prawlie (1684) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle. Smoky roast aroma. Starts with a large head that quickly vanishes. Pleasant malty taste, the smoke is obvious but not over the top - its very tasty. I got on with this and found it very easy drinking for a smoked beer.

Smoke is quite intense but quite well integrated too. A little smoked fish. Base beer is a little oily. Ok. I mean i do like the smoke not sure about the rest of the beer .
