blogmeabeer (22) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Named as smoked winter porter winter season 2014 in Sweden. A black liquid with a tan head. Slight roasted notes with dark chocolat and a hint of coffe. Highly bitter in taste with a roasted barley. Hints of chocolate and coffe. A long lasting aftertaste with slowly dimishing bitterness. Yes, nice, subtle enough smokiness to be appreciated. Lots of "dark" taste and still a high bitterness.

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.

olsvammel (3637) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
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.
