Bottle from Beerhawk. Tasty smoked porter with a bit of black IPA to it. Could perhaps be a little more smoky.

ABS (805) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
As Thornbridge Smoked Winter Porter. Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Very dark brown colour. Tan to brown head. Dark fruit and smoke nose. Roasted coffee. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and smoke flavour. Medium body and carbonation. Some sweetness. Bitter ending. A bit dry ending as well. Would’ve guessed this had a lot more ABV than 5.3 %. Feels almost like an Imperial Porter. A good one for sure!

Beersiveknown (4820) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle at home from brewery online shop
opaque peaty brown with pillowy tan head. Gentle smokey Oakwood nose, lively carbonation, full bodied, slightly minty, earthy, dry, weird mineral finish. Unfortunately the smoke dissipates far too quickly and not much else to carry flavourwise.

Holmen1 (4343) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Fra fat på Mi2 Cardinal aug-15: brunsvart med beige skum. Flott aroma og nydelig smak (selv med bruken av torvrøykt malt!), balansert. Kaffe, torvrøyk, plumpudding, korinter, deep fruityness. Alt dette også i ettersmaken.

Kita (1751) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear dark brown head with medium soapy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of smoke, caramel and chocolate. Taste starts light sweet grainy with roasted malt note, following is refreshing fruity and smoky, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. A bit too subtle to meet my high expectations...
