minutemat (2382) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, - AUG 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours black with beige head. Smoked sweaty gym shirt aroma, taste has a tempered smoke quality, some malty woodiness, smooth and drinkable with charred ash on the finish. For a new brewery this isn’t bad at all.

Holmen1 (3403) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2015
Flaske fra Holmens importkoffert, delt med Ovesen på tappekveld: nesten helt svart, med flott skum som varer. Diskret røykaroma med mørkbrent kaffesyrlighet. Mer røykmalt i smaken, ristet brød på grensen til brent, balansert av syrligheten, og med en tørr avslutning.

Fin (8257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Beermoth, Northern Quarter, Manchester, consumed at home B/H Monday 4th May 2015 Black or pretty damn close to Black with a Guinness like creamy large head. Soft and smooth with some cocoa but with a tanginess and a whilst roasty and malty it is not heavy. There is a smokiness throughout but it is a gentle light smoked beer backed with a pleasant hoppy bite. A lovely beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
