Tastes like beef jerkey. The smoke is all there is for taste. It does not resemble a porter at all.

sonnycheeba (4251) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is subtle but well dome with layers of smoke, chocolate, roasted malts, pork, and faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is dry and malty with a touch of caramel sweetness and soft bitterness; smoke undertones present throughout and come thru at the end for a dry, woody finish. Medium body.

ogivlado (6359) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottled 355ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Nearly black coloured, small off-white head that went away fast, light roasty nose. Roasted malt, caramel, smoke and sugar with rather sweet finish. Far far away from smoked Bamberg beers.
