Pours a dark brown with a noticeable smoky aroma. My first impression was barbecue sauce, but fortunately, the beer was actually pretty good. Definitely smoky, but balanced.

Sample at SBWF 2017. Almost black with a small tan head. Soft with dark malt, light smoke and some caramel. On the light side but an ok one.

prawlie (1675) - 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.

3.5
harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2017
Bottle from GBBF 2017 and drunk at home. Black beer lasting thin tan head Smoke on aroma no doubt. Smoked wood and bacon. Quite smooth in mouth. Smooth porter base. 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 .

Aroma: smoked notes and roasted dark malts. Appearance: black color and creamy head. Taste: smoked notes, coffee, roasted dark malts, chocolate, ashy, dry. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, smoky finish. Overall: Decent smoked porter.

3.9
AnokaBrewer (223) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Light smoky aroma. Almost no head, but good carbonation. Great light smoke flavor that does not overpower. Slightly sweet finish.

3.3
dambor (822) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours black with medium head disappearing fast. Aroma: nice not too dominating smoke aroma (more of a wood smoke than bacon) coupled with chocolate. Taste: here the chocolate dominates, followed by woody smoke. The taste is a bit more watery, but this makes the brew nicely drinkable. Not the smoked beer of the year, but I like it.

3.6
jaghana (6275) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle 355ml, a dark beer with medium head. Nose is on caramel, dark chocolate and smoked notes. Aroma is on dark chocolate and smoked notes, good creamy basis, bit watery but pleasant and well balanced, smooth and rich.

2.7
Blueshawk (464) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
- tiefschwarze Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - angenehm malzige Raucharomen mit einem leichten Toffee-Hintergrund - die Carbonisierung ist für diesen Biertyp definitiv zu moussierend - der Antrunk hält zuerst überzeugend, was die Aromen versprechen - ein angenehm malzige Rauchigkeit umschmeichelt sofort den Gaumen - leider verliert sich dies im weiteren Verlauf relativ schnell - der Körper ist einfach etwas zu schlank bzw. die Kohlensäure prickelt zu sehr auf der Zunge - der Abgang verliert sich dann in einer enttäuschenden Wässrigkeit Fazit: Guter Anfang, wässriges Ende
