Smooth and mellow with a light smokey finish on each sip. Really enjoyed kicking back the end of the day raining outside and sipping on this porter. Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours a slightly cloudy brown with an off-white head. Big roast and smoke aroma, some peat. Great flavor, smokey with hints of bacon and brown sugar. Big roastiness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, plenty of lingering smoke. Excellent. Forcina (52) - Bellinzona, Rome, Brussels, SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2011
Ha un bel naso e una certa complessità gustativa, ma mi risulta inndigesta a lungo andare. Defreni (3295) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2011
Fad: Aftenens bedste øl. Sortbrun let gennemsigtig øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er kaffe, chokolade og sødlig som en porter. Det der virkeligt er lækkert er lejrbålet der kommer ind over. Heldigvis ikke noget bacon der havde ødelagt balancen. Smagen er igen fuld porter med et tvist af lejrbål. Fantastisk øl. Beer5000 (6734) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle @ Søgaards Bryghus. Dark brown, almost black body with a nice, creamy beige head. Delicate smoke aroma with roasted malt. Flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and hint of smoked sausages. Quite strong smoke flavor, still smooth and balanced, relatively sweet but in balance with the bitterness. Fine body and long smoked finish. A really nice smoked porter.

Bottle. BBF: 10.03.14 (March). Poulsen Pitch black with thick beige head. Heavy aroma of chocolate and coffee with a solid smokiness to add. Sweet flavour of chocolate along with coffee and roasted malts in the finishing bitterness. Also a little smoke left. Creamy palate and a very nice porter.

It’s black with a red hue and a creamy, lasting head. The aroma has notes of camp-fire, smoked bacon and other meat, roasted malt and licorice. The mouth-feel is fat. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of camp-fire with beech-wood, smoking meat, smoked meat, licorice, coffee, and in the long and slightly dry finish I find notes of coffee in the end – it’s a lovely beer!

A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Almost black with a thin beige head. Lots of chocolate malt in the nose with a lick of smoke. Excellent black smoky stuff all round in the mouth. The lick of bonfire at the edges in the finish is really excellent.
from erzbierschof.ch - clear dark ruby-brown beer with a little beige foam left; correct lacework; roasted coffeish aroma with well-integrated notes of smoke and bacon; a decent carbonation and malt backbone; slightly dry and moderately bitter; long aftertaste of ashes and bacon
