Pitch black pour with a medium sized tan head. Huge smoke/peated aroma, along with dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, burnt sugar and black licorice. Over medium bitter and slightly sweet. Medium body with soft fizzies. Holy smoke, Batman!!! Tasty brew, no beginners beer though. The peat can be off putting for the starting beer taster. fletchfighters (1623) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2017

In short: smoked porter.
Did I enjoy it: yes.
Pours black with nice light tan head. Moderate head retention, little lacing. Smokey nose, roasty, coffee. Medium body, average carbonation, slick texture. Taste is malt forward, roasty, smokey, licorice, overall sweet.
Dark brown colour, minimal creamy beige head; aroma of intensive smoked notes (smoked ham, mainly ), some dark chocolate and maybe dried plum or burnt plum jam; tastes like the result of an aberrated test of soaking a smoked ham into a strong black coffe for at least a week and then covering the result of it with hot dark chocolate - sounds weird but the result is really great Bov (13442) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2017
courtesy of Antonio Rey - black beer with a dark beige foam left; fairly smoke with notes of chocolate and brushwoods; peated; sweet malt backbone, full-bodied, some residual sweetness and a long smokey, chocolatey and a bit lactic finish

Spanish smoked porter, tasted from tap at Craft & Draft. Thick and creamy, pale yellowish beige, lacing head over a very dark bronze beer, almost black, but with translucent, hazy copper-red tinge. Aroma of smoked bacon, unsugared chocolate, cured meat, burnt toast, dry tea, butterscotch, dried plums, blueberries, ashes, burnt wood. Dried fig and dito plums in the mouth, old raisins, only very lightly sweetish, more umami (dried beef), sourish roasted barley undertone, soft carbo, nutty, smooth, bit resiny maltiness, lots of black toasted bread, pleasantly dry, roasted coffee grounds-bitter and spicy hop bitter finish with the smokiness (smoked bacon again, some charcoal) rising up retronasally; very dry overall. Well-made, tasty and cleverly balanced epigone of Alaskan Smoked Porter. ShivanDragon (4741) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2017
Zwart met beperkte kaki kraag. Aroma van gerookte mout, rubber en leer. Smaken van rookmout, veel wat.. zeer veel leer, chocolade, geroosterd, gebrande mout, weirde overheersende leersmake , ik kan het niet echt vies noemen maar wel weird, matige body, lage co2 kingstoni (2182) - FINLAND - MAY 5, 2017
