theprof (761) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Cask. Pours dark body with thin bubbly white top. Lace diminishing. Aroma has barbecue smoke. Taste is caramel sweet malts with some soft fruits. The finish is subtle with a soft drift from sweet to sour. Interesting that the smoked effect is meaty.

tombyars (1662) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Purchased this in Aldis Saltcoats on the 17th September 2016. Poured into a chalice glass, black mahogany in colour with a cream white head. Malty aroma with a slight suggestion of peat smoke in the background. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives a moist maltloaf base with strong roast grain flavours leading to liquorice, black coffee, plain chocolate in the mouth. There is a slight hop prickle coming through in the short bitter aftertaste but does not detract from the malt body - unlike Purple Panther! Finish is malty with chewy treacle toffee, liquorice and smoked roast grains. Good depth of flavour and alcohol warmth found in this decent porter and a good purchase.

rauchbier (3852) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle conditioned, from Beer in a Bottle, Beverley. Deep red brown with a faint haze, thin but persistent off white head and low condition. Subdued aromas of chocolate initially in the nose, with a slight sweet smokiness emerging as it warms, in the mouth, as with the nose, chocolate to start, becoming fruity with some muted tart berry notes before a low smokiness becomes apparent but never really shouts. Some spicy peppery hop notes briefly emerge but as a whole the beer lacks cohesion, becoming just a jumble of flavours none of which are unpleasant but just dont all seem to be pulling in the same direction. Finish has a low sweet smoked character, with a background of roast barley bitterness and a touch of slightly sour berries.

larsga (7442) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Peat smoke, earth, roasty aroma with chocolatey notes. Sweetish strawberry roasty taste with cow dung notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish strawberry and earth aftertaste with dusty toasted rice notes. Nice, but strange. Why so little smoke? Strawberry? Anyway, somehow it works. (0.5l bottle, from odd bins, Edinburgh.)

planky84 (3058) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
