3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 30/1/2013 (ABV 4.9%, not 4.7%). Pours a very dark amber with a big head. Has a strong smell of smoky bacon. Flavour wise, there’s lots of chocolate malt, molasses, and smoked meats. The bitterness is medium and the carbonation relatively lively. All up, a very pleasant smoked beer. Quite surprised it isn’t rated more highly.
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Overall a damn tasty porter. No it is nothing fancy but it easily drinkable with just the right amount of smoke flavour coming through. phenom5 (26) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2017
Pours a nice head, with thick dark body. Lovely dark malts (think chocolate, liquorice and rusty nails) and a dose of smoked goodness. Clean dry finish. Nice! ngunity (179) - - SEP 2, 2017
From bottle. Pours with minimal head and poor retention. Smells of roast, coffee, and perhaps caramel. Tastes a balanced roasty porter with a smooth mouth feel. Hint of coffee and chocolate. Nothing remarkable but good. No sign of smoke chenko (14) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2017
Aroma - Mainly smoke with some citrus, apple and a hint of chocolate and burnt coffee.
Appearance - Pours black with think tan head that dissipates quickly.
Taste - Light initial smokiness, citrus, lemon but no tartness or sourness. After taste is a smooth smokiness that lingers in the mouth.
Mouthfeel - Medium to full body, low carb and has a think feel to it with goes well with the smokiness.
Overall - Could do with more smoke but a good beer on a cold winter day. JuanFernandes88 (72) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017
Dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of coffee, woody smoke and a touch of bacon. Very light on the palate. Dry finish

330ml bottle. Consumed from the bottle, so I can’t comment on the pour. Smoky and sweet chocolatey notes make up the aroma. Mild herbal hops up front, leading through smoke into milk chocolate in the mid-palate. The finish has an odd combination of smoky and sweet flavours. Like a lot of Feral’s beers, I found this a bit underwhelming. CurlyJoe (312) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2017
Quite dark but not too thick. Big woody smoke aroma. Lots of that to taste as well. Some chocolatey malts as well. Much lighter on the palate than I thought it would be. Not knock your socks off smoky, but enough there to keep me happy. Tezminator (298) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2016
Lightly smoked aroma with toasted malts. Faint coffee and dark chocolate flavour with moderate smokiness. Nice bitter finish. Drinkable. Probably very good with food. E_leap (13) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2016
the aroma of roasted malt ,and oatmeal, slight smoke aroma, light dark colour of a proper porter, but the let down is the poor texture due to low ABV, taste wise is malty, and tobacco smoke, nice carbonation but I think this beer is a let down compared to the other beers brewed by this brewery! allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle from Craigs, dregs run. Pours hazy dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of, smoked meat, bonfires, coffee. Taste is smoky, more coffee on the dry finish.
