COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pdubyah (372) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2014
Goodness, apart from a 50/50 pour (beer to head) on my first attempt - this looks great dark black and a mocha coffee head that is thick and persistent. Then the lovely bitterness and the amazing smoked over note, with the sweet fruits and this is divine! Rich and just fantastic.
