111116. I am not sure why most of Blackman?s Brewery beers have male names but it seems to work. This can was purchased from Beer Cartel where I buy a lot of my beers from. Smoke and porter, 2 things that just seem to go together. The beer looks big and foreboding with a dense black colour and a creamy pillow of foam that sits there for a while. The aroma is all smoke, a cross between smoked meat and campfire smoke, that fills the nose. Smooth and velvety in the mouth and again there is that smoke, you just can?t hide from it. Full body and the flavour builds to a thick creamy mouthfeel and a strong smoke aftertaste. All round this is a really good beer that at 6% ABV isn?t too over the top that you can?t have more than one.
