3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark brown with a very thin beige head which dissipates extremely quickly. Aroma is strong coffee, BBQ sauce, smoke, toffee and caramel. Taste is smoked meat, cold coffee, caramel and a light bitterness. For a porter, is disappointingly thin bodied and seems watered down. Short to medium bitter finish.
Can, 0.33l. Pours almost black with thick creamy light brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit, dust and mild smoke. Taste starts with light to medium sweet rich roasted malt and umami note, follows by licorice and mild sour fruitiness, mouthfeel is smooth and mild spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Getting better and better with every sip... theprof (1012) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Keg. Aroma has caramel, roasty, coffee, nuts, bread, in no particular order. Pours black with tan top and broken lacing. Unable to detect clarity so lets assume smog. Taste is medium bitter with a sweet and oily finish. I’m not sure the industrial masses had anything as good as this. Hence Methodism. madnorwegian (235) - FRANCE - JUL 25, 2017

Jet black in colour, half finger head. Bitter with an odd bacon like taste in the background. I found to be like sprout flavour yogurt, i.e flavours that don’t work together. Poured 1/3 of a can down the drain. Rauchbier is far better. SgtMattBaker (22) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Black color, brownish head. Beautiful smoked, dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Similar in taste, nice balance. jooilakon (190) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Can 330 ml from OddBins, Notting Hill Gate. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, smoke and subtle caramel. Light brown head and black body. Taste of coffee, milk chocolate and smokey tones. Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017
Ahumada, madera, frutos secos y aromas de caramelo. Vierte oscuro con muy poco la cabeza blanca, desaparece hasta que sólo quede una capa persistente muy delgada, algunos cordones dispersa. De cuerpo medio, textura untuosa y suave para la carbonatación media. El gusto no es tan lleno de humo, más es asado, café y regaliz. De algún modo equilibrado y agradable. Not bad. beerelk (47) - AUSTRIA - JUN 10, 2017
From can, nice dark color, and aroma of decent smokiness - but not too much! That’s the part I liked, the taste was quite metallic and not enjoyable at all. Maybe it’s because it’s not the freshest one anymore, I’ll try again, but this time I did not really like it.
