COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled; Regular.

A surprisingly approachable smoked porter, velvet smooth with a robust malt backbone. This is infused with Chipotles to give even more smokiness and a subtle hint of heat, a real winter warmer.

Benzai (9758) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Dark brown color with a slight deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light, small light brown head. Aroma is malts, some roast, coffee quite strongly. Taste malts, some roast again and also some coffee, light pepper, ash, lightly smoke, caramel, the slightest hint of butter in the distance but it’s too distant to bother and you’ve really got to search for it. Quite good.
