2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank from a bottle. The beer has a smoky flavour but it is also a bit watery. With a bit stronger flavours the beer would be great!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bouteille:Deep ruby amber coloured with a quite stable off-white head, a bit unclear; fruity - astonishingly citrussy - nose with faint traces of caramel and of more roasted than smoked malt, dried berries detectable, too;mild bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied; mild smoky-malty traces in the fruity finish. This "oak" is pretty unharmonic…

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL bottle BB 12 06 14
Pours a moderately deep ruby body, with a creamy beige head.
Subtle aroma of toasted nut, cocoa-y roasted grains, with a touch of earthy smoke character, but not much.
Medium body, restrained creamy, almost cask-like carbonation & mouthfeel.
More toasted nutty malt character on the body, seems to be the dominant flavour, with some charred meaty roast character, earthy hop leafiness, and faintest of drying Whiskey-like smokiness. Moderate bitterness, dry finish.
Not a bad drop really, but the whole smoked & oak aged thing is what drew me in, and it’s just a bit underdone - could easily be overlooked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Soft but also a little watery taste of roasted malt, coffee and licorice. Unusually fresh taste to be a "smoked".

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark, reddish, looks like Coke, big head too. Smoky, caramel. Medium sweetness. Rather fizzy, semi-light palate. A Mediocre beer that is hard to place as a porter or a smoked beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 4.5% abv) Clear, mahogany colour with a beige and short foamy head. Roast-malty aroma with a whiff of peat, accompanied by notes of liquorice, chocolate and bread crust. Moderately sweet and roasty bitter flavour, light bodied with a modest carbonation. Roasty malt character with notes of chocolate, marzipan and mocha, also delicately sourish accent; roasty and very shy oaky notes during the finish with an aftertaste of chocolate and mocha. Likeable, lacks a bit body. 13.V.14

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malt has a bit of light trash aroma - I guess that’s supposed to be the smoked? Pours dark brown with ok head and lacing. Light roast, watery texture. More like a black lager or Schwarzbier. Cask at Churchkey.
