Pours a deep brown in colour with a tan head. The smokiness of the peated malts is matched by a smooth taste of toffee, caramel and dark fruits.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Dark cola like beer with a smallish head. Aroma is sweet malts, smoke, dark bread, a bit fruity. No hops there really but bbe is just a month away. Taste is sweetish and a bit sour too, dark bready malts, hints of ash and smoke, plums? Good nevertheless. A big thin and a bit too quick finish. Good and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2015
500ml bottle, as Smoked Winter Porter, from Systembolaget Kiruna, via djoeye. Shared with Finn Arvid and Skinnyviking. Good looking with its golden neck, and two-finger thick, fawn-coloured head leaving crocheted lacing down the glass. Jet black body. Smoked malty nose added by brown malts. Mild smoked malty taste supported by oak and raisin followed by a dried fruity ending. A fine balanced beer, medium bodied. (Tromsø 17.01.2015).

guzgorog (525) - FRANCE - JAN 19, 2015
Noire avec des reflets rubis, fine mousse beige. Nez de malts grillés, café, fumée, bois. Attaque légèrement amère sur les résineux, laissant rapidement la place aux malts torréfiés, café, le côté fumé est très peu présent. Corps assez léger, aqueuse, longueur un peu faiblarde. Bonne, mais un peu déçu, le côté fumé est trop léger...

Beerheart65 (1132) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Deep dark, black in glass, short light brown head, just bit lacing. Strange weiner aroma firs but evolves to licorice and coffee as this warms bit, dark chocolate, bit ash, dry crisp feel, dry & bitter, quite roasted, medium body, long roasted finish, peaty, malty syrup, bit dark fruits. OK, balanced, tasty, nothing special but welldone, nice smoky flavor - not burned harsh.

NordicV (1518) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
Flaska såld som Smoked Winter Porter. Nästan svart öl med ljusbrunt skum. Doft med lätt rostade toner, hö och aningen rökighet.. Rökigheten något mer påtaglig i smaken. Viss metallisk bismak. Gräddig munkänsla.

Finn (5176) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Flaske 500ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket i Skibotn 25 Des 14. Svart med et middels høyt mokkafarget skum som varer en god stund. Tynn lacing. God aroma av røyk & sjokolade. Ikke påtrengende. Smaken er mest røyk men også sjokolade & lakris. Tørr ettersmak med hint av karamell.
