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.

(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 29 Aug 2015) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with smoke, dark bread and coffee. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, smoke, dark chocolate and a dry finish with a balanced roasty bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well made with a balanced smokiness. Nice one.

Cask at the the Hanging Bat. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of butterscotch, (diacetyl perhaps?), capsicum, green vegetables. Taste is light smoky, faint heat, more veg. Not great.

Cask at Bat. Dark brown with no head. Aroma is a nice big whack of buttery toffee. Taste of butter, toffee and chocolate. Flat with a lingering butter flavour. A disgrace

[cask, at the Great British Beer Festival 2015] - Redwillow Brewery Smokeless, 5.7%, Dark brown, slightly translucent, with a small, fluffy beige head. Roasted malts and dark cocoa on the nose, with a subtly oaky smoked note in the background. Medium body, still a bit watery. Mild carbonation. Sweet and sour fruit flavours, roasted malts and a mild smokey note at the start. Middle is sweetish, with roasted malts and smoke relegated to the background. More pronounced smokiness in the finish, but quickly canceled out by sweet malts and fruity, mellow aftertaste. Porter that makes good use of subtle smoke flavours.
