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.

Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 16, 2015
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige frothy head. The aroma is so peculiar, definitely the smoke character could easily pass as some kind of tea. Taste is roasted malts and licorice. Bitterness and smoke on the palate, very balanced. Mouthfeel is medium, very good carbonation. So smooth and original.

Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. Practically black with a thin off-white head. Has light roasted malts with smoked aroma and flavour, although again this is quite light allowing a small sweetness to come through as well. Quite fizzy in the palate.
