This is one of the best smoked porters! Poured at about cellar temperature, with a colossal, super frothy, foamy, billowy, tan head that lasts and lasts plus good lacing. Color is a clear orange brown with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is smoke, malt, leather, cocoa. Flavor’s like nose, smoke is not out of proportion, fairly dry, bitter and carbonic tang balance nice with smoke. Body and carbonation - excellent. Finish is like flavor, longish, a little boozy, and good for one or two bottles. bmeup (679) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2011
This one a beauty. Lots of smoke, oak, vanilla and rasins. Taste is similar with some spice in there. Just a little light in body if to be picky. Try with pork crackle. This is a great Porter from 8 Wired peyto567 (43) - London, - JUN 16, 2015
simply the best smoked porter I’ve had. opened it for a bunch of elderly bitter drinkers and they were blown away, the same would apply for a bunch of young trend chasers. how many beers can you say that about? meaty, malty and hoppy yet oh so balanced.
