COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Imperial, Smoked Rye Porter evolved from the recipe book of JK; our Head Brewer. Mashed with malt smoked over a scottish peat burning fire, this beer has a lovely smokey, phenolic and slightly spicy character. Reminiscent of bonfires and Islay whisky.
Almost all gone, get it while you can and drink it whilst the smokey character is still prominent.

Bottle @ home, from De Molen. Lovely smokey, peaty, flavourful porter. So many things going on, but very well balanced. Dry smoke prevails, can't fault it. Lovely.

Bottle at home, 5th October 2012 tasty beer, licorice and smoke on the aroma, perfect palate, loads of smoke in the taste, smooth and fairly interesting.

Present for Christmas. Ugly dead flat pour, smells great, like islay whiskey, tastes the same, delicious beer.

Cask @ Borefts. Best name ever. Aroma is big smoke, some iodine, ash, red fruits. Flavour is thick smoke, ash, liquorice and some spice. Very nice.

At first it had the Frazzles smell going on but then the peat came through. Tastes like a porter with Islay whisky. Two favourites in one, works for me. Bring the noise.

Pours black, no head. Oily film. Aroma is wood smoke and salty smoked ham, and medicinal. Warming, and very long aftertaste.
