartness, some raisins, roasted malts, light blackberries and subdued smoke. Very high, burp-inducing carbonation, frothy and a bit weak mouthfeel. Very mild flavour, some smoke, light berries and softly roasted. Fine chocolate and roasted aftertaste. It gets better, as it settles and some carbonation comes out of it.
