Bonfires + apples + toffee

Toffee apples by the bonfire...
We wanted to harness the evocative sense of the Somerset Autumn in a beer. With the last apple pressing days, dry leaves underfoot and the whiff of bonfires at every corner this beer sums it up, from sweet smoke, warming malt sweetness and hints of apple.
This is a beer to drink post barbecue, scarfs on, stomping against the chill and watching fireworks on a starry night sky.

barwa brunatna, piana skąpa. Aromat intensywny, ogniskowa wędzonka, karmel, toffi i owoce w tle. W smaku lekko słodkie, wedzonka, karme, krówki, jabłka. Finisz to niska goryczka.

BOTTLE. Red/Brown pour with small off white head.. The “bonfire” dominates aroma.. Smokey/woody body, apples upfront but just, it’s Smokey, lacks a real apple or toffee presence.. Glad I tried it despite the rating

mgajdaczewa (2285) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 9, 2017
W aromacie sporo dymnej wędzonki, bardzo czysty profil podbudowany karmelem i lekkimi nutami owocowymi. W smaku już nie tak bogato, lekko dymnie, wytrawnie, jest lekko owocowy posmak i karmelowość. Troszeczkę zbyt oszczędne, gdyby dodatki były bardziej wyraziste to byłoby interesujące ufo.

Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2017
From a 330ml bottle on 3/10/2017. Pours a hazy amber with a small head. The nose is dominated by smoked malt. The flavour features smoked meat, with quite a bit of sweet apple, but I don't really get the toffee. The smoke and the apple complement each other quite nicely. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Flavoursome yet quite subtle at the same time. Enjoyable.

Towey1989 (3266) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear amber colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of smoke meat, some apple, slight orange peel, a touch of chocolate and subtle bready malts. Taste of caramel, toffee, some apple, red fruits, slight smoke, a hint of chocolate and subtle nuttiness. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A soft, bittersweet, smoked fruit bitterness in the finish. A proper rauchbier aroma but in the taste it mellows and a gentle sweetness of the toffee apple and red fruits smooths the palate with rich, sticky malts. Enjoyed this.

Derbeth (1057) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Bottle. Amber colour, minimal head. Aroma is initially heavy smoked. After a while smoked aroma becomes more subtle, but still dominant, plus toffee and dry cider. Slightly sour. Good.

The_Osprey (9148) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2017
May 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Many thanks to Fergus. As ’Wild Beer Smoke ’n’ Barrels - Autumn’, 6%. Dark orange – brown, translucent, foamy off-white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is smoked ham, chorizo, general smoke. Mostly smoked ham. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste follows with the smoked ham and chorizo vibe, some sodawater lightness. Pretty good stuff from this hit-and-miss brewery. (3.8)
