tombyars (1512) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Tasted this at the Glasgow Real Ale Festival in the Briggait on the 26th June 2015. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin buff head. Strong malty aroma with notes of woody peat smoke. Thin oily mouthfeel and no lacing. Dark malt complex gives a juicy maltloaf base with notes of treacle, dark chocolate, liquorice and a hint of black coffee. Short prickle present in the mild hopped aftertaste but fades very fast. Finish is smooth and malty with dry flavours of molasses, liquorice, plain chocolate and strong peat smoke. An enjoyable porter and slightly better in flavour balance compared to Redwillow Smokeless.

(Bottle.) Black beer with a thin beige head. Smell is typical of a smoked beer with that usually, odd almost bacon-y hint. Though in this case there’s a touch of fruit under there too. Flavour is mellower than I expected. Quite mild and malty initially, with the smokiness coming in gradually but lingering once it does so. There’s a slight spicy tang in there too to mix things up. Smoked beers aren’t always my cup of tea but this is very drinkable.

500ml bottle from Oddbin’s... Only £2. Dark brownish black pour with off white head. aroma is coffee, malts, and burnt toast. Smokiness comes through too. Lovely taste which isn’t overwhelmingly smoky. Dark chocolate, a little coffee, quite "earthy". very nice.

tomekboniek (363) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Butelka. Piwo miesiąc po terminie przydatności. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Bardzo wysoka, beżowa grubopęcherzykowa piana. Piwo bardzo ładnie prezentuje się. Dominuje aromat i smak wędzonki, ciemnych słodów oraz gorzkiej czekolady.Wędzonka jest przyjemna, nieprzesadzona. Goryczka niska, niezalegająca. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi lekka kwasowość. Piwo jest pełne, w miarę aksamitne, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Bardzo fajne piwo.
