Rich, full bodied Porter with a subtle, sweet smoky aroma thanks to the famous smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. The malt driven character is balanced by a spicy dark fruit aroma from the Bullion and Willamette hops.

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 isnít bad at all.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Keg at the Northern Craft Beers Festival at the Hawkshead Brewery. Mahogany with a cream head. Mild roasty aroma. The taste has fruity roast malts, toast and a light bitterness before the smoke comes in. Chewy. Nice.

Hamirubi (569) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2016
33cl bottle (22 IV 2016), shared with Dez, Bartlebier and friends: Thanks! A pure black tanned porter with a reddish gloom. Slick looking, slightly oily textured dark brew with lots of smoke and a very subtle bacon nose - very slight, though! Very decent, clean porter with bitterish and malt features. Although there are no real added specials to this beer.

Ricca e corposa Porter con un sottile e dolce aroma affumicato grazie al famoso malto affumicato di Bamberg, Germania. Il malto Ť bilanciato da un piccante aroma di frutta scura e dai luppoli Bullion e Willamette. Runaway Brewing realizza birra moderne con la produzione in piccoli lotti nel suo birrificio al centro di Manchester. La birra Ť non filtrata, cruda e condizionata in barili e bottiglie per mantenere il piý possibile il sapore. Ha davvero una facile beva.

mR_fr0g (9533) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle at my desk in work. Pour opaque black with a nice lasting mid tan head. Aroma is damp wood, earthy smoke, like a rained on campfire, some bitter roast. Slifght medicine phenol on the nose, but nothing unpleasant. Palate is frothy, airy, highish carbonation. Flavour is composed of bitter dark choc, bitter roast, light medicinal smoke, hint of tcp. light cream. Big flavour forward beer. The bitterness is slightly too much for me.
