On keg at Coach and Horses, Dronfield. Pours black with a tan head. A little thin but the smoked porter comes through well. Plenty of flavour, very good. Love to try on cask.

Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Under the name Smoked Winter Porter. Smoke on the nose, also some chocolate and semi-dark bread. Similar taste. I like the level of smoke in this beer, it’s not overpowering and just adds an extra dimension.

SaintMatty (5526) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
500ml Bottle - Dark brown in colour. Smoky and slightly roasted aroma with beech, ash and roasted malt. Roasted, chocolatey and moderately smoky taste with cocoa and liquorice. The smokiness is fairly subtle and is more evident in the aroma than the taste. Nicely balanced.

Bottle labelled as Thornbridge Smoked Winter Porter, this was kindly passed on by the Head Brewer (Rob?) when we visited over the Bakewell Folk Festival w/e Aug 2014 consumed at home Sunday 31st August 2014 Pours almost black with a beige head. Fruity, tangy with a decent but not overdone smokiness which whilst always apparent is actually well integrated. I liked this its a good beer. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.4
