UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 On tap at Craft Beer Co - Islington on 17th November 2012. Almost black with a cream coloured foam ring and spot lacing. Rich roast aroma with festive berries. Rich and intense roast malts without excess sweetness, mild smoke, berry fruits and coffee in-mouth. Smoky finish with citric tang and herbiness. Smooth, slightly leathery mouthfeel. Exquisite.

I love this beer. Reminds me of that first taste of Coconut Porter. That charred taste is just wonderful. The smokiness is so well balanced. Brains greatest smoked porter? Yes, I think so. Patersoi (165) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2015
Exquisite. Chocolate aromas followed by a mocha flavour that washes across the palate. Finally the smokey kick in the tail finishes things off. The can says it is the drink that made Britain great. Made in Norway....

Cervezón! una stout con un toque ahumado muy rico que está perfectamente equilibrado! otro acierto de los ingleses... Me encanta. DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Leathery, dark malt nose. Some subtle smokey tones. Nice tan head with slight lacing over very dark beer. Dense, smooth mouth feel with good carbonation. Roast malt flavour with a balanced herbal hop angle. Dry smokey biscuit finish. Enjoyment increased as the flavours seemed to mellow and blend in my mouth. Very nice

330ml can. Pours Jet black with a 2 finger tan colour head. Nose is of bitter chocolate, coffee, toasted malt with a light smoke lingering in the background. Has a rich mouth feel pushed down with a light carbonation. Fantastic Porter with the usual big flavours and a decent hop bitterness. It all comes together with just a whiff of smoke.
