UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 Ummm....this is off the chain. Indescribably good. Cross between a ripping dark ale and laphroaig.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2018 One of my favourite beers of all time. Bottle from Bitter Virtue. Dark smoky beer with lots of taste. Have drunk this at the brewery tap and hope to do so again!

on tap at Red Nose Pub. The beer is nicely mixing aroma and taste of heavy smoked bacon, tar with malt, caramel, nuts, red fruits notes and light hop notes. Surprisingly easily drinkable and tasty.

Although I am not particularly a fan of smoked beers, this one I really liked. While you drink it, you feel the taste of barbecue smoke coming from the glass, followed by a pleasant sweetness and gentle texture of a quality beer. Bottle. Good one.

les Berthoms Rouen. Bière extra fumée! On croirait mettre le nez au dessus d'un feu de cheminée éteint . Bière très originale qui pourrait parfaitement accompagner charcuteries et fromages.

Pachnie przyjemną wędzonką, coś jakby dym z drewna jałowca. W smaku mało wyraziste, wodniste, kojarzy się trochę z słabo przyprawioną wędzoną szynką.

A wonderfully interesting beer, though not going on my essential list. It pours a clear, mid-dark brown colour, with not much head.The smell is rich and malty, oozing a powerful overtone of smoked ham. The smoked tone is very dominant in the taste, reminding me of smoked Bavarian or Austrian cheese--the ones with bits of ham in. This is very entertaining, but then my tastebuds began searching for the malty notes I associate with Bavarian brown beers, and they weren't much in evidence. So my opinion is that this is a wonderfully smoky beer--you're not going to be disappointed on the smoky front, as I have been with some supposedly British smoked beers--but that the smokiness dominates the taste so much as to inhibit the complexity of the beer. In short, for me the smoky flavour is admirably gung-ho, but at the expense of anything more layered. Definitely an experience, though--a fun beer, if not one I'd choose to drink often.
