Cask handpull at The Grove Tavern, Tunbridge Wells. Very deep ruby almost black with a disappearing beige head. Smoke and dark fruit aroma, some sour dark cherry/blackberry type fruit. Unfortunately a woman with unbelievably strong perfume has decided to stand in front of me so I can’t smell anything apart from her. Hoping she will move. Blackberry and damson aroma is excellent. Perfect condition in mouth and served perfectly. This is one of the best British smoked beers I’ve had. Stunning. Smoke and juicy dark fruits with a bit of a hop sting on finish. Stunning beer. I had just had an Orval and for something to make me feel this good, has got to be good. Maybe just a bit too juicy/watery on the malts. But still a hell of a beer.

Dark brown, loose head. Very gentle smoke aroma, mellow. Smokiness also in the taste, and with a loverly full bready roast backing it up. Anna and I agree, the smoke is this is basically perfect. There are bigger ones, but they enter the realm of being big smokey beers, this remains wonderfully in the realm of mellow.
Cask at The Hope, Carshalton. It pours deep brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is smoke, smoked ham, Bisto gravy, and starch. The taste is roasted malt, touch of smoke, charcoal and caramel, with a very dry finish. Thin body and soft carbonation. Too thin and dry, tough to drink much of. imdownthepub (15131) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest ’12. Dark brown with white head. There is certainly a smoky, bonfire note to the aroma, this follows into the beer, dryish, some caramel and fruit. Pretty reasonable. Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 17th & 18th February 2012 Dark brown with a touch of reddy glint and a small white head of dancing bubbles atop. Smokier than I was expecting with the smokiness in both mouth and on the nose. Dry, malty and the hops also showing, enjoyable stuff.

Bottle conditioned. Labelled as Smoked Ale but I assume it’s the same brew. Very dark ruby brown with a beige foam. Aromas are molasses and liquorice with coffee and weetabix. A decent amount of smokiness for a UK brew with blackberries. Flavours are sweet rye bread with dark chocolate bitterness and gritty cocoa. Roast malts with pepper and winter fruit. Quite dry on the finish with more chocolate and smoky aspects on the finish. Good. Erzengel (9338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle 500ml as 1648 Smoked Ale. Rating from 2012.
Bernsteinfarben im Glas, leicht rauchiger Geruch, der zur typischen Ale-Note hinzu kommt. Das Bier selber ist malzig Ale-typisch, ganz leicht rauchig. Sehr süffig, da recht wenig Kohlensäure. Nachgeschmack ist leicht rauchig, süßlich und malzig mit leichter Bitternote. --> 10/12/9/10
