Fine piwo with a nice touch of liquorice, malt and turf. Quite easy to drink with some hops in the company. Was not sure about "smoke" but it was ok at all.

Bottle from Ales by Mail. the beer has got a deep black-dark brown colour with an steady head and medium body. Aroma of peat, torf and malt. Taste of peat, roasted malt, torf, woods, leather, leaves, caramel and licorice. Earthy annd smokey finish. Dry, medium bitter, low carbonation. Although I don’t like smoke beers a lot, this is also for me quite drinkable and good.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Prince Albert, Ely. Dark brown with plentiful light brown head. Muted chocolate malt aroma. Lovely taste, a sweet smokiness with a savoury hint of salted liquorice. Hoppy bitter in the finish with a hint of sourness. Warming finish suggests a stronger ABV than a meagre 4.8%. A good beer and not like every other porter out there.
