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.

minutemat (1975) - Ford, 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.

47574xeCD (395) - God’s Country, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
330ml bottle at home. Pours a deep dark brown with a red tinge. Beige frothy head with slight lacing on the glass. Aroma of blackberry and a smoke tinge. Taste hints of fruit, chocolate and a distinct smokey after taste with hoppy notes. Does what it says on the tin. Smoked Porter. Good.

niquillis (1290) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours black brown with a tan head. Cracking hoppy porter, no smoke really. Cracking ale though.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Keg - I mostly got this because it was described as ’very smokey!’. It was not, but it was still fairly nice - really dark red with a rocky light brown frothy head. Good lacing and good retention. Aroma is lightly smokey, full of chocolate and with some hints of berries. Taste of roast malt, grassy hop and fruit followed by cocoa, smoke and light bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation.

wimpyjoe (4928) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Keg @ 57 Thomas Streeet (Marble), Manchester. Almost black with a thin creamy off-white head. Initially lightly smoked but eventually lingers long in its aftertaste. Very much a porter in style with a full body and very good roasted malt aroma and taste that edges close to stout territory.

Hanoi (507) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Nose is smoke, slight licorice, little hazel nut, touch of cola. Enticing. Taste is gentle smoke leading to wood, touch of cola, and a bitter hop note in the finish. Mouthfeel is suitable. A nice, lightly smoked, porter.
