3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers Of Europe, King’s Lynn
Dark brown color, almost black, with moderate compact head. The aroma of smoke has also components of burnt paper, wood. The mouthfeel is very dry, and quite weak; there is some dark caramel flavor, with some dark chocolate, with light touch of smoke and burnt wood, ending with a metallic impression that is not very pleasant; short final.
It has very little of a Porter. Simple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 05/08/12. A dark brown coloured beer with areddy hue and a whitish head. Gushed on opening and poured lively. Has signs of infection amongst the smoky roasty notes. Vegetable bitterness. Decent flavours despite the flaws. Wouldn’t personally categorise this as a smoked beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Pours dark ruby with small beige head that creates a firm lacing. Aroma has peat, roasty malt, oak, licorice and a hint of coffee. Quite delicate and complex aroma that opens up slowly. A demanding beer. Taste has piney hops, smoke, roasty malt, caramel and dark fruits. Nicely bitter, medium to thick body. Lively carbonation. A bit too lively actually. Smoke is nicely undertone, not dominating the aroma or taste. A slightly smoky subtle finish. A wonderful beer but could be even better.
