A beautiful black stout with an enormous amount of smoked malt to produce a delicious flavour reminiscent of Lapsang Souchong tea. A staggeringly smooth and smokey sweetness radiates through the beer, evocative of being warmed around the campfire on an autumnal evening. The malt is smoked over open beech log fires giving a distinctive yet mellow smokey character. We love to drink this beer whilst eating slow-cooked pork or barbecue dishes, where the smokey flavours play alongside each other and the body of the beer matches nicely to the rich meat. Or, for something more unusual, try it alongside a creme brulee where it will be a winning partner to the burnt sugar.

Keg @ Brewdog Birmingham. Very subtle smoked elements with perhaps more of a sour character coming through the sweetness. Nice bitterness though but could do with a little more smokiness.

With grateful thanks to my off-sider Ned for supplying me with this. Appears murky brown-black colour with a mocha head and lots of sediment toward the bottom of the glass. Was extremely lively when opened. Smoky aroma as if it had been smoked with manuka. Also present were aromas of cloves, caramel, molasses, chocolate and dates. Lovely stuff. The aromas are subtle, not obtuse. Similar flavours and an elegant easy sipping stout. Lengthy finish means excellent bang for what isnít the smallest buck.

Cask handpump at The Grapes, Oxford, Sunday 15th December 2013 Pours dark brown with a reddy glint. Very nice stout with a roasty, smokey nice bitterness but a light velvety dark sugar sweetness also. Not sure I can particularly get the tea but donít know anything about this beer i.e. whether there is actually tea in it or not, anyhow this is bloody good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7
