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.

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.
