jackl (7710) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle split w/ a friend. The pour’s deep brown with a slight tan head. The aroma’s ash, leather, some fruit by the foot, charcoal, woody pacific hops. The taste is inky bitterness, roasted malts, a bit of resin and lemon peel. Hints of forest fire. Medium body, aggressive, full flavors. Overall, a very solid effort!

Bottle at William IV. Dark brown/black colour, gold creamy head. Aroma is subtle smoky, bit creamy, some vanilla, milk chocolate, really nice. Taste is more creamy, very nice, fudge almost. Touch of spice but subtle. Nice sweetness. Haven’t had a beer like this. Very smooth. Really nice.

sheep (93) - FINLAND - JAN 8, 2013
330ml bottle, best before date is blurred, 01/04/20-something. Pours pitch black with a lasting sand-colored head. The nose is quite hop-forward. Fruity and piney hops, light caramel and some spicy rye. Taste follows with resinous, piney hops on the forefront. Some roasty malt in the background. Slightest hint of smoke in the bitter finish. Palate is sparkly and a bit light with medium carbonation. A little all over the place but still enjoyable.

Theydon_Bois (18966) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle at William IV (Magic Rock takeover) 10/12/12. Mid black, mahooosive frothy tan head. Nose is roast malt, light chocolate, touch of minerals, rye evident. Taste follows, roast malt backbone, dark sugars, touch of hops and pine, subtle smokiness, light soap. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation - a bit overcooked in this department for my liking, roast finish. Decent.

johndoughty (5382) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Black with a medium head.Bitter and quite sharp with a powerful body. A tad too bitter for my palate but still very drinkable.

Pudding (251) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2012
330ml bottle Cotteridge Wines B30. A pleasant drink. I’d find it hard to distinguish this smoked rye porter from an imperial stout in a blind tasting.

Leighton (20826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear black-brown with a thick, lasting beige cream - looks outstanding. Aroma holds some dirty pine and sturdy roasted malts. Medium sweet flavor with strong roasted malts, dark cocoa, dirt, burnt sugar, piney bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Some resinous pine bitterness on the finish, baking cocoa, very subtle dark malt tang, some scorched earth. Very rich and nicely rounded.

Opaque black - brown beer, big tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild dark malts, mellow smoke and a touch of the good rye spice. Nice citric hops holding everything together, pine in there as well. Semi dry finish. Nice beer. Like the combo of rye, smoke and hops.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 13, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thick light tan head. Aroma of coffee, smoked malt, caramel, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with bitter, black malt, tangy rye and dark chocolate notes. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter. Great!
